What you spraying?
Yearly spraying of Roundup.
What are those disconnects?
What I have are called a "Gator Lock Quick Coupler" from Tractor Supply. Was going to buy Banjo but their brand doesn't lock and I've heard stories where people lost some spray when they came unlatched by accident.

I made the connections different on the pump ports. Female on one side, male on the other. It's goof proof so that I don't connect the hoses on the wrong sides. :-)
The quick connects make it easy to drain and remove pump from tractor for storage if need be. Manual says to fill with 50/50 antifreeze for lubrication. On the old pump, I just drained and added some motor oil. It worked for 20 years that way.
