Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Am trying to locate a supplier for the small 1/2 inch ferrule that screws onto the bottom of the taps used on the water dispensors.

    NSN would be fine as I could track down the maker using ISIS.

    Thanks in anticipation

  4. Look in Homebase. They're called "Tap hose connectors." (These are for 1/2" hose).

    I've had problems finding them in the past and ended up buying complete "bib taps" just to get the bit on the end.

    Other than that, try your local builders' merchant, plumber's merchant or, perhaps better still, garden centre.

    The correct term is "hose union" or "hose tail."


    Here's a supplier:

    putteesinmyhands,

    Thanks for that, have place an enquiry on the web-site. I need about 200+, so homebase is not really an option.


    CH512O,
    Hope you had a good Xmas and New Year, give us a call and I will update you on the project.
