Awesome By Jeremy on 10/23/12Jeremy would recommend this product to a friendThese came in and they are just what I needed. Seem to be durable and it's always great being able to get them on BRS.
Excellent bulkheads By Lance on 9/26/12Lance would recommend this product to a friendI purchased two of these 1" bulkheads for my custom overflow for my 40B mixed reef display w/ 40B sump (one as the main, the other for emergency drain).
As of approximately one week from now, these will have been in constant use for two years, removed once for a tank breakdown and move.
Never leaked, easy to use, easy to remove, great fittings. No problems.

Great bulheads By Ron on 9/5/12Ron would recommend this product to a friendWell- built, one of mine had some minor imperfections on the threads but did not effect performance. These are great bulkheads and would definitely use them again.
Great Product By Joseph on 8/3/12Joseph would recommend this product to a friendIt does what it needs to do without leaking. I would recommend
Great product By Ljfdfireboy on 7/23/12Ljfdfireboy would recommend this product to a friendVery well constructed heavy duty bulkhead.
Decent product By Joshua on 6/26/12Joshua would recommend this product to a friendOverall I think this is a good product, does seem a bit sturdier than the older bulkhead that came with my previously owned tank. However, the fit between the female threaded bulkhead and the male threaded PVC adapter was not very sound. I had to use about 12 wraps of teflon tape to make a good seal. Not sure if this is an issue with the bulkhead or PVC adapter--but watch for leaks! I would buy this product again.

When installing bulkheads which side goes in the tank and which goes outside tank for the drain. Also do I use a different bit to drill 3/4" acrylic vs glass.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Don,
The flange side (side with the big head on it) part of the bulkhead goes on the inside along with the o-ring. The nut then secures the bulkhead on the outside of the tank. Depending on the material you would use different drill bits. Glass requires a diamond coated drill bit and acrylic a hole saw blade.

Hi, i bought two 1" slip x thread and two 3/4" slip x thread bulkheads and can't seem to get a female adapter to screw onto the bulkhead. What can i use?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Tim,
The plumbing threads on the bulkhead are female, so you would need a male threaded pipe fitting to screw into the threaded bulkheads and then it should work a lot better for you!

On the slip x thread bulkhead is that threaded on the inside of the tank?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Roger,
It is best to have the flange side on the inside of the tank, so on this particular bulkhead the thread would be on the outside of the tank. For threads on the inside you would want a Thread x Slip.
Bulkheads are used to attach plumbing to aquariums and sumps. 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.
