If the inlet/outlet are female with threads inside, use a male PVC adapter. Screw it in tight using teflon tape or pipe dope compound and then glue the pipes into the adapters with the proper primer and glue. Good luck.
Note: Female PVC adapters have more of a problem with breaking than the male adapters.
