1/2-14 NPSM to Garden Hose Adapter?

I'm just putting the final touches on our dry camping fresh water transfer system. The transfer pump (a duplicate of the one in our Roo) will move the fresh water from our Aquatank II bladder to the fresh water tank.

I'd like to run a short section of garden hose from the Aquatank to the pump's input port and then a longer garden hose from the pump's output port to the fresh water fill. Being plumbing-challenged, I'm not sure of the female adapters needed to connect the hose to the 1/2"-14 NPSM male ports on the pump. The Roo uses PEX fittings.

Thanks in advance!

For gravity fill you need three adapters. You need a 1/2" FNPT to 3/4" FHT and two 1/2" FNPT to 3/4" MHT. That will allow you to connect a hose from the Aquatank to the pump and from the pump to the RV.

For city water fill you'll need 2 each of those adapters.
