  • Aquarium Bulkheads

Quick Overview

Bulkheads are used to attach plumbing to aquariums and sumps to allow water to flow though them. 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.


Bulkheads come in different sizes and either with or without threads for plumbing to connect to. With threaded bulkheads you will need to use a male pipe thread to screw into the bulkhead to make a connection. Slip fittings will require solvent to bond the bulkhead to the plumbing permanently.

Hello
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.

Thank you!
Question by: Tanner on Apr 23, 2014 4:28:00 AM
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.

Do these bulkheads come with the required wrench? If not, where can I purchase one?
Question by: alex razo on Jul 3, 2016 5:46:00 PM
No,
There is no need for a wrench with a bulkhead. it can be hand tightened and with standard channel locks or other tools tightened down further.

What is your recommended "reef safe" solvent to join PVC pipe to ABS slip bulkheads?
Question by: Ken Smolana on Apr 3, 2016 4:56:00 PM
Great question!
You will use PVC to ABS transition cement. Currently one option from many hardware stores is Oatey Green. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Do these bulkheads include the rubber gaskets as well?
Question by: John on Jul 7, 2016 8:53:00 PM
Hi John,
All of the ABS Bulkheads come with a gasket to create a leak free seal.
If you have any other questions just let us know.

I have a 75 gallon tank that's going to have a 660GPH return pump and RSS18 large overflow box. How do I determine what size plumping is appropriate? I plan on having a main overflow and an emergency overflow.
Question by: Mel on May 31, 2016 8:39:00 AM
Great question!
With a return pump of 660 GPH we recommend using 1 inch drain lines. This means 1" bulkhead and 1" pipe will be a great fit! The 1" has a gravity fed flow up to 650 GPH and by the time your return pump pushes up the head height the flow into your tank will be well under 600. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jun 8, 2016 12:19:00 PM
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
Question by: jimmy on Jul 9, 2014 8:12:00 PM
Hi Jimmy,
All the plumbing sizes are nominal, so a 1/2" PVC pipe will fit in a 1/2" ABS bulkhead no problem.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jul 9, 2014 8:12:00 PM
Which bulkheads will i need ? Im doin 1"pvc in overflow and 3/4" pvs from pump. Which bulkheads will fit these pvc sizes?
Question by: dan on Jul 31, 2014 5:44:00 PM
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.

  • Great Bulkheads By Batfish Aquatics on 7/14/2016

    With close to 400 tanks, we use a lot of bulkheads in the shop... especially since we're always tinkering with stuff. I've bought lots of different types, some cheaper than this... and I've replaced lots and lots of cheap ones. The cheapies start leaking, they just plain break, ugh. These ones from BRS are sturdy and durable, go on easily without any cross threading or other issues, and stay put, tightly. Well worth it!
  • Super Duper By T-Bone on 5/6/2016

    Perfect fit form and function. The fish said it's not leaking so were good.
  • Works as intended By James on 2/21/2016

    Works exactly as you would expect a bulkhead to work. The only complaint i have is more against BRS than the product. The drill hole and the bulkhead both list different recommended sizes for each other so that was a little confusing.
  • Looks good! By Jessica on 12/28/2015

    I haven't installed this bulkhead yet since there was a delay on my sump, but the quality looks to be as good or better than most that I have seen. I would purchase again.
  • Great Product By MaroonMan on 11/9/2015

    Good quality bulkhead. Have purchased several and all have worked well
  • Great Product By Alphaeus on 10/19/2015

    Installed them on my sump, fits perfect, and does the job it was intended to do. Great Product!
  • Great Product By Steve D on 8/13/2015

    This was a great. Fit perfect and sealed with no problems!
  • not happy By Steve on 7/15/2015

    very thin top half, sent them back
  • Poor PVC Fit By tbrehm on 3/16/2015

    Purchased 2 BRS 1" bulkheads from online and a local supplier and both have extra material on the inside of the bulkheads that does not allow pvc to fit. I suspect there is a problem with the supplier's molding process. Can be taken care by sanding the inside of the bulkhead.
  • Works great By April on 3/11/2015

    This is sturdy and exactly as described. I'm please with my purchase.
  • Works great, seals tight, no leaks By Sean on 3/4/2015

    I installed this on my 28 Gal bow front with just a 1" elbow for the overflow. I used the 45mm hole saw as recommended by BRS. The two go perfectly together.
  • 1" abs By Michael on 2/9/2015

    Works great. And fitted like a glove.
