Default Basic plumbing question

Hey:

So out outdoor bar has a sink and the water connection has broken.I took the plastic connector that had broken to Ace and they said they had never seen anything like it before
I need to attach two tubes, one seems to be about 1/4 Dia, the other a but larger, please see pics.
Can anyone tell me the best way to connect these two tubes please?

thanks

Looks like a quick connect, fits inside the hose in the top picture.

Those look like brand-specific quick couplings for your particular make/model faucet fixture. Symmons, Kohler and others are using those a lot nowadays.

Thanks, so if I go to store and ask for a quick connect they will know what I’m asking for?

thanks again

You might be better off trying to determine the manufacturer and contacting them for the parts.

Looks like the sprayer connection. Regular pressure fittings are different.

Looks like 2 different animals that 'aint gonna "mate" the outlet from the mixing valve should mate with a plastic female that slides on and locks at the end of a hose .

That piece with the hose looks like a commercial piece ...

This is exactly what they are. I've installed several faucets that use those type connections. Brand proprietary probably.

You can make it happen , get the hose adapted to pipe thread then go from pipe thread to flare or compression or sweat to the outlet of the mixing valve , you will have to cut the connector off ...

Grandpa was a plumber

“S*** runs downhill and we get paid on Friday”

Sum total of his advice but I loved him anyway

Gas goes up, poop goes down, hot water goes on the left.
