Replacement valve for the shower faucet outlet?

So...I did a silly thing and tightened the shower hose way too much, causing the male to male adapter for the shower faucet to break (didn't think it would be plastic, don't know what I'm doing). I went to the hardware store and the guy said I'd have to replace the whole faucet because of one little plastic adapter. I don't believe him. I measured the adapter (2nd pic) and the diameter of the threaded part that screws into the faucet is 24mm. Assuming it's standard I thought it might be 3/4" BSP, but it doesn't quite match up with the table in wikipedia. The other end is probably 1/2" BSP considering the guy sold me the tube without asking and 1/2" BSP seems to be the standard. I have found some adapters that do that online like this, this and this, but I'm getting confused between 1/2" BSP and 1/2". In the plumbing world when people say 1/2" do they mean 1/2" BSP? Is this likely to work without leaks? Do I really have to replace the whole bloody thing because of a tiny plastic thing that all the shower faucets in the shop seemed to have? Any help would be hugely appreciated. Faucet and outlet valve The adapter that I broke. The top part screws into the hole on the faucet. The width of the threaded part is 24mm. There would be another 1/2\" BSP thread below but it broke off and is stuck in the hose connector The adapter in place The shower hose and broken half of the adapter stuck inside submitted by /u/Psychedelic_Retard7 [link] [comments]

Faucet and outlet valve

The adapter that I broke. The top part screws into the hole on the faucet. The width of the threaded part is 24mm. There would be another 1/2\" BSP thread below but it broke off and is stuck in the hose connector
