Author: jjw13 (CA)

Hello, I have a Fantini bathroom sink faucet that has Euro compression fittings and I'm wondering how I can make it work with my standard American connections. Image link included below. Any advice is appreciated! thank you

(see the drop down menu under/in the size listing)


You will need to change the stop to NPT outlet and use a nipple and coupling for height, then, with the appropriate adapter (from the drop down menu), it will be a direct connection to the faucet 'tails'.


You will need the 'tails' EXACT OD in mm (will be a whole number).

Thank you! I don't suppose there's a way without changing the stop?

if you are lucky you will find a pair of these to fit your faucet...
i'm guessing the top of your supplies are like or similar to these.
yes your supplies should simply unscrew from the faucet base and a pair like this will replace them.

That would be ideal! Thanks.

I looked on their site and they list spare parts.
For the hoses it says this: Pair of connecting hoses M12x1 - F3/8”

Unfortunately, the one you shared is a m10. I did a quick search and couldn't find anything, but if others have suggestions for someone who may stock something like this... I'd be so grateful.

I ordinarilly would suggest the 'factory part' BUT it will probably be the same length as the standard 'tails' and you would STILL need some sort of adaptor or extension to make the connection.

You can try: [www.fantini.it]

if the manufacturer makes longer hoses that would be ideal..
if you are buying them elsewhere then you must remove the old ones to make sure the ends are the same.
again... the tops vary from company to company.
as an example here is a kohler hose. ... the top is different

What model is the faucet? Are you sure the brass stubs aren't 3/8" OD? The Fantini faucets I'm seeing either have
3/8" OD sized compression nuts or 3/8" OD tubes that look like yours. If they're 3/8" OD, use a brass 3/8" compression union and a short piece of 3/8 OD copper.

This is what it says for the hoses, but I don't know what the measurements correspond to.

Thanks for your help. I emailed Fantini as well, but if there was something I could tell my plumber to do that would be great. He's perplexed by it I think.

I've emailed Fantini twice and haven't heard back. Not sure why.

Just measure the brass tube outer diameter. See if it measures 3/8",
