They have threaded to barbed fittings in plumbing section at lowes. The top hose is the input from the pump and the bottom two are waterfall and return to pond. The pressure was too much for the waterfall so we split the excess to go back to the pond directly. The ball valve is to let us adjust the pressure to the waterfall.
