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.

All Hoselink fittings are BPA and lead free

Frequently asked questions for 18mm* Basic Starter Set

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.

connectors are rubbish

the connector was bought several years ago and within about 2 years it had split and I threw it out. went back to brass connectors and no problems since.



Hi Trish, thank you for your review and feedback. Sorry to hear this is the case, definitely not what we like to hear. Our fittings come with great warranty periods therefore, we would be more than happy to look into this for you. If you are able to email us with your purchase details, we will be happy to help! Kind regards, The Hoselink Team

Quality Product

Have been using Hoselink Products now for about 15 Years and have found them to be of good quality and reliable. Hose reels and fittings are the best, we believe, on the market. Replacement parts for spray nozzles etc. Hose reels we purchased at least 15 years ago are still operational and by replacing the covers every few years it make them look like new again. We keep extending our hoselink range as they are released.Just bought the fertiliser spray pack. Best Keith.
