Looking for help cause I don't seem to be able to google the right words.

I'm wanting to fill up an outside bath with warm water and am looking for a hose that will fit over the hot tap. I can find the short ones with the showerhead that people use to wash their hair/dog in the bath. But, where would I get a long hose with the same fitting? And what is this fitting called?

Any help greatly appreciated!

I know what you mean. However those fittings perish very rapidly and do not fit all taps (I would like to get one for when I rinse my hair after dying it, but cannot find one that will fit out tap). I would be tempted to get a plumber to fit something similar to what we needed to install a water filter from the cold tap and then have an outside hot water tap with whatever hose fitting you wanted..

However, how far away is the bath from the tap? would it be possible to run the hot water into the sink/bath and then syphon it out. Yes you would lose some heat in the process, but better than nothing.

Another thought. What diameter pipe are they, would you be able to get a 13mm pipe connector on to lengthen it

Hmm I know what you mean but have no idea of the name...but if you wanted to connect to a kitchen tap you could use something like this: www.hozelock.com/watering/hose-fittings/...-connector-2159.html
Bath taps probably won't have such a thread for an aerator, as they are usually designed for high flow. No one likes a slow to fill bath.

Can you use the shower head fitting to push on the tap, and then attach a normal hose to the (cut off) shower fitting using hose connectors. just an idea as I've no idea if the diameters will match up.

We fill our spa pool by emptying the hot water cylinder into it a couple of times, plus cold water. To feed the hot water into spa via the hose we just take the hose fitting off of the washing machine (hot side) and screw on the 'tail' that is usually screwed to one of the outside taps - same thread. Then attach the garden hose onto the 'tail' as usual and Bob's your uncle.

Keep an eye on the connections though as hot water tends to make the hose very soft and subtle and prone to blowing off of Nylex or similar fittings.

Will a standard diameter garden hose fit over the hot tap at all? If so, (and of course if you have a garden hose handy) a jubilee clip should hold it on tightly enough to fill the bath.

Think this might be what you're looking for.

Thanks everyone! It turns out, as is often the case, I was completely over thinking the problem. A piece of 20mm pvc pipe pushes over the laundry mixer tap very nicely.

Thanks for this post, I have been looking for a solution to a similar problem. The Bunting solution looked ideal, but a bit flash for our situation. So will try a short bit of the 20mm pvc hose, an old Hansen fitting from our "just in case they come in useful" valuables, then a garden hose. The angles are a bit sharp for the pvc pipe on it's own.
