    Stupid question.
    How do you connect to the Aires de Service water service?
    Is there a special connection or is it a hozelok type?

    TIA

    Thanks

    Second stupid question(s)

    BSP? I assume its half inch, three quarter or an inch pipe? I was hoping that France would have been standrd fittings

    How many different type of fittings are there?

    hi I have also come across a standard sink type tap, with a push button on the top, had to hold the pipe on and push the button down, and to make it worse on one site the pressure was rubbish, must have taken 30mins to half fill the tank. :Sad:

    As Del said mostly 1/2 and 3/4 BSP and once or twice a hazel lock type, I just went to "The Range" and bought one of all the tap fittings they had in the garden dept.

    Also come across this on a site in france, its a quick release fitting, but they kept adaptors in the site office. Sorry its a crap picture, its the only one I could find.

    I always carry a watering can, as I only wild. Many a time I have used a hand pump in small Spainish villages where they do their washing in large cement troughs. I do have a long 20ft hose with the attachments, hardly ever use it. My Mrs does the washing with the local wives. Amazing how her Spainish and Portoguese has improved.

    I use the piece off of a plastic shower that connects to bath taps put this onto a lenght of hose works a treat. In the last 14yrs of travelling I have only once had a problem I manage to make it fit onto all tap.
