Product Info

New Colour option now available!


Specially designed for use with Hoselink’s new 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.

Hoselink’s durable new 18mm Tap Connector is specially designed to deliver a 100% watertight seal. Simply screw it onto any size Australian tap and rest assured it won’t leak or burst off under pressure.

As the 18mm Tap Connector has a female thread, it can also be used on any other accessories that have a male thread. For example, pressure washers (Gerni and Karcher), caravans, boats, and some manual wind hose reels.

If you have more taps than hoses, we recommend you purchase additional 18mm Tap Connectors for all of your taps. This makes transferring your hose from one tap to another easy.

Please note: the 18mm Tap Connector is only compatible with Hoselink 18mm hose fittings. Only order the 18mm Tap Connector individually if you are ordering or already use Hoselink 18mm hose fittings.

Purchase Hoselink hose fittings and join thousands of Australians enjoying a better watering experience. Our 18mm 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

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 the same colour as the 12mm fittings?
A. We wanted to make it easy for customers who use both 12mm and 18mm hose fittings to identify which is which.

Brilliant Design

This was purchased as a backup to what I already had. Sometimes it's too easy to misplace things - and this is an item I do not want to misplace as I would then not have a hose to use. On the hole - the HoseLink hose system is second to none. So efficient and easy to use - with absolutely no water wastage.

Hoselink; no-leak fittings - On a rural property, the best way to save your most valuable asset (WATER)

Always an amazing design. Very helpful staff over the phone. A really fast shipping time with lots of updates to let you know when to expect your next shipment. Is totally a great product - when you live in a rural property you need the added confidence in maintaining your most valuable asset (WATER) - is so really important you have the right product that won't let you down. I have now used your hose fittings for years and the fittings have outlasted all my hoses. I am gradually changing all my rural hoses to 18mm fittings - is a long process because I have lots to do Highly recommended
