Re: 3/8 npt to 5/8 barb

Re: 3/8 npt to 5/8 barb

Looks like the OD of your 3/8th pipe thread is the same OD as your 5/8th barb. So a 3/8th pipe nipple with grooves ground in one end should do the trick.

Re: 3/8 npt to 5/8 barb

I thought one should not use brass with salt water. Use bronze with salt water or plastic.

I have been using type 316 stainless for 40 years, with no problem.

Re: 3/8 npt to 5/8 barb

3/8 NPT is 0.675 inch OD. That's just a little larger than 5/8". If I could find a bronze 3/8 NPT nipple, I'd just slide the hose on and double clamp it.
