    Hello Reefers-

    I have a Red Sea Reefer 250. My Vectra S1 return pump is arriving tomorrow and I'm not sure if it comes with any connectors/adapters to fit the green tubing that came with the red sea reefer.

    Can I connect the green tubing directly into the S1, or will I need some sort of barb?


    Thank you!

    You need a barb.
    Not sure the size of the connectors on the S1 as I have ran only the M1 and L1.
    But you need a slip barb

    Thank you! Aren't the fittings for the S1 and M1 the same?

    The M1 has the 1" and 3/4" couplings.
