    You can buy a kit of adaptors of various types for hoses. I bought one quite cheaply at Wilkos a long time ago and they have come in handy at times. Garden Centres and places like B & Q will also sell them.

    I imagine it is to reduce the chance of a tap being left running or being interfered with ...

    My fill up hose has a male hoseloc, female hoseloc and brass threaded ends and on the other end a conical rubber fitting / tap connector.
    Never been beaten yet ��
    Wilco sell a selection of hoseloc type fittings for 1 I think ��
    Can we have a photo of your wonder hose please as I am trying to imagine it and can ant fit all the bits in my imagination!��

    I've got plenty of odd connectors that have been collected over the years, came across these type of fittings at a coupls of the aires didn't realise that it was just a male hoselock type of fitting as we didn't need to fill up. I have a few male connectors some with external threads & some with internal threads so it is just a matter of screwing the two together.
