the tank has 1/2" female threads and the qest grey pluming fittings are threaded also- they have a hard compresion cone as a sealing washer.
you need a LOT of teflon tape on a grey plastic male thread
(going into the alum water heater) as it is not a true tapered pipe thread, none needed on the side with cone washers.
