Hose Fittings and Adapters have different uses. A hose fitting is either ”attached” to the hose by a crimp, or internally expanded to make a more permanent assemble. An adapter can either be attached to a hose by use of a band or some other method where it can disassembled easily, or it can “adapted” from a hose fitting to mate up with another type fitting.
