In response to Re: brass pipe thread
Any thread joint compound will work on brass. The main thing is that it be compatible with the plastic on the pump outlet. Why would you let a few dollars influence your decision, when it could cost a lot more than that when the galvanized one finally fails.

: My new submersible pump has a teflon-like outlet that I need to reduce to 1" (brass bushing) and then connect a 1" pipe thread / to barbed 1" poly pipe
: adapter. Question: Do I use teflon seal tape or pipe goop on brass. Do I really need the brass fittings - they are just a few dollars more. Would galvanized outlive the pump?My little voice say "use the brass you cheapo" but it Doesn't say about the sealer.
