The black rubber impeller primed from the bucket in about 5 seconds E. The globe impeller is about 3/64ths too thin. It's pumping like a champ again!

Bronze fittings?

I'm replacing my Oberdorfer n202-15m pump and just wondering what fittings to use. I have a 3/8 NPT to 5/8 barb elbow and a straight 3/8 NPT to 5/8 barb nipple on the old one, I don't know if it is bronze or brass.

I read that brass fittings don't work well with bronze, and while buying fittings made of brass does not seem to be a problem, I'm not able to find any bronze fittings with 3/8 NPT anywhere.

Wonder what others used? Is brass ok? Plastic?

Brass is OK in this application, as it should be protected by your H/X zinc.

Great! Thanks. I was just wondering if I need to replace the HX zinc every year, but looks like I better do.

Re: rebuilding Oberdorfer Pump

Bronze is a little hard to find in 3/8" NPT, you may have to settle on brass. Not ideal, they will just have to replace the fittings more often. Plastic will break too easily.
