I have purchased a b-hyve HT25 for use in Spain but it has wrong dimension on the pipe threads for Spain. What is the ”name” of the HT25 tube thread?

It is standard American pipe sizing, female (inlet) and male (outlet) ¾”. If you go to a Hardwar store they should be able to help you find a connector piece.Spread the love!June 28, 2018 at 12:50 pm #4058
Are you talking about a b-hyve hose faucet timer with standard US FHT ( female hose thread) on one and a US MHT (male hose thread ) on the other end of the timer or are you talking about one that you bought IN Spain and won’t fit a standard hose bib here in the US ? I didn’t think they made different hose threads on the timer to be used in different countries. Maybe you’re talking about a whole different time other than the hose faucet timer. Guess I’m confused ????Spread the love!June 28, 2018 at 12:54 pm #4059
I just re-read your question. Guess you want to use it in Spain.Spread the love!June 28, 2018 at 1:10 pm #4061
In case you din’t know hose threads , either a FHT or a MHT are different from regular pipe thread which is FIP or MIP …female or male international pipe thread. Notice the HT or IP after F or M . IP can also be in 1/2″ or 3/4″ thread sizing. A female hose thread (FHT) uses a rubber washer where FIP uses teflon tape.Spread the love!June 28, 2018 at 4:40 pm #4067Hans PaulsonParticipant
I have purchased a B-Hyve Smart Hose Faucet Timer via Amazon for delivery to Europe. I assumed that it would then be delivered with garden hose connectors suitable for the European market.
I have read the following about the differences for garden hose connectors in the US / Canada and the rest of the world
The thread standard for garden hose connectors in the United States, its territories, and Canada is known as a garden hose thread (GHT), but its official designation is NH (NH stands for “National Hose”.
¾-11.5NH is for full shape threads as produced by cutting material such as the brass spigot outlet or hose male or female than fitting found on more expensive hoses;
¾ -11.5NHR is for thin-walled couplers produced by rolling thin material, usually brass, typically found on less expensive hoses;
¾-14NPSH is for female hose ends that mate a hose to a tapered pipe thread without a spigot.
In other countries, a British Standard Pipe (BSP) thread is used, which is 3/4 inch and 14 TPI (male part outside diameter is 26.441 mm or 1.04 in).
The GHT and BSP standards are not compatible, and attempting to connect a GHT hose to a BSP fitting, or vice versa, will damage the threads.
I suppose I need two adapters to use B-Hyve Smart Hose Faucet Hours in Europe
“Female (GHT)> Male (BSP)”
“Male (GHT)> Female (BSP)”
Do you agree that these are the adapters I need?
I have unsuccessfully attempting to purchase the above adapters in the Canary Islands where I am located. I think you should deliver B-Hyve Smart Hose Faucet with these adapters when you sell the product to Europe, as it is now the B-Hyve Smart Hose Faucet is unusable in Europe. Can you send me adapters or at least inform me of where I can buy them for delivery to the Canary Islands?

You might look at this and contact them.
Have you called Orbit directly ?
Post here what you find out.Spread the love!June 29, 2018 at 10:54 pm #4155RyanParticipant
@Hans Paulson, yes you will need adaptors if you do not live in the US or Canada however we do not have access/suggestions as to where to purchase them, and we do not produce them. If there is no local hardware store where you live you could check online/amazon.Spread the love!
