Male end on hose, or female end on hose… one of those things like ketchup on a hot dog, or mustard on a hot dog. Everybody has the way they prefer, and either one works. Pros and cons to either method… try it both ways to see which you like.
I suppose technically you could make a case for male end on hose being the ‘best’ way… but again, either way works.
One slightly convincing argument i recently heard for male end on the hose, was that when rinsing with a ball valve, the water pattern and force is better coming out of the male end, rather than the female. Makes sense. I might try that some day to see how big of a difference it is.
Which leads into this comment:
Yes. One veteran said this is the way he rinses… not sure how it compares to just having the plug on the hose end.
