I just got the above pump from Reefbreeders. Thought I was ordering Jaebo, not sure of the difference but I love my Photon 48 so trust any product RB'rs sell. What I really want to know is the info on the male thread on pump. Seems to be British thread. I want to hard plumb or transition from silicone tubing to pvc.
What is the proper size and thread to use on the male thread of pump if I do not elect to use the adaptor that came with it?
Thanks for any advise.
Jack

Those are metric do you'll need to get a converter to standard.

Thanks. That's what I thought. Tried Home Depot they looked at me like I was crazy. Any idea where I might get one?

BRS sells them. your best bet is use a vinyl and to a barb to pvc.

Thanks again scuzy but I think those are slip/slip converters. I need something to connect to the male thread (metric/British whatever it is) on the pump and then to good ol USA PVC.

Use the barb to vinyl . Think it provides barb fitting with the box

Hi,

The included connectors will work with 3/4", 1", or 1 1/4" vinyl tubing. It is recommended to go from vinyl to pvc to reduce vibrations, and you can use a vinyl to pvc converter fitting to connect to standard US plumbing.
