Why Are BSP Fittings So Common In New Zealand?

BSP is an acronym for British Standard Pipe. British Standard Pipe is a family of technical standards for screw threads. These have been adopted internationally for connecting pipe and fittings. This is done so by joining an external (male) thread with an internal (female) thread. 

They are the most common fittings in New Zealand and are found in a variety of metals and plastics across many industries. Even your standard garden tap at home uses a 15NB BSP Thread! Many plumbers’ fittings found in hardware stores and around the house also use BSP threads.
