I just moved to a new house last week. Today I tried connecting several garden hoses to the both spigots. Each combination of hose and spigots leaked water (more like sprayed) below the connection before the hose (I'm not sure what to call this part). I hand tightened each one. I also used a wrench to make sure the connection was tight without over tightening. I thought that the hoses were old so I bought a new one from Target which comes with a new rubber washer and connected it to both spigots. The same thing happened.
Am I doing something wrong here? Any suggestions? Could the spigots be defective?
