Sorry I didn't update the thread. I actually forgot about it. Yes, it does work. I was able to make the straight fitting work. I didn't buy the 45 degree fitting like salt did.
I have a little bit leaking at the fitting by the pump....between the blue fitting and the 90 degree fitting. But its barely noticeable. I will probably take it apart and use some teflon tape to try and seal it up. But other than that, it works great.
