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.

18mm Basic Starter Kit

The hose fittings I had on my 18mm hose were constantly dripping / leaking and if you turned off the spray head the pressure would be too much and the spray nozzle would be blown off and water left to leak everywhere. Purchased this kit for 2 reasons, i wanted to see how it went as I had never used Hoselink products before and I also wanted to still keep my long 18mm hose with the intention of upragding to a retractable hose reel later. I was not disappointed, the fitting wne ton easily to my existing hose and there was no leak whatsoever. The only thing that I was hoping to also do was use my existing spray wand with the fittings but when I used the screw fitting it was not compatible and leaked. My own fault, i guess I should have checked before that they would work together. Never mind, super happy and am planning to buy a hose link spray gun as I am very satisfied with the quality and performance of the products. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to have zero issues. Payment was easy, price was fair and delivery was fast.

Hoselink Tap Connector - guaranteed no leaks

Great product, no hoses blowing off under pressure- water tight design and very robust.

I was a bit confused upon opening my eParcel. After a short time I phoned Hoselink for help... They were fantastic. I think it was Lisa? who answered and she could see on the computer who I was and what I had purchased. She soon put me at ease and I was connecting 'the bits' in no time. My 18mm hose ( which I use from the dam , has strong pressure) is in good shape now, thanks to Hoselink! Great product.

Thanks Hoselink, I finally have hose connections that will not leak, or come off the end of my hose and see me soaked with water.

Hose connectors

Most products are designed to fail after x amount of time not hose link connectors after 10+ yrs of daily use ,I haven't even had to replace the O rings so not only are they the best their longevity also makes them the cheapest
