Default Quick disconnects

I am looking for a female quick disconnect that will screw on to the march 809 pump. I dont think mcmaster had them for this application. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Why do you want a female on the pump? I've found the one handed operation of having the QD on the tubing a lot easier. The brass females with hose barbs are only like $8.

I agree with Bobby M. From what I have read around here, everyone puts the female end on the tubing for easy, one handed use

So basically just keep tubing always connected to the inlet and outlet of the pump (stationary)? And use the quick disconnects only on the outlet spigots of the keggles and on the inlet to the CFC?


...just trying to figure it out to not have to order so many. At $8/each, they add up quickly.

Thanks

Actually now thinking about it more, wouldn't it be good to have the quick disconnects also on the inlet and outlet of the pump so I can disconnect everything when I break things down for storage reasons?

I started with males on all vessel drains and the chiller input. The hoses were permanently attached to the pump in/out and the other ends had females (total of two). I then changed over to have hoses with females on both ends so I can just throw the hoses and QDs into the dishwasher once in a while.
