Quick plumbing ?

So, got my tank drilled and appropriate fittings for overflow and returns done last week. Now I'm at home depot to get tubing, pipe, etc, etc. Well I'm told these regular PVC pipe threads won't fit on my overflow or return threads, looks like there's more threads on the black ones vs standard PVC. Anyone have any idea where I can get the right plumbing for this, retail locations preferably? Pic attached is the 1" return line...

Standard plumping (white stuff) from Home depot will fit, be sure using silicon tape when connecting them together.

 

You could look some online retail store like Marine depot

Yeah, I just left home depot. Standard doesn't fit. The threads on what I have are a lot tighter than standard PVC.

Ok, so I figured it out. I'm supposed to use the threads on the inside of the bulkhead/return fittings. Duh
