    Thanks they are way too big 90 mm fittings what Iím after is a fitting female thread that screws onto my Tao 3/4 inch that allows me to use the 20 mm pipe which I think Iíve managed to find but the threaded outlet on outside tap is very shallow just hope thereís enough to screw onto

    Same as previous top link but looked further up the list of sizes

    You may find the other links are the same - just need to select the correct size from the available sizes

    Also ordered one of these to thread onto tap to extend the length of the tap threads so it tightens on better52146EFC-4A91-4E12-B033-89C745262AC6-4687-000002B736701383.JPG

    Ha ha no even a drip is too much if all fails I will just put the blue water hose and brass fittings back on one of which drips every time you disconnect one of these and push it back on it drips hence the reason I want to try something else outlet side on purifier into drum is on 1 inch pressure pipe 1 inch tank connector in drum dirty side

    Sounds like a plan Dave, good luck

    Once sorted can you put some photos on here please? I'm in the process of doing something similar with 20mm poly pipe supplying my filter top up system.
