I want to connect a pressure washer to my basement utility sink, but the threads on the faucet are incredibly narrow and I cannot find a 3/4" female hose adapter that will work. Is such a part out there? Should I replace my whole dang sink? Any advice appreciated!

Its likely this Kingston Brass faucet. Hose threads are not legal to be placed on that faucet without a vacuum breaker because the hose could be left in the sink basin full of raw sewage

If you're fortunate to still have a legit hardware store nearby, I would remove the spout and take it to see if you can find an adapter.

I think I'd just use the tee in the background and add a second outlet with a valve.

This is awkward, but...
