Your local big box or plumbing store will have a hose adapter you can screw into your faucet, unless you have one of those fancy sprayer faucets.

If the big store don't have them try your mom and pop TruValue or Ace. HD didn't have one for mine, but maw and paw did.

Check your local Home Depot / Lowes also. Readily available and a bit cheaper.
