As I am putting together my order to get my pump for the stand. I'm going with the camlock system throughout. question on connecting the 1/2" ss camlock a style quick disconnect to the pump. It has 1/2 Female NPT, is there a reason I cannot just connect this directly to the in of the pump (other than the fact that they insist on using the plastic coupling). do I really need a coupling attached to the pump and then to use a style F with 1/2 male NPT? On the out of the pump is going a ball valve like most of you use....do i need a coupling there too? or can i just go directly onto the threads of the pump (carefully i know).
thanks again for entertaining my noob questions!
