I got a hose earlier to wash my bike with. The connector to screw onto my outdoor tap, if the packaging is to believed, fits "95% of UK taps".

Of course I am in the 5%, so it does not fit.

My 1970's tap has a 22mm diameter thread, so is somewhere between 1/2" and 3/4" BSP.

Anyone know what size it is? I can't find anything other than 1/2" and 3/4" for sale.

I have just brought a Hoselock tap to hosepipe connector.

Got home, attempted to fit it but it wouldnt go on. Was about to curse and swear but then :idea:

I looked at the connector and noticed it actually fits 2 sizes of taps. The inside pops out to allow for a slightly larger tap.

Check yours, you might get lucky.
