    Hi im moving to a first floor flat and I use a wfp system. Its a 40 40 system in the van. Does anyone know how I can connect to a tap in the bathroom or kitchen as they are not threaded for my hosepipe. Help please...

    get a washing machine hose, screw it under the sink to spare thread, screw in a reducer , get a copper cover from plumbers shop, to fit this thread. buy a brass hoselock with thread,
    1 take cover off,
    2 screw hoselock fitting onto hose thread
    3 connect hosepipe .
    4, turn on the water under the sink for waterflow.
    5 when finished turn water off and remove hoselock fitting and screw cover back onto washing machine hose.

    you should have a fitting under sink with 2 on off taps built on, one for washing machine + a spare one to add dishwasher or similar.
    if you get stuck ill take a couple of pics.
    This is the way i use from kitchen sink, hose going out to fill water butts
