Just make sure the fitting doesn't have any coatings on that may leach into the water. Gas fittings are not supposed to be used on water pipe, especially not the yellow palstic ones. Should be OK with galv though.

I was about to say:

Go and get a proper coupler, it will only be a couple of quid and you'll have peace of mind.
