The OD of the strainer will be around 1" and will fit directly into a 3/4" bulkhead or 3/4" adapter. The stem is 1" just long enough to insert into the bulkhead. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Thanks for getting in touch with us in regards to diameter size on the low profile strainers. I would be more then happy to assist you with this, but I will need to know which size strainer is in question. If you could get back to me with that I can find you an answer right away. Look forward to hearing back from you!
The 1.5" low profile strainer will have a 3.25" diameter for the actual strainer portion.
Have a great day!
Tough question as the Low Profile overflow strained is intended to be glued or threaded into a bulkhead and not used by itself to be the only item going through the glass. If used in conjunction with a 1" bulkhead the hole size will be 45mm or 1.65"
This strainer will slip into a bulkhead just like a piece of pipe. This means if you want to connect this strainer to a pipe you will need a slip x slip coupler. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Low profile strainer that extends fractions of an inch past the bulkhead itself. Prevents fish, snails, and other tank inhabitants from getting sucked into your plumbing, sump or pump and subsequent damage.
- Slip Low Profile Strainer - Used to slip inside of a slip bulkhead
- Thread Low Profile Strainer - Threads into an internally threaded bulkhead
A great value By Dan on 9/9/2016Dan would recommend this product to a friendI ordered the 1" threaded strainer and it fits great and I was really impressed with the quality look and feel of this strainer.
Does not fit By Timothy on 5/16/2016Timothy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI ordered the 2" slip strainer and a 2" slip bulkhead. The strainer is too loose to stay in the bulkhead.
Great strainer By JT on 7/11/2015JT would recommend this product to a friendThis strainer is really slim, only sticking out about 3/16" past the bulkhead. It's got plenty of area for water to enter, my initial concern was that it might not have enough surface area and could become easily clogged, but after installing I feel it's going to be very reliable.
