Unable to install Y fitting


L

Lew

Hi,

Just moved house, and I'm attempting to fit a "y" fitting on the cold
tap, in the lean-to, in order to plumb in my washing machine.
Unfortunately, the fitting is too large for the tap, is there any way
I can get an adaptor for the tap, and install the "y" fitting on this
adaptor?
Failing this, what are the other options?

Many thanks for any help,
Lew

The default tap thread seems to be 3/4" BSP - which is actually just over an
inch in diameter, and is probably what your fitting is designed to fit.

However, taps are also made with 5/8" BSP or 1/2" BSP threads - and yours is
probably one of these.

Any decent ironmonger or garden centre should have adaptors - possibly in
brass but more likely in plastic - which have a female thread for screwing
onto your tap and a larger male thread on the outside to fit your Y fitting.
