    Exclamation NEED HELP with sink to hose connections PLEASE!!

    I am making a camping sink that will run off a garden hose. This sink faucet (Amico Bathroom Single Hole High Heel Chrome Finish Basin Faucet) is what i have purchased for this project. Its dimensions are Overall Size: 17 x 12.8 x 4cm/ 5.5" x 3.5" x 1.2" (L*W*T) , Water Outlet Dia(Approx): 15mm/ 39/64" and Thread End Size(Approx): 20 x 17mm/ 4/5" x 43/64"(OD*ID). My question is what size connector piece should i buy to connect this to a common garden hose pipe? Or any other solutions/ suggestions to make this project work. Also what does (OD*ID) mean? Thank you.

    OD means outside diameter, ID is inside diameter. (In a pipe, the inside diameter measures the space through which the water flows; the outside diameter is that distance plus the thickness of the material that makes up the pipe. That's why 1/2" OD Pex has a smaller internal opening than 1/2" OD copper; the Pex is thicker than the copper.)

    It looks great but since we are only using it as a play piece in my daughters play kitchen we built I can not speak for the functional quality but it is pretty and a 2 year old has not managed to break it in a month so that says something.
    This was an interesting review I found.

    Any hardware store should have male and female 3/4" hose bib thread adapters. The question is what size is the threads on that faucet base. The size you list seems odd, but this seems to be a cheap import brand and their technical data translations could be better. I was amused when I went to their website and saw that "Amico is an excellent annotation of friend."

    Well spoken Amico. Well spoken.

    I'm guessing that thing is 1/2 iron pipe size thread. Can you take the faucet to the hardware store and try screwing on a few flexible supply connectors? If you can figure that end out it shouldn't be too hard to find a connector that will adapt to hose thread. For instance a 1/2" IPS x 1/2" IPS flexible braided connector and a brass adapter 1/2 male IPS x Female hose bib thread.

    The faucet inlet is metric and the only way you will connect to it is by obtaining a metric 20 mm to 1/2" IPS adapter, then adapting that to a hose thread.
