Fits perfectly and helps keep snails fish and such out
Description and Q/A Misleading By Russ K. on 7/1/2015
Russ K. would recommend this product to a friend
The description only states "Slip" and a "Q/A" which specifically asks if a 3/4" strainer will fit over 3/4" pipe without an adapter was answered yes. However, the "slip" is actually spigot. Which means you can't connect it directly to pipe. The 3/4" strainer is the same size as 3/4" pipe, so it needs a coupler or other adapter. Disappointed in the misleading information.
Nice, wish iut was what I needed By fyngyrz on 6/9/2015

What I actually needed -- and what I suspect others would need as well -- was a barb-to-strainer, not a slip-to-strainer. Slip to strainer just meant adapters, less easy to handle, etc. Annoying.
And they do make them. be nice if BRS carried them.
The part itself was perfectly fine, if that's what you need, for instance if you're going into a bulkhead slip fitting instead of 1/2" hose...
Still, mad credit to the guys for getting me going, wrong fitting or not. They know *exactly* what they are doing here. Great place to do this kind of business.

With a little force, which i was never worried would damage the thick plastic, the 3/4" version fit into my 1" schedule 40 drain line.
Good quality, great price By Sean on 3/4/2015

I bought this as a strainer/snail guard for my overflow. I don't have an overflow box, instead I just used a sched 40 elbow with the 1" ABS bulkhead. It does restrict the flow quite a bit, but it was easy to cut out a couple of ribs to adjust the flow.

I bought this strainer to protect my pump. This strainer is made out of a heavy plastic and fit the threads on my bulkhead nicely.

Would have liked a slip bulkhead for 1.5 inch though
Great Strainer By Steven on 3/2/2014
Steven would recommend this product to a friend
Great strainer for the price, and look a lot better than the long ones you will find at a local LFS. I would recommend getting a threaded strainer do to the fact that you can take it off for cleaning. It will decrease your flow a bit so make sure to plan for that. Only thing bad about it is that the slip strainers seem to be a bit of a tight fit for the pipes. The slip also fits inside of the pipe that it mentions for, so a 3/4 fits inside a 3/4 pipe.
Great Strainer But May Reduce Flow By Brandon on 1/30/2014
Brandon would recommend this product to a friend
This is a great little strainer for the money. I ordered the 1" version thinking it would fit my 1" sch 80 piping but I was wrong...I had to reorder the 3/4" fitting...this fitting is being used on a Herbie Style overflow (though you could use a coupler to make it work).
Awesome product, but handle with care By Harry on 12/9/2013

Great product. Does what it is supposed to. Handle with care though as I had to reorder the 1.5 inch one as it broke while handling the strainer part. Use the base at all times while threading it in!
Heavy Duty By WoodShop on 9/4/2013

First thought when i opened the USPS package.
"These aren't thin little cheep things"
"I hope they fit"
1st one fit fine, 2nd one i had to cut up a bit to make work.
No fault of the product, they were just too tall to fit into the space.
Dimensions on the site would have been nice.
But for so cheep, eh, who cares if it ends up not fitting.

Does the job and well made. I can't find these strainers at my local hardware store and I'm glad BRS sells it.
Does what its suppose to, as long as you do By GraysonReef on 6/14/2013

I am running a 65g with 20g sump. 9.5 mag pump with 3/4 piping. I just started this hobby 3 weeks ago and took the plunge into building a reef tank. (total rookie)
These work as exactly as described, however, they do restrict waterflow. With that being said, it might be a good idea to upsize your drains if you are running a larger pump.
Quality is great and made of thick plastic. I tried cutting a few ribs off and had to get a good pair of pliers to do so.
Better than DIY By Starrme on 4/29/2013

I like the look and I am happier with these than with my DIY netting/strainer, especially for the price. I do wish there was a 1.5" slip strainer available.

So I am using these as a strainer for my dorso drain piping. It will secure the pipe from letting any of my critters going down the pipe.
Really Nice By Kevin on 5/2/2012

Honestly there isn't much to say about a plastic piece that is a couple of dollars; but I will say that I am pleasantly surprised with how sturdy it is and how it feels like it is made quite well; it isn't a cheap product because it is cheaply made. If you are looking for a strainer, I would certainly recommend this one to anyone.
heavy duty strainers By Corbin on 3/29/2012

Strainers are a must have in any tank that has living thing which move. These are excellent units and if you slip a block of foam over them they are perfect for a nursery tank. Placing anything in the way of water flow will slow it down, so make sure you've properly over-sized your drains.
hard to beat the price of this high quality strainer By Aaron on 3/8/2012

I searched the internet looking for strainers. I ended up buying the 1" bulkhead slip strainers and they are very heavy duty. No cheap plastic here. I'm sure it will last for many years
Had to modify but it works By Bob on 7/8/2011
Bob would recommend this product to a friend
The strainers reduced the flow in my 180 too much. I had to cut a few ribs off to increase the flow without making the opening big enough for snails to get in. Works great though. Snails crawl all over it but can't get into the drain.
