Product Questions

hi so if i buy this does it come with the lock nut and rubber seals, i have a overflow box but want to use these as the drains to the box will it work ?
Question by: rynhardt marais on Dec 27, 2016 10:45:00 PM
Great question! These are intended to be used with a standard bulkhead. They do not act as a bulkhead on their own. The strainers will fit into the slip or thread fitting of a bulkhead. :-)

What is the outside diameter and height (extension) from the bulk head of the 3/4" threaded style?
Question by: Gary Bury on Mar 8, 2016 6:31:00 PM
Great question!
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!

What is the Outer diameter of the strainer head for the 1.5" slip strainer?
Question by: Mellman on Mar 31, 2017 8:52:00 PM
Hey there,
The 1.5" low profile strainer will have a 3.25" diameter for the actual strainer portion.

Have a great day!

I just purchased the 1" Threaded Low Profile Strainer. I would like to know what size hole to drill in my aquarium. I assume the 1 3/4" that would be used for the 1" ABS bulkhead, but wanted to be sure.
Question by: Brian Lowery on Apr 20, 2016 2:10:00 PM
Hey there!
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"
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Apr 26, 2016 2:05:00 PM
Please help, I need to put a strainer on my Herbi overflow, I have RR 1 1/2 pvc drain and I liked the low profile strainer but I am Leary since it says it's for a bulkhead and I have a PVC pipe. Thank you
Question by: Edward Gaspar on Feb 4, 2016 3:23:00 PM
Great question!
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!

  • A great value By Dan on 9/9/2016

    I 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 5/16/2016

    I 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 7/11/2015

    This 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.
