Washing machine connector to tap

Post by mikehibbert »

I have a hot and cold washing machine connector in the utility room and I want to put in taps, so I was hoping that I could get a washing machine to flexi inlet (the standard ones on new mixer taps) connector. But I've had a look and can't see anything obvious. Is there such a thing, and what's it called?

Cheers
Mike

Why can't you connect the washing machine hoses to the connectors that are there?
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.


Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

1. Washing machine connectors have 3/4" BSP male threads.
2. Most taps with flexis have either 1/2" BSP female or (e.g.Grohe) 3/8" BSP female threads.
3. Google 1/2 3/4 BSP connector and you'll see various possibilities.
4. If I were doing it I'd lose the washing machine connectors, and use a pair of Screwfix 2665R (1/2") or Screwfix 3089R (3/8") to a pair of isolation valves to the copper pipe.
