I have a Seamaster 925 fitted with the same Aquaflow system. We experienced the exact same problem as you, and my son found a domestic plumbing nut which would fit, with a little persuasion: it's solid, and brass, so should last. But .. I can't give you the thread size/pitch as I don't know who the supplier was, and my son is now sailing on another boat to the Baltic.

However we have a bigger problem, in that the "hose tail" (which screws into the underside of the tap, and to which the supply hose is fixed with a jubilee clip) has been lost (long story). If you find a source of spares, or anyone reading this has an unwanted Aquaflow 12v microswitch tap, I'd be delighted to know.
