  11. Amazing, I'm getting this even though it's more expensive than a new tap! :)

    At least I now know exactly how to fit a new tap if I ever need to!

    So why do farmers use different measurements to everyone else??! (That's a rhetorical question, don't want to take up any more of your time!) I'll post a photo when it arrives, presuming it fits! Devil's advocate can see it for himself at the BBQ!

    BSP threads have been used in plumbing for over 100 years.

    Your lucky it's not 5/8" BSP thread, that was used for old garden taps,& is very rare today.

    My god!!!! 1" is too big, 3/4" is too small, it's taken you all this time to discover that it might just need something in between.

    I am flabbergasted to say the least.
     
  14. I thought you could only get three sizes (1", 3/4" and 1/2"). That's all that comes up when you search for adapters in layman's shops anyway.

    That implies it would be very hard to get a fitting for it,which is not the case.
