Default Garden tap thread size

I want to buy a hose pipe to attach to the outdoor tap at my new house.
Thread size measures up at about 30mm o/d and a tad less than 2mm pitch
which doesn't seem to be any normal BSP size. Is this a standard metric
thread for garden taps?

All plumbing threads are still imperial afaik
7/8" BSP = standard thread to be found on 22mm compression fittings if
that helps knock up an adaptor.

Usually 3/4" BSP but I have seen a 1" BSP - could that be yours?

In the sheds what you can buy will fit... I thought they where 3/4" BSP
but thinking about it that is the same a washing machine conector which
is smaller, so 1" BSP.

Wikipedia has 1" BSP as 11 threads/inch 1.309 inches dia (2.309 and
33.249 mm). Have you measured yours or just eyeballed it?

AFAIK all garden taps are 3/4" BSP, as are all HPC inlet threads.

Knowing the OP reputation as a precision engineer, I'd assumed his
measurements to be reasonably accurate.
About 30mm o/d and less than 2mm pitch stacks up with 7/8" BSP x 14tpi.

Don't think you will ever find one :-)

IN 30+ years of selling pressure washers I've never come across one that
didn't have a 3/4" bsp male thread for the inlet connection. The
Hozelock tap connectors fit them & the tap.

That may be true, indeed there is no reason to doubt your experience,
but there are 7/8" threaded objects:

tap connectors fit them & the tap.



in my travels around europe in a motorhome, i came across loads of different
tap connections,

in france it seem'd popular to have 2 taps side by side fed from a large
bore pipe, one would be the standard 3/4 fitting for 1/2 inch hosepipe, the
other would be the next size up, used with 3/4 inch hosepipe,

difference in flow was fantastic, could fill the 150 litre tank up in about
half the time with a 3/4 inch length of hose,

I collected a load of adaptors over time, so i could connect to almost any
tap i found, the one that got me was in scotland, service station in
aviemore, sized slightly larger than 3/4, but smaller than any of the larger
adaptors i had, used the back up of the rubber cuf and jubilee clip to
connect to it in the end.

BSP *is* a standard metric thread in Britain. 7/8" BSP is 30.201mm OD x
1.814 pitch, but it is a very odd size to have on a tap. Most are 3/4" BSP.

I have garden taps installed between 1977 and last summer. 3 different
threads are involved.

You're right. Seems to be a ******* size which no one stocks anything for.
Might be easier to change the whole damn tap than try and connect a hose to
it. Arse.

I have the same problem, but it's at an allotment site where I don't own the tap, I just want to attach my hose to it. Did you ever find a solution?

Hozelock recommended I buy their 5/8" attachment - I think in metric so it took me a few beats to work this one out - hey, isn't 5/8 smaller than the 3/4 Hozelock one that I told them was TOO SMALL?

Yes, if indeed what you had was 3/4" BSP. But bear in mind that the
*actual* size of 3/4 BSP is 1.041" (about 26.5mm). If the *actual* size
of the fitting you had was about 3/4" in diameter, could it have been
1/2" BSP - whose size is 0.825" (just under 21mm)?
