The SHURflo On-Demand Diaphragm Pump has 1/2" fittings, and would not be compatible with a standard garden hose(3/4") which would lower the flow rate. When the flow rate is low the pump may re-pressurize the outlet faster than the fluid is being released causing rapid cycling, where damage may occur.

Actually, standard garden hose is only 5/8" inner diameter, not 3/4". The fittings are 3/4", but you can get 1/2" to 3/4" garden hose adapters at any of the big box stores or plumbing stores (I checked, Northern Tool doesn't have them). You can also purchase 1/2" garden hose, but you'll still need the adapters because the fittings are still 3/4". This is what I did with my pump.
