Hi everyone,

Well, my problem is my outside tap. Every fitting I have bought to attach my water hose has not been the right size. So, I have decided to buy a new tap. How do you measure for a new tap?

Thanks in advance

When it comes to measuring for a new tap for your outside water source, there are a few key factors to consider. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you measure for a new tap:

  • Determine the thread size: To measure the thread size, you can use a thread gauge or a ruler with metric measurements. Measure the outside diameter of the male thread or the inside diameter of the female thread. Common thread sizes for outside taps are 3/4 inch (19 mm) and 1/2 inch (13 mm).
  • Check the connection type: There are generally two types of connections: BSP (British Standard Pipe) and NPT (National Pipe Thread). Make sure to note the connection type, as it should match the new tap you purchase.
  • Measure the tap length: Measure the length of your existing tap, from the point where it connects to the wall or pipe to the end of the spout. 
  • Consider additional features: While measuring for a new tap, it's also a good opportunity to consider any additional features you might want. Take note of any specific features you desire to find a tap that meets your requirements.

You can get screw on adapters for the outside taps that fit the hose attachments. I have them fitted on mine. A much cheaper and less messy option.
