What is a " 1/2p " ?

Why do you need a " hose adapter " ?

Can you show us a picture of what you mean ?

That comes with the valve. I don't know if you can purchase separately or not.

Is this thread also yours?

Yes that is also mine. I have two new valves that do not have fittings I can't find them anywhere. I do not know what its called even. Three different manufacturers use the same fitting. But, no one sells it alone.

Please read my PM that I sent you. You will have to pick one name as two are not allowed.

That type of fitting is called a 'union'.

You MIGHT be able to buy a 1/2" union, and if you are REALLY LUCKY, the threading might be the same and you can use just the nut and half of the union...

NL33-3-08 - Cello NL33-3-08 - 1/2" CxF Union (Lead Free)

WP33-08I - Cello WP33-08I - 1/2" Copper Union

I would take the valve to plumbing supply house and see if they can match something up that will work.
