    IMG_20191008_205544.jpg IMG_20191008_205600.jpg What do you call these connectors and can they be applied to a standard hose? If not where can I get a hose with these already on?........... It's from an Aqualaisa shower so if no luck I could always contact them.

    Aqualisa shower valves often use full bore hoses.
    But you could use any other brand that is full bore if the nuts suit.
    Some hoses use small nut on one end.
    The plastic part you have should be detachable from old hose and reusable

    There is a crack in the plastic connector so need a new one.

    Think the part is called 'aqualisa reducer kit white' and you will want a proper shower hose :)

    It will be 1/2" BSP thread hose end,so any shower hose will fit.

    Just make sure the bore of the hose is a good size. Some aftermarket ones are only 1/8" and do a great job of restricting the flow rate. In fact I had one customer who burnt out his power shower pump by fitting a new hose with a tiny bore.

    Thanks for that.
    The bore for the shower hose is 10mm as per the one I have, so I presume the thread will be 1/2 inch (standard) as mentioned above. As I say I nearly baught the shower hose in the link above and I remember seeing a cone shaped chrome connection on one end and I think a bolt type connection on the other, I'm hoping it will all still be compatable.
