hello,

Iím attempting to install a T in between the flex hose from the faucet and the ďhardĒ pipe where the flex hose connects to. 

This would be for a water filter and separate faucet. 

It looks almost identical to a 3/8Ē compression fitting but, it seems the 3/8Ē is a little smaller. 

Iím assuming itís another thread standard.  Does anyone know which standard those hoses use?  Metric, British, Iíve seen a couple others. And also where to purchase fittings for the specific thread pattern. 

Thanks,
Justin

I can't be certain regarding yours, but all of the pipe threads on my prior 385 were British BSP.  Here's an explanation of the differences compared with NPT: https://www.ralstoninst.com/news/story/the-difference-between-npt-bspp-and-bspt-seals.

Also, here's a prior post of mine installing a fresh water toilet using BST fittings: https://www.myhanse.com/faucet-feed-connection-size-and-question_topic9596.html

thanks for the advice

I may have to go that route if I canít find the parts. I asked the guys in the boatyard and they pointed me to a website adaptall.com that should sell what I need. 

Thanks again
Justin

If they don't have what you need, search UK suppliers.  Most ship quickly to the US and shipping isn't very expensive.  Good luck.
