¾" Plastic Hose Connector Tap with Boss

This is a tap and boss kit. The tap is a standard plastic garden tap. It has a ¾ inch BSP fitting that screws into a ¾ inch female BSP thread. The mouth of the tap ends in a hoselock connector which attaches to a hoselock, the hoselock fits a standard ½ inch garden hose and allows the quick and easy attachment and removal of the hose. 

The tap comes with a plastic Boss. The boss has a ¾ inch female BSP thread and is used as the anchor point for your tap. Bosses are used to provide a thread for your tap when your tank or container does not have a thread itself. The boss attaches at the back via a back nut and comes with a thick rubber seal. 

To attach the boss simply drill a hole in your tank the same size as the inside circle of the washer. The plastic fitting then goes inside the hole with the back nutt being tightened on the inside of the tank and the washer on the outside. The boss will fit any water tank providing that you can get inside and tighten the back nutt. The tap will then screw into the thread provided by the back nut. 
Included within the price is a free roll of PTFE tape.

Price: £17.00
