    Black Pentair union to Schedule 40?

    My new filter has these at the base of the cartridge filter. They are socket ends (no threads). Will schedule 40 glue right on or do I need to do something else? I have a set that are threaded inside rather than smooth.

    Thanks. I will keep that in mind. I found pics of them being joined to Sched 40 with the blue but not the red. Good to know.

    They are CPVC so be sure to use a glue rated for both PVC and CPVC. The glue pooldv mentioned would work just fine.
