    How do you connect a Garden Hose to a Sink Faucet in hi-rise Condos to wash condenser

    Im looking for a universal way to connect a female garden hose connector to a variety of sink faucets in some hi rise condo buildings so I can thoroughly wash a/c condensors located on each balcony. There are aerators on each sink faucet so i though this might be the solution :http://www.amazon.com/Do-Faucet-Hose.../dp/B000DZKTYO

    Have you devised a way that works good for you ?

    Ive also considered hooking onto the water heater drain valve except I dont want a ton of sediment all over the balcony.

    thanks.

    your better off hooking up to the shower. every shower i've ever seen is 1/2" MPT. Its alot easier to deal with than the dozen or so different sink faucet threads


    avoid those rubber clamp on things. they are fine for filling water beds and the like, but as soon as you put a nozzle on the hose, they build pressure and blow off.

    I'd go for the shower head too...

    This way you can put a lil extra hose in the tub, that way if the connection leaks, it goes right down the drain. On a sink it could follow the hose down and run on the floor.

    Also, seems the faucets now-a-days aren't all that strong, and a heavy hose on the end of one could do some damage or rip it off.

    Unless its the extension, and it breaks in the wall.

    I use the kitchen sink.

    An adapter comes in a water bed filling kit that I used to carry with me.
    Use the biggest hammer you like, pounding a square peg into a round hole does not equal a proper fit.
