I think my pump has 3/4 outlet/inlet. It's a hot water booster pump, so not magnetically driven like march pumps. Has pretty crazy flow of 20Lpm.
There's a local supplier than can do 19mm (3/4") stainless cam locks for pretty cheap - but that's as small as they go. I guess it also depends on how easy I can get my hands on 3/4 solenoid/ball valves too!.
I've just checked prices compared to Brewers Hardware and they're actually pretty pricey! The NZ supplier wants basically $14 per male or female 3/4" fitting.The march is about 27lpm and most are running on 1/2". You can get 304 stainless 3/4" valves on ebay, about $13 for a 2 piece, or $20 for a 3 piece (posted prices)
How much for the 3/4" camlocks?

Those valves on ebay - they're manual I assume? I'm using an opentroller/brewtroller system - which will mean the valves are needed to be electronic.
Yeah there seems to be a bunch for around the $20USD mark - which is a pretty good price - as long as they can give a good rate for shipping!Check on ebay for the electronic ones too, they are under $30 (posted) for either 240VAC or 24VDC
Yep, I've been running [silicon] hose on hose barbs without any form of hose clamps for years and never had one even close to slipping.What I have found is where I push the silicone hose onto the camlock hose tails I find I don't need hoseclamps.
