Need faucet adaptor

Hey Guys,

I need the parts list to connect 5/8" inner diameter tubing to my faucet. It's a standard faucet. Can somebody point me in the right direction for the correct adapter and associated parts?

Thanks Much!

you know.... that is one of those things that sometimes sounds easier than it really is.. Staring w/ the "standard" faucet thing.

Example only, I just found a 3/8..

I'd first probably convert it to a hose fitting..


Then find the correct barb..

You know why plumbers always want to install new faucets?
They don't want to spend all day trying to find parts to match the old one!!
Finding the correct adapter to fit some faucets is a real challenge at times. I take the parts to the store so I can see the threads actually do screw together.

if your sink is female I woulhttp://http://m.homedepot.com/p/NEOP...-202243060-_-Nd get this adaptor

There are 2 three types with female ones. This has both. What are you using this for? If for water changes I would get a water bed fill drain kit and a garden hose.
