    I am in the process of setting up a sprinkler pump for my lawn watering. The pump is a Goulds GT15 with 1.5" suction and 1.5" discharge. I am pretty sure I have the suction side good to go, but I am racking my head trying to figure out the best way to do the discharge side. I want 4 hose bibs that will just run above ground hoses and sprinklers. I was thinking of doing a PVC setup for the discharge, but I am not sure how to go from PVC to a metal hose bib properly. Any and all suggestions welcome. Thanks!

    Just glue on a female adapter and screw in a hose bib.

    I thought you weren't suppose to screw a metal piece into a female plastic piece.

    Maybe down in a well, but it won't hurt anything there.
