Plumbing nomenclature can be confusing. SOC (socket) and SLIP are used interchangeably meaning that the fitting is smooth and the fitting “slips into the socket”.

SPIG (spigot) means the fitting “X” slips into a socket type “Y” fitting.

Threaded, two types used in Can/US in M (male) or F (female) PT (Pipe Thread) where it’s MTP or FTP. Other abbreviations are F/MNTP (Female/Male Nominal Pipe Thread) or F/MIPT (Female/Male Iron Pipe Thread)

The link you posted is fine, but the RSR fittings and pipe are metric. Easier to replace the OEM BH’s with standard imperial BH’s, IMHO.

If you wish to use the OEM BH’s, you will need to use threaded unions to attach to the SPIG-MPT fitting on the “nutted” half or a “Street” MPT-SLIP elbow or male adapter to get a SOC/SLIP to continue the plumbing run. Also with the link, the unions are upside down where the nut is on the bottom half. I prefer the nut on the top half so its easier to assemble, especially one handed

*NB: links are for visual example, NOT dimensional requirement for parts shopping list.

This is a riser pipe.

If you use a BH, get a SOC-FTP (threaded) type. Cut the riser pipe about 1-1/4" from the threads. The unthreaded half glue into the bulkhead half with the nut and wait about 2 mins for a good bond. Then screw into the bottom of the BH with a glob of silicone.

is there an adapter to attach Apex FMM-100 1” to Red Sea Part R42221. On the picture, currently the Red Sea part is attached to adapter 3/4” thread x 1” slip.

Is there adapter with 3/4” male threaded x 1” female threaded?

Any good plumbers here? I can’t use any elbow or other fittings as I have no more space.

If anyone has that it would be JJ downs. I'd call them tomorrow or asap before they possibly shut shop for two weeks.
