Sump hook up

Postby Mike Brolin on Wed Jan 14, 2015 6:56 pm

Trying find best place to plastic fitting for hooking up sump. Sump came with 1 inch flex hose and need to attach to a Mag 7 I believe has a 3/4 inch male nub. Menard's didn't havewhat I'm looking for. Thanks

I think the Mag 7 is as follows...

Outlet Size / Inlet Size: 1/2" MPT / 1/2" FPT

Hey Mike, I'm running a mag 24 but I used a female/female pvc fitting with a male PVC barb. Then I used a nylon reinforced clear tubing from Menards with an XL zip tie to hold it on the barb. Helps to heat up the rubber tube with a lighter before sliding it on. Maybe you'll be able to work out something similar?
