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.

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

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.
