Tank Filter Fittings

Does anyone have a source for the end fittings on a holding tank filter?
It's a 5/8" hose barb to 3/4 ' swivel female NPT (hose).
US Plastics has them for 81 cents but $13 shipping. May have to go that route.
Someone at Amazon really screwed up. Their same fitting is listed for $34...!!

Re: Tank Filter Fittings

Increasing the ventilation to your tank by replacing the "vent" thru-hull with an open bulkhead or "mushroom" thru-hull and using a tank product that actually works (No-Flex Digestor Noflex Digestor has proven to be the best one) eliminates the need for a filter.

Re: Tank Filter Fittings

Found them. Part is reasonable, shipping is steep.
