When setting up water pumps for your fish tank
, you would obviously want one that fits perfectly. You need a bulkhead that can be easily installed but at the same time, remains intact and non-slip. Standard Threaded Bulkhead Fitting from Pet Store
can be threaded on both ends on the outside as well as on the inside of the front end. Outside on the back end is a slip fitting. This design provides a secure fit that will not easily collapse when pressure from the raging water increases.
A 1-inch bulkhead has a hole diameter of about one and three-fourths inch. This can safely attach to PVC pipes and tubings commercially available in local hardware stores. Because of the snug fit, sealing of the attached tubing will only need a couple rounds of Teflon tape. Standard Threaded Bulkhead Fitting is commonly made of PVC which relatively resists wear and tear, and has high durability. It is molded so it is also impact resistant.
Some reliable brands that offer this bulkhead include Doctors Foster and Smith. Their bulkhead is easy to use and can be installed even without professional help. Water is an obvious necessity when it comes to aquariums, and because these bulkheads perform superbly, leaks and spillage can be controlled, which eventually saves you a lot of cash!
Hole Size: 1 3/4"
This bulkhead is threaded on the side that is flanged (where you screw in a strainer) and slip on the back side (where you can glue in a PVC pipe).
