Needs NPT threading By Phil4fish on 9/10/2015

It seems these bulkheads have just straight threads instead of NPT thread. PVC and barb fitting all use NPT threads so they just don't seal well. Since there isn't much choice in bulkheads, it's the only thing out there, so you kind of have to recommend them by default. The schedule 80 bulkheads look like they'd work, but the hole size is different. If have a choice and are drilling your tank, try the schedule 80 bulkheads instead.

Good product. Just make sure you use a lot of plumbers tape.

Make sure to seal the threads on these or they will leak. I used some silicone on mine

using these components in my Aquaponics system By JAMES on 3/15/2015

I am using these components in my Aquaponics system. All working well so far.
I do wish that the clean up the extraneous plastic seams that are present on the inside and outside the threaded fittings. It means a little more effort when screwing in the fittings.
Cracked Down Seam By Matthew on 3/12/2015

Haven't really been able to use this yet but here is what I discovered. I purchase a few bulk heads in various sizes for my new acrylic tank. The holes were already drilled for the abs sized bulkheads so I didn't go SCH80 for the bulkhead.
I fitted all 4 of my bulkheads in my tank and plumbed in all of my plumbing in SCH80. The fit on the 1.5" sizes do not go in but half way on either end. The 1" sizes do fit well, or so I thought. One of my 1" sized bulkheads split down the seam and leaks. So much so I had to drain the 300 gallon tank so I could run to my LFS and get a quick replacement. Luckily they have them in stock.
Looking back on this, my next tank will be using the SCH80 bulkheads. I just don't reccomend this for someone looking to hold back a large amount of water.

Haven't tested my new bulkheads, but seem like a solid product, I have no doubt they will work well.
