For the sink one of these just be aware there are two sizes so you’ll need to measure mixer nozzle

I use my nilfisk from the water butt, Just use a jubilee clip on the tap. You do need to keep the pressure washer below the level of the tap for it to work.

Do the nilfisk come with a hose?

No, you’ll need a hose to supply the water

I know but i thought regardless there must be a way and i needed one
Does the kitchen tap have screw lines across edge?
If so you can go B&Q and pick up and adapter which you simply screw (3 in 1 for different sink size) on and then click on the hose connection.

Thats what exactly I do.

I linked above to one that just slides over the mixer so no need to unscrew any part of the tap.... even allows warm water then 🏻
Okay then what the first poster mentioned is what you need

All you require is a "Tap connector" - just like 7ommy.78 says. There are expensive ones like "Hozelock" or you can pick up cheaper ones:

Wilko - £3 - wilko.com/en-…821

Says outdoor but is fine indoors. All it does is squeeze over your tap - screw the thumbscrew until tight so it 'grips' the tap and then attach your feed hose to the pressure washer.

If you haven't got one already, you would need a hose "Quick coupler" to plug onto the above connector on your tap. The PW should have come with one though. If not,

Wilko - £1 - wilko.com/en-…818

If you don't wish to use your kitchen tap, the tap connector will fit on any other tap, UNLESS it's a square-type tap - in which case, a different type of connector is required:

Wilko - £3 - wilko.com/en-…812


As you can see, there are many inexpensive ways to cover whatever eventuality should arise and a bit of "kit" that'll solve the problem!

Kind regards, Phsy.
