Q: SunSun 602/603 owners - what hose size and ...

I'm looking to use a SunSun 602 or 603 as a pre-filter for my Eheim 2215 and before I order one I was just wondering what size hose does the SunSun inlet/outlet port accept? One site said 5/8 and another said there are 1/2 and 5/8 connectors included. It looks like the connectors thread on, so that brings up another question as to whether Eheim quick connectors would fit. Has anyone tried?

Thanks guys!

I can answer my own question now as I bought a HW-603 (non-B/no pump). The unit came with 5/8" ports and the threads on the ports are too setback from the lip to engage with the Eheim quick connector threads, so that won't work. The unit itself is just what I need for setting up a prefilter though, so that's good. I do wonder if the HW-602 comes with 1/2" ports. I might just have to buy one! lol
