Finding a correct fitting for our kitchen tap to hose

Found 14th May 2012
This may be asked before but here goes

We can't seem to find a correct fitting to go onto our tap in the Kitchen

Is there anywhere online we can buy a fitting part so we can connect up e.g hose to wash car, clean the front slabs with a pressure washer etc

Have a look here at the indoor tap connectors. Also have one for a mixer tap as well.

No we're not on a water meter

We're in Scotland and have millions of gallons of water in the hills

In that case get a water butt to wash your car with- much better result, streak free , tap water is craap for washing vehicles and/or glass, (_;)
The taps in my kitchen are similar. Nothing really worked for me, so I fitted a washing machine connected to the cold pipe under the sink. Hose connectors fit to this. The only bother is that I have to remove a draw each time I have to connect the hosepipe, the car doesn't get washed at much though.
