18mm Basic Starter Kit
No-burst coverage for both ends of your hose
The 18mm Starter Kit is a great way to switch over to Hoselink's 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.

Was easy to use and is an honest product doing what it is promoted to do
I have two Hose link reels with various attachments and they both work better and are more durable that any brand I have used over the past 50 years.
I wanted something for the new irrigation system that matched the rest of the hose link connectors. I was surprised it worked on 19mm as the irrigation connectors were already leaking moments after install. These ones are water tight. Super happy.
I've enjoyed hoselink connectors for a number of years investing in 18mm fittings. I was disappointed to learn the 18mm range will be discontinued.
Hi Wayne, Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments. Whilst we are no longer going to be stocking 18mm hoses, we will continuing to be stocking the 18mm connections. Once the current red connections have sold out we will be bringing a new colour range out in the 18mm range so be sure to keep an eye out online. Kind Regards, The Hoselink Team
Just what we expected. Very good.
These are very good, is doing the job.
I use high pressure pumps on all my hose points. Only use 18mm hoses on all properties, so far 18mm fittings handing much better than anything else that I have purchased over the years. Will need to purchase a considerable amount to replace all existing hoses
Quick & fast delivery & best product out all the hose i have used, I'll be keeping on coming back
I have been using 12mm Hoselink products for a number of years and they are top quality.I have 25 taps plus fittings all connections are HOSELINK no leaks or brake away.The 18mm are the same top quality highly recommended .All Hoselink products are trouble free and the best quality products
Really good product. I received it as part of my Christmas present and it was timely as it was comforting to have this volume of water available with the threatening bushfire on January 4th.
