Jim F....I have seen that in the directions myself and it is very misleading. What it should say is to use a material that is iron pipe size (IPS) which basically means schedule 40 threaded pipe. If you do not wish to solder at the very very least use galvanized pipe,but, I would STRONGLY recommend using brass. 1/2" IPS brass nipples and fittings are readily available at any hardware or big box store. DO NOT use standard black iron.
