I have bought the Garden pipe from Amazon and also bought the universal tap connector adopter to connect to the pipe but it doesnt seems to fit in and i think i need some sort of push fit connector, I have tired to look online on ToolStation and Screw fix but not very sure about the correct connector that will work for me.

Any advice appreciated.

-Garden Pipe link

Any advise on this please.

as summer draws on, you will find a kit of brass connectors and adaptors, quite durable, in the Aldi Aisle of Mystery at a very good price.

it looks like you have a plastic clamp-on for your tap, which is not very good. Have you got an actual garden tap with a screwed spout?

I've standardised on the Quick Connector for everything.

this is a typical garden tap with a 1/2" BSP screwed spout (you can't see the screw because there is an old-style hose connector on it, which you can remove.


1/2" BSP does not actually measure 1/2", for historical reasons, but that's what it's called.
