When you have a complex aquarium
, or a network of several aquariums, you will find it more convenient to move on from using a hose to transport water to utilizing pipe connections for faster water transfers. Sometimes, you need to connect directly to a pipe, or to connect several pipes together to make water transfer more convenient. Whatever your reason may be, you will need to connect separate units together, and so you must make sure that none of the connections have leaks anywhere.
A simple but very effective way of keeping pipe connections secure is by using a Double-Threaded Bulkhead Fitting from Pet Store
. This device is small -- only an inch big -- but it does a hard job efficiently, which is connecting pipes securely. This fitting, when securely in place, keeps the water flow from one pipe to another constant by not just closing all gaps, but by also providing the same pressure. Thus, water can travel from pipe to pipe as if it were traveling down just one long pipe.
The Double-Threaded Bulkhead Fitting does not rust or corrode because it is not made of steel, but of polyethylene material. Either one of the ends -- back and front -- can be used, at once or at the same time.
Hole Size: 1 3/4"
This bulkhead is threaded both the front and back. A MPT threaded fitting can be screwed in to either end of the bulkhead.
