Willy , do they make 400 meter barge poles ?
Last I heard was that the Brexiteers were clubbing together to pay for it......
7/8" BSP fitting.
Bu jove, I think you may be right!
or better: http://www.mcneilldiy.co.uk/atoni-78quot-brass-snap-connector-34quot-p-3621.html
Since found it cheaper - double whatsit...
Atoni 7/8" Threaded Tap Connector
Fits the 3/4" "Farmer's Tap"
Solid Brass Fittings
Leak & Rust Proof
Note: Inside Thread measures 30mm. YEEEAAAAAAHHHH!
Well done chaps.
Woohoo, thank you!
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.
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.
Adaptors and connectors are readily available,not in slightest rare.
Some how missed this thread,it was only when I read through it today, I realised OP had 7/8" BSP fitting.
And the tap says 3/4" on it!
Didn't say adaptors weren't available,or hard to find, but 5/8" BSP garden taps are rare sight today.
That implies it would be very hard to get a fitting for it,which is not the case.
