Shower hose joiner

Have been looking around, screwfix, b&q, ebay... to see if there is such a thing...
I want to join two shower hoses together to make an extra long one.... the longest I have seen is 1.75 mtrs  but I would like a minimum of 2.3 mtrs, so joining two1.5 together would give ample lenghth..
Has anyone come across such and item... if so... please can you point me in the right direction >>> ? ?

1.75m, pah! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/251227250860?  Cheesy
Loads around 3m long.  Wink
You'll want a large internal diameter one if flow/pressure is a problem.

Re: Shower hose joiner

Shower hose connectors are (almost always) 1/2" BSP (parallel thread), search 1/2" BSP nipple (beware they come with tapered as well as parallel threads) and you should find something suitable (they should be available in brass, stainless steel and plastic to suit different requirements) - if HPSauce's suggestion doesn't suit.

Re: Shower hose joiner

I have to ask...
Why is that called a nipple?
Doesn't look much like one.  Grin

It was named by engineers, they (we) find such things amusing.
Nipples
Nuts
Flange
it's a laugh a minute.

Re: Shower hose joiner

Once again.... this forum has come up with the goods... I would never have thought of looking for " coupler "    Shocked    ... or "nipple"..  Embarrassed  with respect to a "connector"...  Huh
Anyway... as I already have two 1.5 mtr hoses... I`ll go for 2cvbloke`s answer for 99p... 
Thanks guys.... Brill !  Cheesy

Because what connects to it goes around the outside....like a baby's mouth.
