    No as the wingnut connectors have always worked well. The come in either straight or angled. Because they have a conical face they have always sealed perfectly.

    These reducers (3/4" to 1/2") will work but the pump's male screw fittings only has a very small sealing face and could be more prone to leak.

    The instructions tell you to finger tighten only. We then put a spanner onto the nut to 'nip' it up. So it slightly tighter than you can do with your fingers. You have to be careful not to over tighten and strip the threads.
