If I remove the vacuum breaker, I have two female connections, neither of which appears to be NPT (assuming NPT is "pipe thread"; when I removed the vacuum breaker to take it to the local hardware store, the thread wouldn't work with normal pipe fittings and the hardware employee said that the thread was different from "pipe thread").
So two questions:
1) even if I get a new vacuum breaker I have a two female connection problem because the vacuum breakers are M/F and the shower hose is F.
2) what is the thread type on these fittings?
