Whether you’re no stranger to travelling on off-road adventures or are a bit of a newbie, understanding the importance of proper caravan water tank fittings is essential for a smooth and hassle-free journey ahead. So, let's dive in!
The importance of caravan water tank fittings
Caravan water tank fittings provide a secure connection between the water tanks and the plumbing system, preventing leaks, water contamination and other potential issues. By paying attention to the quality and functionality of your water tank fittings, you can avoid costly repairs, minimise water wastage and enjoy a comfortable experience on the road.
Choosing caravan water tank fittings
Our caravan water tank fittings come in various sizes, including 13mm and 25mm Barbed Caravan Water Tank Fittings. We also have 20mm and 25mm BSP caravan water tank fittings that adhere to a standard thread size and design. Once you know what size caravan water tank fitting you require, you can choose from the following:
- Water tank inlet fittings — This is where water enters the tank. It usually consists of a threaded connection or a bayonet-style fitting.
- Water tank outlet fittings — The water tank outlet fittings connect the tank to the plumbing system and may include valves, taps or quick-release connectors.
- Overflow fittings — Overflow fittings prevent the water tank from overfilling by allowing excess water to escape without causing damage.
- Vent fittings — Vent fittings allow air to enter the water tank to maintain proper water flow and prevent a vacuum effect that can impede water flow.

How do I determine the correct size of caravan water tank fittings?
First, locate the existing fittings on the water tank. Measure their diameter using a measuring tape or callipers. Common sizes for water tank fittings in caravans are 1/2 inch (12.7 mm) and 3/4 inch (19.05 mm). Matching the size and type of the existing fittings will ensure compatibility when replacing or adding fittings to your water tank in the caravan.
