Product Questions

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?

Thanks,
David
Question by: David Lewis on Apr 7, 2014 1:41:00 PM
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.

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.
Question by: Craig on Dec 4, 2013 4:29:00 AM
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.

What spigot or fitting goes on the threaded side of the bulk head to connect to slip pvc? Thanks
Question by: Roy on Jun 2, 2017 9:17:00 AM
All bulkheads use NPT ID threads. For connection to pvc, you'll want a male pipe adapter of the appropriate size. For instance, on a 1" bulkhead from our website, connecting to 1" pvc pipe, you'll use a 1" male pipe adapter. All of our fittings are nominally rated for the PVC ID to avoid confusion.

Hope this helps!

Currently, I just got done finishing up my saltwater mixing station and I used the Uniseals for my 35-gallon Brute food grade garbage cans and my Uniselas are leaking. If I was to add two 1'' Bulkhead Schedule 80 Slip x Thread would it work out better? Or since the bulkheads are going to be at the bottom of each Brute can would that be a problem... Let me know your thoughts when you get this?
Many thanks,
Matt Paul
Question by: Matt Paul on Jun 3, 2017 9:24:00 AM
Unfortunately bulkheads are really only meant to seal well against flat surfaces, and due to the curved profile of the cans, these can be a problem. If you are getting leaks around the uniseals, I would ensure that you are getting a snug fit, as they do depend upon this pressure to get a good seal, and you may also want to look at putting some aquarium safe silicone or grease around the insertion point to improve the seal between the two materials.

Happy reefing!

Do you stock slip x slip?
Question by: Glenn Janke on Sep 19, 2013 7:16:00 AM
Hey Glenn,
Sorry but those are unavailable in the sch80 bulkheads. We do however have them in ABS bulkheads.

When measuring for bulkheads, you will need a hole in your tank that is slightly larger (1-3mm) than the "C" measurement for the corresponding bulkhead but no larger than the "A" measurement.

 

Example: If you have a 1.75" diameter hole currently in your tank, then you would want to use the 3/4" Sch 80 Bulkhead.

  • Trust By Jason on 6/12/2017

    When you have a need for a bulkhead you're putting a lot of trust in that piece of plastic. It's worth it when hundreds of gallons of water behind that piece of plastic to get the schedule 80 bulkheads IMO. This are big, strong and built to last. Keep in mind the hole sizes are different so if you're custom building something or using an existing setup the holes need to be increased.
  • Good grip. By Garnett on 3/3/2017

    I have a tank with standard square bulkhead and I had to burn it off. With these bulkhead it's easy to grip and turn. Easily to put on or take off...they're thick and really durable.
  • Good quality product. By Christopher on 9/8/2016

    This is a heavy duty bulkhead that makes you feel secure that if the return plumbing gets banged or torqued-on it will not crack. Some ABS bulkheads are cheaply made and can crack or otherwise fail.
  • Bulkhead By Gustavo on 6/28/2016

    Awesome product.
  • Great Product By Desertdawg on 3/23/2016

    Replaced the regular bulkheads with sch80. I wish I had used these the first time.
  • Piece of Mind By Nickolas on 2/11/2016

    I started ordering sch 80 bulkheads after cracking a few cheap ABS plastic ones. I will never use anything but sch 80now. These things are extremely durable.
  • Works well, By STarFishMan on 4/2/2015

    These are very nice and the gasket is beefy. Great although I was hoping for the slip end on the tank side rather than threaded. Maybe I missed that. Outside of this they are really nice and the price is right.
  • Excellent By Jose on 1/19/2015

    Very well made heavy duty
  • Excellent By Jose on 1/19/2015

    Very well made heavy duty
  • great product By dpoz on 12/3/2014

    Have been using BRS plumbing for all my builds there great.
  • Beefy Bulkheads By Derek on 5/2/2014

    The 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 2/20/2014

    I 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
