I have my tank plumbed with the WB HY7000. It came with a 1" fitting that you glue onto 1" pipe.
I am trying to figure out if the fitting will screw onto the SP6 I just bought?
Here is the SP6 for $169

The SP6 has 1 1/4 inch fittings on it ... great price btw!

ok, I see that. I was going to get the SP4, but the SP6 was cheaper. The SP4 is 1".
I doubt I will be able to get an adapter local that has 1 1/4" female to male 1" both ends threaded.

Probably your best bet at HD or Lowes will be 1 1/4 Male Pipe adaptor (MPT to slip) and a 1 1/4 slip to 1 FPT bushing. You might be surprised at how large (physical size) this pump is also!
