  • Simplest Mains Water Connection

    I am trying to test a used La Cimbali Jnr D1 and need to hook it up to the mains water supply (don't have a flojet).
    Right now I just want to make a temporary connection, hopefully to a standard 12mm tap fitting.
    The inlet fitting on the machine is a 1/8" male connector.
    Obviously need to buy some hose and fittings, but trying to keep parts to a minium.
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Go to enzed or Pirtek or a plumbing supply shop and get an adaptor for the tap and one for the machine and join the two with quick connect tubing. Or if you just want a quick test a garden hose and some clamps will work for a test. Cheers

      If you have a Reece Plumbing Supplies near you, they will have everything you need. Our local one has never failed to get us out of trouble...

      For reference a couple of other sources of fittings, particularly useful for online shipping, include RS Components, Super Cheap Auto and Hosewarehouse.

    Correction: 3/8" male connector. Lucky I double checked before ordering parts.
