    It all depends on how you want to plumb it. I looks like your bulk-head flange is meant to be used with threaded fittings on one end and socket glued on the other end.

    To me, neither type is easier than the other. Just two different methods

    So, I take it I'd need to socket glue a hose in? How would I go about that?

    You will have to use PVC fittings, flexable hose and PVC standard grade glue. Cut everything and fit it place. Once you have put everything together and it looks like you have everything fitting good, take it apart and glue it together oc by pc. After allowing it to cure for 24 to 48 hours you are good to go

    I wasn't too clear in my last post. The flexable hose that I meantioned must be PVC as well. Its the same type of PVC flexable hose used on jetted tubs.

    Ah. I'll look when I go to the hardware store next.

    http://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Glue-5...1945213&sr=1-1 Would this kind of glue work?

    No, only standard grade PVC glue will work. There are different companys that make them, but almost all hardware stores will carry it



    Most hardware stores will not carry the flexable PVC tubing, you might have to go to a store that sells plumbing supplies or a store that sells hot-tubs for that.

    Hmm. Is there any alternative to flexible tubing? I'm not married to the idea of hosing and would be fine with standard PVC pipe

    Standard (rigid) PVC pipe works great as well. You just have to be more carful to correctly cut all the pcs. I know some people who perfer regular PVC pipe.

    I have used both and both work well
