Waterline fittings

So I have picked out my pump, its a SHURflo 4008-101-E65 3.0 Revolution.

What kind of fittings do I need to run my water lines? Are the hose and fittings something I can find at Lowes or HD?


Thanks,

-Doc

We used PEX. David has been runing PEX plumbing in the remodels for quite some time. Likes the stuff. So that is what we used.

Re: Waterline fittings

They can be silly expensive in many shops. Buy in bulk online! This place had them for the cheapest I've ever seen. They seem to work fine: http://www.supplyhouse.com/HydroPEX-...-bag-3854000-p

A bag of 100 for $19.85. I also paid $13 shipping, but a couple other things were included in that order.

Re: Waterline fittings

Thanks for the advice, and I will use pex. another question is, does this pump have regular fittings on the ends or do i need to go to a specialty place for them?
