Good bulkhead By Daniel on 10/16/2014Daniel would recommend this product to a friendNothing crazy about this bulkhead.
A tip...a slip connection, if clued, will make it essentially impossible to replace this bulkhead without cutting it apart...you won't be able to pull it through the wall of the tank with your 1 inch elbow on it now will you...so thread may work better in that regard
Good deal By Orlando on 9/17/2014Orlando would recommend this product to a friendInstalled this on a rimless 50 gal cube. Hand tight no leaks and good bonding.
Great Product By Jacob on 6/11/2014Jacob would recommend this product to a friendGreat product with the lowest prices on the web. They worked great and I haven't had any problems or leaking; however, I do wish they were lower profile in order to cut back on the amount of space needed behind the tank.
What you would expect By Ben on 4/22/2014Ben would recommend this product to a friendIts a functional bulk head, decent price, decent shipping time. What else do you want?

Easy to install By Bryan on 2/3/2014Bryan would recommend this product to a friendInstall 1.5" bulkheads on an acrylic tank. I used a 2.5" hole saw bit and they fit perfect.
Good price and product. By nickandy on 1/30/2014nickandy would recommend this product to a friendWhat you see is what you get. Good product at a good price.
Reason for 4/5 is because I wasn't too happy with the gaskets. I'll give them a shot.
Great When Space Is Of Concern By Brandon on 1/30/2014Brandon would recommend this product to a friendYou can either go with Sch 80 bulkheads or ABS bulkheads, I went with these as they have a smaller footprint than the sch 80 bulkheads. They work just as well and fit with sch 80 piping (my entire system is sch 80 but the bulkheads).
Worked Great By John on 12/28/2013John would recommend this product to a friendI used these in my reef ready Aqueon tank and they fit perfectly.
it works By Denton on 12/25/2013Denton would recommend this product to a friendAs a new reefer I hope these things hold up. I don't have much experience.

Which bulkheads will i need ? Im doin 1"pvc in overflow and 3/4" pvs from pump. Which bulkheads will fit these pvc sizes?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Dan,
If you have a 1" PVC pipe you would want the 1" bulkhead for that pipe and 3/4" bulkhead for 3/4" pvc.

I just bought some bulkheads.
1) 1 1/2" ABS Bulkhead Slip X Slip Dimensions
2) 2" ABS Bulkhead Slip X Slip Dimensions
I need to drill holes for these bulkheads. There are A, B, C hole sizes. Which one do I use for acrylic? These hole saws are all a little different and I want to make sure I choose the right hole saw.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Tanner,
The ABC are dimensions, not hole sizes :) Dimension C is the size of the part that goes through the tank so you need to make sure the hole is that big, but not larger then A or B which is the size of the head and the nut. Generally speaking you want to go with the closest size drill bit to dimension C that is at-least the size of dimension C.

Will a 1/2 inch PVC pipe fit in the inside diameter of the 1/2 bulkhead? Or is the inside diameter of the 1/2 in bulkhead exactly 1/2 inch? If that is the case will a 1/2 inch PVC inside connector fit in this bulkhead? Thanks
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Jimmy,
All the plumbing sizes are nominal, so a 1/2" PVC pipe will fit in a 1/2" ABS bulkhead no problem.
Bulkheads are used to attach plumbing to aquariums and sumps through glass and acrylic. These low profile reef safe bulkheads are made from black ABS plastic. Our supplier manufactures these slightly thicker than competitor aquarium bulkheads making them more reliable.
