Beefy Bulkheads By Derek on 5/2/2014Derek would recommend this product to a friendThe 1" bulkhead fits snug in the 48mm holes drilled from the diamond coated bits from BRS. Simple and very sturdy looking bulk heads. Thanks BRS as always!
High Quality - Was unable to use them By Steve on 2/20/2014Steve would recommend this product to a friendI bought a Deep Blue pre drilled 75G tank and the bulkheads that came with it were barbed and I wanted to run PVC. I ordered this and another 3/4 one thinking it would fit. I was wrong. The bulkhead itself is very thick and has a nice size gasket on it. if my tank wasn't already drilled then I would have definitely used these instead of the ABS. but as it stands I had to order the ABS ones.. which BTW were still better quality than the ones that came with the tank
Worth buying right the first time By Scott on 11/24/2013Scott would recommend this product to a friendWhen I decided to drill my tank I decided drill the bigger hole and start with the sch-80 fitting. The bulkhead feels very well made, and the gaskets sealed up water tight the first time without any effort. If you're going to the time & expense of drilling your tank you should spend a little more to get the best fitting possible.
definitely heavy duty By eric on 4/15/2013eric would recommend this product to a friendI have used the ABS bulkheads recently as well, which work fine for surface level skimming and such. If you are using bulkheads below surface level and want to be leak-free use these!
1" sch 80 bulkhead By eline on 4/15/2013eline would recommend this product to a friendUsed this in my 45 gal glass sump to supply an external pump. Having previously used the abs bulkheads I can tell you these are built way beefier.
Go for SCH 80 By Matt on 4/6/2013Matt would recommend this product to a friendI never tried the ABS bulkheads, but went with the schedule 80 ones just for overkill. My only concern was the schedule 80 bulkhead required a larger hole. However, I drilled (4) 48mm holes in my 40 gallon breeder with no issues.
High Quality By Travis on 3/15/2013Travis would recommend this product to a friendI can tell these are high quality bulkheads and am so glad I went with these over the standard ones.
Great product for the do it yourself-er. By Rick on 3/15/2013Rick would recommend this product to a friendHeavy duty product at a good price. Does what it's suppose to do. First time to drill an aquarium myself. Videos and products helped me to do the job right. What seemed to be complicated was done in about 20 min. from start to finish. Thanks BRS.
Don't even bother with cheaper ones By Jeff on 9/20/2012Jeff would recommend this product to a friendThese bulkheads are heavy duty with a huge gasket. I wouldn't even bother with the flimsy ones that seem to leak as soon as any pressure is on the bulkhead, e.g. when you use all hard pipe. The only complaint is they don't come in slip x slp.
Quality bulkhead By Eric on 9/15/2012Eric would recommend this product to a friendThese don't even compare to ABS bulkheads. Hands down better quality than normal ABS bulkheads. Only issue is they are a bit long so not ideal for back drilled tanks
excellent product By Joshua on 6/26/2012Joshua would recommend this product to a friendI really like this product, very sturdy with nice thick gasket. It is a bit bulky, but I think is going to last a long time, would definitely buy again.
These Things are Tanks By Kevin on 5/2/2012Kevin would recommend this product to a friendWhile I have not yet had the opportunity to put them to use just yet (will be soon). I can honestly say that I would expect nothing short of perfection while using them. The build quality on these things is incredible! I was not expecting them to be so sturdy feeling/just overall "tank-like." Really good product, I would use only these even though there are cheaper ones available, I just like these so much!

Hi, I purchased your 1 inch and 3/4 inch schedule 80 bulkhead fittings. I called your site and spoke to a representative and asked if I should purchase the 48 mm and 42 mm drill bits to cut my acrylic tank to fit the bulkheads. He said I should purchase the hole cutting kit to cut acrylic, which I did. My question is what hole cutter to use for these bulkheads. 48 mms = 1.89 inches and 42 mms = 1.65 inches. The kit doesn't come with those sizes. What should I do?
Bulk Reef Supply Hi David,
The holes just have to be large enough for the spindle of the bulkhead to go through, but small enough that the flange, o-ring, and nut still have something to grab onto (i.e. bigger then dimension C but smaller than dimension A). This leaves quiet a wide area to work with but best to err on the side of a smaller hole rather then a larger one. In your case with those particular bulkheads you would use a 2" and a 1.75" bit.

Do you stock slip x slip?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Glenn,
Sorry but those are unavailable in the sch80 bulkheads. We do however have them in ABS bulkheads.

I have two 1" holes drilled in an existing tank that currently fits the ABS bulkheads. My question is, can I switch to the schedule 80 bulkheads or will the holes not match up? If those bulkheads won't work, would I be able to use the schedule 80 pipe with the ABS bulkheads? Just wanted to clarify before I purchased.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Craig,
Unfortunately the holes would not match up. The sch80 bulkheads require a significantly larger hole but the sch80 pipe will work just fine with the abs bulkheads.
