    Im both confident and worried now, ive ordered a 1 1/4" BSP hose tail so i hope it fits.. be a bummer if it doesnt. Are your fittings npt?

    I have two DCT 12000's on my display tank pushing 7ft of head pressure for over a year with no issues. I just bought a DCP 10000 and a DCP 4000 for my new 168g Rimless tank build. I like them a lot. I have about 8 different powerheads as well from Jebao that work really well also. thumbs up!!!;)

    Sorry but I do not know what npt means. I looked at the fitting and the package and do not see anything that says npt.

    Npt as in relation to the thread type, npt or bsp .. 1 universal thread is apparently too much to ask for haha

    Got ya. Unfortunately I can't tell you if it's npt or bsp. But yeah there's way too many variables available for a guy like me

    Also the fitting that screwed into is a standard sch 40 fitting. Not sure if that helps

    I heard a way to tell is that BSP is uniform all the length of the thread and NPT tapers at the end.. not sure how reliable that is

    Gotta do what you gotta do!
    It really amazes me how all other sizes of this pump will work with standard pvc fittings except this one.
