      This is the one I use. I get it at the Auto Parts store. I make sure I only get it on the male thread and have never had any ingress to the system.

      The second picture shows the mix of brass, cast and steel fittings I use. I go for USA when I can, but somtimes (weekends, holidays etc) I get impatient and use what I can get.

      By the way, My couplers face down to prevent debris entering, and relieve angular stress on the hose. It also seems to help the cheapies seal without 'arranging' the dangle.
