I am building a garden irrigation system which is directly connected to a tap. In Europe the garden taps are usually BSP 3/4" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Standard_Pipe). It would be great to have it compatible to the US, therefore I am wondering if you use the same system or what is a standard garden tap thread over there?

Any clues or just stating what you have in your garden would be great!

In the U.S. the standard is simply called Garden Hose Thread or GHT,. It's a 3/4" straight thread with a coarse thread pitch and is not compatible with the BSP which is a finer thread pitch.enter image description here

  • Thanks a lot! For design purposes I would need: minor/major diameter of the thread for the internal and external threads respectively, ideally also tolerances for all 4 values... Could you guide me where to find that? – Sebastian Jun 7 '15 at 17:23

The US uses 3/4" straight thread, with 11.5 threads per inch according to Wikipedia

http://catalog.tapcotaps.com/item/all-categories/popular-special-taps-right-hand-/72518 From Tapco taps. The reason no one can find GHT taps.. is because that's the thread name.. the TAP name is National Hose Thread 3/4 11 1/2 NH The link is for the Best.. too expensive, buy one from china. Remember that it's a meaty 3/4" hand tap so breaking it will be horrifying, buy a good one .. :)
