A garden hose thread is almost the same as a 3/4" pipe thread but is designed to seal tight without any thread sealer with the hose washer. Using Vaseline improves the seal by making the two parts slide together, better. Hose fittings are usually brass or black plastic and it works good with both because it's a grease lube that doesn't dissolve too much by water.

For $2.50 you can get a large jar in the baby section at Family Dollar.

Boats lifts and jet ski lifts love Vaseline petroleum jelly. Rub it onto the stainless cable, and any hard black vinyl boat lift parts that catch a lot of sunshine ..... and it will be a HAPPY boat lift!
