Garden hose to regular house tap

Postby NickW » Tue Apr 25, 2017 11:00

Unsure where to post this so feel free to move it!

I'm in the process of building a brew shed and would like to run a hose into the shed into a sink with tap.

Would you know of any adapters or ways to do this?

Open to suggestions!

These

Have the same 1/2" BPS thread (you take the white bit out first I think) you get on 15mm pipe compression fittings. So if you stick one of these on the bottom of the tap

And remove the nut from the non tap end the hoselock adapter above would screw onto it.

You can then just clip your hose over the bottom assuming it has one of these on the end

Not sure if there is an easier method, but this will work well and be easy to clip on and off, assuming you don't want it permanently attached.

I do something similar with my immersion chiller, although it uses a 10mm to 15mm coupler instead of the bit that attaches to the tap.

I have a couple of food blogs

Brilliant! That's exactly what I needed. I'm not very DIY minded so this helped a lot.

Now to scour a car boot sale for a freestanding sink!

There'll be sales over bank holiday too so keep an eye on wickes etc. Make sure you run plenty of water through the hose to condition it a bit, they're not food safe - I think Graham knows a lot about this through his longboat endeavours?

caravan and camping suppliers will sell you blue drinking water hose for a few pennies more per meter than the standard garden hose which wont leach any unwanted chemicals into your brewing liquor. fwiw if=ve had a 25m length stretched out as a almost permenant feed for a few years with no UV issues..
