Minor panic - having a worktop fitted over the weekend - have only just remembered to check the connection of the tap hose to the tap shanks - the fittings don't come together! Is it a nut that's used to join the two (not thinking this), or do i need different sized isolators on the end of the hoses? Will my tomorrow morning involve a rush trip to Screwfix? :roll:

Urgent help appreciated!

It's the other end that fits the tap the valve end fits onto the pipe with a compression fitting.

Ah. I think my plumber may have done that as I didn't have the tap at the time. Has meant I can still use the water.

Thanks Toolbox - I take it that hoses are universal in size?

Those look to be 1/2 inch common for sinks and basins, baths are 3/4inch only exceptions are monoblock taps that have smaller connections that are supplied with the tap assembly. So a 1/2 inch (15mm) will fit fine.
