    Briot Accura Cx plumbing question

    I recently acquired a used Briot Accura Cx with a recirculating system. I need to connect to the water inlet but do not recognize the interface. The manual simply describes it as a "quick connect water connection". It it built to a US standard a French standard? I want to just go to the hardware store in the USA a buy a connection and I don't want to carry the machine in or disassemble the water/solenoid manifold. Anyone know what kind of connector it is? Thanks in advance.

    Briot water connection

    The hose has a special connector that presses into the water valve at the center front of the machine, it should lock tight at that point. The valve has a lock similar to an air connector, you have to hold the ring tight against the valve connection to extract the hose, the other end is a standard 3/4" female iron pipe thread, fitting. If you do not have the hose contact Briot @ www.briotusa.com, the part you need is S130064.

    Thanks for the information. I ordered some stuff from them last week but didn't see anything like this on any parts list or order form so I guess I''ll have to call them. This is my first experience with quick disconnects for water. I did figure out how they work at the hardware store. The CX manual does not specify size though. A 3/8 is too small and I could not get a 1/2" to go in. Is it some metric standard hose size?? Thanks.
