Posted 30th May
Could anyone point me to a decent hose pipe connector for the kitchen tap ... we have a pool to fill but the last 2 connectors just seem to not fit or wont hold the pressure

I have even tried the balloon trick as seen on you tube again no luck!!

Please somebody help !!
Gracias !

you need a mixer tap connector, this one worked for me though there was some trial and error setting it up working out which way round washers go

I tried a couple to try and get a bit of hot water into my kids pool when I first bought it, none worked, had to just suck it up and make do with cold from the outside tap.
Why don’t you just install a hot outside tap? We charge £65

Just bought 2 diffrent ones from.wilko thr water pressure just bursts out ... had enough of it I give up.
If you can afford an outside tap (mine cost £70 to install done in less an hr by plumber) do that. I tried loads of connections & they all leaked or came off the tap spraying water all over the floor.

And you should have a full paddling pool in about a week.....
I got one of these, unscrewed the bit in my kitchen tap, had to take the washer out and use it in this, without the rubber washer it made a right mess. Screwed this is nice and tight and did a good job. Lovely hot paddling pool. Good luck

Could always get a more suitable mixer tap that doesn’t have a rounded face. Probably find one on eBay second hand for pennies.

I did the same. So much better than all the other hacks I had tried.

Still leaks a bit but I put the washing up bowl upside down over the tap so any spurts get redirected into the sink.
Connect to washing machine tap.
Doubt you will fix to that mixer tap. The pressure will cause the neck seal to break. standard hose pipe outside tap connection kit will fit the ¾ BSP washing machine or dishwasher tap. Think you remove white bit and just use the yellow on washing machine tap.

Doesn't that 90 degree portion unscrew off? Then you can just fit a "pressure fit" hose connector?

If not, have you already tried one of these? £3

These don't work and always leak everywhere
i've been using the following fitting for years on my kitchen tap. Does not always give the perfect seal but is more than adequate. All you need to ensure is that you tighten it hard. Use a pair of pliers, do not hand tighten. This should give a very good seal. they're from wilko

Same goes for the following connector type. Also from Wilko. Ensure to tighten with pliers. Just don't overdo it.
