Product Info

The 18mm Starter Kit is a great way to switch over to Hoselink's new 18mm no-burst hose fittings.

18mm diameter hoses are typically used in rural and commercial applications and provide a higher water flow rate than standard 12mm hoses and fittings.

Built tough for Aussie conditions, you can count on Hoselink’s hard wearing long lasting hose fittings to NEVER burst off!  These innovative hose fittings provide a 100% watertight connection every time.

This kit includes:

  • Universal 18mm Tap Connector
  • 2x 18mm Hose Connectors (1 for each end of the hose)
  • 18mm Accessory Connector (screws into thread of your watering accessory)

Thanks to the ergonomically designed ‘point and twist’ connection they are easy to use, including those with arthritis.

To keep things as simple and user friendly as possible, the face of each fitting is identical. This means each part of the Hoselink 18mm hose fitting system is completely interchangeable. You can connect your tap to hose, hose to accessory, and hose to another hose without using additional parts. Now isn’t that easy.

Purchase Hoselink hose fittings and join thousands of Australians enjoying a better watering experience. Our hose fittings are covered by a 2 year warranty and if you aren’t satisfied with your purchase within 30 days we’ll happily give you your money back.

Q. Can I use 18mm hose fittings with my regular green and yellow 12mm Hoselink hose fittings?
A. The O'Ring to O'Ring faces are not compatible between the 12mm and 18mm range. However you can make a connection between the 2 systems by coupling an 18mm Accessory Connector into a 12mm Tap Connector (or vice versa).

Q. Can I fit 18mm hose fittings to a standard garden hose?
A. 18mm hose fittings have been designed specifically for use with 18mm internal diameter garden hoses and cannot be used with regular 12mm garden hoses.

Q. Why would I use 18mm hoses and fittings?
A. Larger internal 18mm diameter hoses and fittings are typically used in low water pressure situations, or where a high volume of water is required.  They are often used in commercial situations such as at sporting fields, golf courses, nurseries, farms and parks.  Many people in rural situations use these hoses where water pressure is very low, such as supply from a dam or tank.  Anyone can choose to use 18mm hoses and fittings but they're typically used as a solution to low water pressure.

Q. What are the locking tabs for?
A. Our 18mm hose fittings have been designed with locking tabs to ensure they never, ever twist apart.  We DO NOT recommend you insert these to begin with as once installed, they cannot be removed (and may get in the way of easy use).  They may be useful in situations where the weight and particular use pulls the fittings apart, such as at a hose join.  In this instance, you can insert a locking tab (on one side only is necessary) to ensure the fittings won't twist apart.

Q. Why aren't the 18mm fittings green and yellow?
A. We wanted to make it easy for customers who use both 12mm and 18mm hose fittings to identify which is which.

Does what it claims. No more leaks at the taps and no more " popped off " sprinklers !!! Very Happy. Customer service excellent and prompt delivery. Just note - if you have Wobble Tee sprinklers you need the tap connectors to attach these, so would need to add extra of them to your order.

Absolutely delighted with the hose link products. We have replaced all of our fittings and love how easy it is to join hoses without looking for that illusive joiner.

Simple as "ABC"

Fitting to my existing hose was a breeze. No leeks, no problem. Do the 3/4" mix and match with the 1/2" fittings I wonder and do any of the fittings have 1/2 BSP thread?

Happy wife, happy life!

My wife was so frustrated with hoses disconnecting from taps etc in a period of extended hot weather, so Hoselink was the ideal Christmas gift from me and the (adult) kids. The products are 5 star - connections are foolproof and leak-free and the hose reel is perfect for ease of storage. After the Christmas present, I was instructed to buy more! So now her large garden can be watered from everywhere and with the greatest of ease.

Works exactly as described. It's a good product.

Absolutely Outstanding- Survive the rigours of cat

8 May 2016
We run a cattle property and use portable troughs for stock watering. We have been through dozens of 3/4" click couplings, all makes, plastic and brass. All of them fail, they just cannot survive the conditions in the paddock. When they fail we have big water losses and big mud patches. We were at first a bit dubious about the Hoselink product and bought a 3/4" starter kit to try on one trough. It has been excellent, it does not leak, the cattle do not pull it off when they drag the hose, the connection catches do not break and pressure does not blow it off the hose. We have had absolutely no problems with the trial connectors. We will be upgrading all our click fittings to Hoselink and throwing the old click fittings away. If they can survive cattle they can survive anything!

Bush block

27 February 2016
I installed a dripper system on my bush block to water recently planted tree ferns. Seeing we don't live on the property, I wanted a system that would not fail. I found that product through hoselink. Awesome, couldn't be happier!! Thankyou hoselink :-)
