British Standard Pipe thread is still being used from Australia to Zanzibar
Does he need to know which tails are on the taps? Could be standard 1/2" or perhaps you have a monobloc with 10mm / 15mm tails or such like. BSP has nothing to do with the kitchen sink - who's supplying?
He'll be turning up in a Ford Cortina by the sound of it! Otherwise he'd stock all fittings for all BSP sizes on his van.
Could be 10/12/15mm tails though some manufacturers thoughtfully include an adaptor to 15mm copper.Just watch the flexi 1/2" to 15mm isovalve jockeys!
is bandq sink with a mixer tap, i've no idea about plumbing all i know is there are 2 15mm tails [hot and cold] currently in situ waiting for attachment
