Thought I'd ask the experts.
What water hose adapters do I need to fill from the Wild camping POI fill up points.
Never done it yet, but just know that I wouldn't have the right one.
What do people in the know carry?
Thank you all

Two watering cans as it's easier to walk and you only have to walk half the distance. The problem with hoses is you may have all the fittings but you cannot reach the tap. We stayed on a C&MC site the other week and the tap was a couple of hundred yards away from where we were. As for Wild Camping taps some of the taps are on beaches or a walk from a car park or a tap in a toilet.
My level of sarcasim depends on your level of stupidity
Don't expect to find a tap at some of these locations. They are not fill up points they are taps that have been found that don't appear to be locked. Some you have to ask and don't be surprised if they say NO. We found one in Norfolk supposed to be in the toilet but the toilet had changed and the tap was missing. The guy servicing the toilet block let me fill up using the tap behind the workings. There is also one in Bakewell that gets it's water from the local river. Just looks like a normal tap. They do have a drinking water tap about 4ft up a wall that is in a building thats locked at night and it has a sign on it Drinking Water. We did meet one Dutch guy in Spain who had filled his MH up using the tap on the beach. When he went to make a cup of tea it tasted of salt. The one in Buxton has to be the best. Just runs all the while and people just walk by and fill their water bottles up.

Rather than use a watering can I have a couple of 8 litre containers that originally contained supermarket bought bottled water.
as well as the 1/2 inch and 3/4inch female threaded connector , one of these Twin Tub Rubber Replacement Fill Hose for Thompson X11-1 Twintub | eBay will fit on nearly any tap and prove useful generally
