I have had the same issues and found a combination solution.
Using both the std 4” hose fittings and the 4” white sewer pipe fittings together with a liberal
amount of an inexpensive hardening caulk has done the job. Fitting the two systems together
takes some trial and error but if you can get them close, the caulking makes
the fit. The key is to find fittings from both systems that will fit into each other loosely.
Once assembled, caulked and cured you have what you need to join the two types of pipe.
I have used this successfully for my whole shop.

Hope this is of help. Cheers!
