I want to buy a hose pipe to attach to the outdoor tap at my new house.
Thread size measures up at about 30mm o/d and a tad less than 2mm pitch
which doesn't seem to be any normal BSP size. Is this a standard metric
thread for garden taps?

Wikipedia has 1" BSP as 11 threads/inch 1.309 inches dia (2.309 and
33.249 mm). Have you measured yours or just eyeballed it?
Don't think you will ever find one :-)
IN 30+ years of selling pressure washers I've never come across one that
didn't have a 3/4" bsp male thread for the inlet connection. The
Hozelock tap connectors fit them & the tap.

in my travels around europe in a motorhome, i came across loads of different
in france it seem'd popular to have 2 taps side by side fed from a large
bore pipe, one would be the standard 3/4 fitting for 1/2 inch hosepipe, the
other would be the next size up, used with 3/4 inch hosepipe,
difference in flow was fantastic, could fill the 150 litre tank up in about
half the time with a 3/4 inch length of hose,
I collected a load of adaptors over time, so i could connect to almost any
tap i found, the one that got me was in scotland, service station in
aviemore, sized slightly larger than 3/4, but smaller than any of the larger
adaptors i had, used the back up of the rubber cuf and jubilee clip to
connect to it in the end.

b You're right. Seems to be a bastard size which no one stocks anything for
. Might be easier to change the whole damn tap than try and connect a hose
to it. Arse. -- Dave Baker
I have the same problem, but it's at an allotment site where I don't own th
e tap, I just want to attach my hose to it. Did you ever find a solution?
Hozelock recommended I buy their 5/8" attachment - I think in metric so it
took me a few beats to work this one out - hey, isn't 5/8 smaller than the
3/4 Hozelock one that I told them was TOO SMALL?

Yes, if indeed what you had was 3/4" BSP. But bear in mind that the
*actual* size of 3/4 BSP is 1.041" (about 26.5mm). If the *actual* size
of the fitting you had was about 3/4" in diameter, could it have been
1/2" BSP - whose size is 0.825" (just under 21mm)?

I made a 7/8 bsp female thread to 3/4 bsp male thread adaptor to suit hoselock
connectors also made 7/8 bsp female thread to hoselock quick release connector
both work very well I may sell if anyone is interested
