Default need to fit garden hose end to either of faucets

I purchased a garden hose to do a cleaning and spraying job around a balcony a while ago but since I live in a condo not house having some hard time finding a water outlet to use it. I tried to find some adapter from kitchen area but it does not extend all the way around the balcony so my best choice seem to be a bathroom which is right next to a balcony. However none of the faucets in the bathroom will fit wondering if there is any solution available...???

I would try a quality plumbing supply place first.

If not, try this ... readily available on Amazon

There are adapters that fit the threads that hold the screen on the end of the faucet. Kitchen sinks attach portable dishwashers that way. I just converted an old claw foot tub to make it a shower using a diverter connected to and adapter. I don't know for sure what you need but take the end off your faucet and find someone at the plumbing area at one of the home improvement stores and tell them what you want to do. There is always someone around that knows plumbing. If they play dumb ask for the expert.

The other thing you could do is tee into the cold line under the sink and make a connection there.

Callmevilla has got you covered but, if you can, you can always attach the hose to the bottom of your water heater.

If you screw this in with your fingers you may get cut. Use pliers, some have plastic lined jaws to prevent damaging the threads.

There is always that thing called a mop and bucket (maybe a scrub brush or stiff broom). If you have an upstairs unit, be sure to give the neighbors a courtesy call before you start splashing.

Take a photo of the supply lines under the bathroom sink with a couple fittings you can have a hose bib under there too.

Thanks guys. It is just one story unit and bottom. It turned out that the bathroom sink's end is removable so I used the pliers to break free and screwed it off. this looks promising I all let you guys know how it went.

Any hardware, Lowes or HD will have that adaptor in the plumbing area in those small plastic bins.

And with the adaptor and a 6" length of hose with mating female coupling, you can clear out drains before you try the chemical or snake option. You may need several adaptors that mate to different aerator threading. Pack a rag around the hose as a gasket.
