    Default Attwood T800 directly to ball valve?

    Was planning to mount a T-800 (from wakemakers) directly to a ball valve to fill my IBS and noticed that the T800 has straight threads and the ball valve has tapered threads. Any issues with making this connection? Attwood makes p/n 4653 which is the T800 with NPT threads. Do I need to get the NPT threaded T-800?

    People do it all the time (though that doesn't make it right). If it were me I'd get the right threads. You probably know this but remember that you can't cut tapered threads shorter so make sure your sizes will work.

    Thanks Dan, I think I'll order the p/n with the right threads. Hey thanks again for the pics you sent of your setup. Helped immensely.

    No problem, glad the pics helped. Looking forward to seeing some pics of your completed setup. What all do you have planned?

    Is your ball-valve straight or pipe threads?

    Why not just get an adapter?

    Not sure I follow but I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to plumbing. Is there an adapter with NPT on one side and NPS on the other?

    Basic setup is:
    1. iBS plumbed with dedicated fill pump and two drain pumps ( one on each leg). 3/4" lines with separate switch.
    2. 1100's in the rears with dedicated T1200s. 1" lines. Drains are Rule 1100s with one inch lines.
    3. Center bag on dedicated fill pump with 3/4" lines

    Nothing too complicated but some thing that speeds fill times a bit and allows automation of the IBS. Still have to fill a 400 on the seats but not sure how to get around that other than a custom Enzo-style sac.

    I would assume there is. Lowes carriers tons of different adapters
