If you are using two of these fittings on a pump, do not forget to fit a strainer on the inlet side of the pump. This will provide your pump with protection from debris getting into it and causing it damage.
Do I need to use PTFE tape on the 3/8" NPT Male thread? As this is a taper thread it should not be necessary for you to use PTFE tape to prevent water leaking. However, if you find that it does leak, then it will be worth you using some PTFE tape to prevent water leaks.
Do I need any type of hose clip on the hose tail end of the fitting? You are probably best to use either a Jubilee clip or something similar to prevent the hose blowing off or leaking. It can help, if you warm the end of the hose in hot water for a minute before fitting the hose. Don't forget the hose clip!
What pressure can I use these fittings at? You can safely use them at 100psi as they are often fitted to water pumps that operate at 100psi.
