Watertight seal for 18mm fittings. *Suits Industrial sized 18mm hose fittings only
NOT COMPATABLE WITH STANDARD 12mm FITTINGS!
Specially designed for use with Hoselink’s 18mm hose fitting range.
18mm diameter hoses are typically used in rural and commercial applications and provide a higher water flow rate than standard 12mm hoses and fittings.
Never get frustrated with your hose leaking or bursting off your tap again!
Hoselink’s 18mm Tap to Hose Set securely connects your tap to your hose in a watertight seal that won’t burst apart.
The 18mm Tap to Hose Set is made up of two individual Hoselink parts:
18mm Tap Connector
18mm Hose Connector
Thanks to the ergonomically designed bayonet style connection you simply line up the Hose Connector to the Tap Connector and ‘point and twist’ to join them together. It is an easy to use connection for any age, including for those with arthritis.

Frequently asked questions for 18mm* Tap to Hose Connector 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.
We recently bought a hose connector from www.hoselink.com.au and it turned out that we ordered the wrong size. So when the part arrived I wrote to ask if there was somewhere local we could make a change for the correct sized connector. Well.......... we received the following reply:- Thank you for your email.
I have gone ahead and organised for a universal tap connector to be sent out to your address. No need to go to the hassle of returning the incorrect fittings, you can gift these to a friend or discard of them however you wish. ALL AT NO CHARGE.
Now how amazing is this????? Thank you Hoselink, this is above and beyond.

Very good item but connection only to a very large hose.
I bought this connector for a larger tap but I didn’t realise that it only connected to a very large hose.
I contacted Hose link and the sorted it all out very quickly.
