How to connect condensate pump


Hi,
I am new to this forum, but not new to rennovations. I am having a high-efficiency furnace installed and require a condensate pump. I want to connect the drain line to an existing 1-1/2' ABS drain. I am trying to avoid using any metal fittings due to the acid content in the condensate. I can't seem to find any plastic fittings to connect to a 3/8' plastic pipe. (They are brass).

I notice that the Beckett pump also has male threads. Does anyone know what size of female thread it takes? I am thinking of connecting the pump into 1/2" plastic pipe then I can use all plastic fittings into the 1-1/2 ABS.
