Response to Hi Amy, The ports on this pump has both internal and external threads. Normally customers will use the included hose adapters to screw into the pump ports and then slide the hose over the hose adapter and secure the hose to the hose adapter with the included hose clamp. If you run into any issues with the installation then please post photos back to this thread.
