  • 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.

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.

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.

  • 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.
  • Great Product By Matthew on 1/27/2015

    These bulkheads seem very sturdy yet still maintain a low profile in the tank. Thumbs Up!
  • No leaks, great solid quality By Brian on 1/23/2015

    This is one of those thing you just expect to work. I could tell this was a really high-quality product when it showed up. I only hand tightened it and was quite surprised to find that I had zero drips...I had barely tightened it! I had no issues gluing in my pvc, although I've since heard you should not use primer with abs plastic. I have not researched this myself.
  • Good bulkhead By Daniel on 10/16/2014

    Nothing 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
