No. Those won't work either.

 

I can't find how that swivel is joined to a FG fitting atm.

Someone must have a solution. I can't see everyone just moved to standard hose, sort of defeats the object of installing JG in the first place.

You can get similar swivels like this for a few quid off ebay if you search

Them add a screw in jg pushfit and job done

Yeah that was the kind of thing I was looking for but they're all over £40 😞

 

I was thinking something like this....

It would be better if it was an elbow but as long as it swivels I can work with that I reckon.

With a bit of hot water and some persuasion you can slip the 1/2 inch hose over the hoselock connector. A hose clamp later and job done.

Did that on my tank for a year, no issues.

I'll save that as a back up plan haha.... I imagine it would work. I just can't believe they don't make this as a standard. Really surprised there wasn't a simple solution, surely lots of people use John Guest fittings 🧐

I built my own system, JG are good but pricey. I used pushfit plumbing connections from Wickes. less than half the price just as good.

The plumbing hose from there is very cheap and just as good as well.
