Discuss Kitchen tap-safe to use outdoor hose attachment? in the DIY Plumbing How-To Guides area at PlumbersForums.net

Hi everybody

We currently have an issue with our outdoor tap (possible issue with the check valve-not overly urgent and I’m not confident enough to start a repair job myself in the current climate).

Due to the dry weather I am keen to keep the garden watered and have managed to get a hold of a Hozelock mixer tap adaptor. I am just wondering if this is safe enough to use-ie do mixer taps have a check valve to prevent backflow when the hose isn’t on?

Any advice would be much appreciated.
