Four of these were purchased for an Aqueon 210 glass aquarium with built-in overflows. The predrilled hole size in the glass is 1 3/4" (1.75). These bulkheads were chosen because they have internal threads versus the slip fitting option. This will allow for disassembly later on instead of using solvent to join the pieces which becomes a permanent bond. Three bulkheads are being used as drains and the fourth is being used for return. The return line is the only one currently with anything threaded into the flange side of the piece.
Care must be used when tightening the mating pieces to the internal threads of the bottom, tightening of the internal thread will want to unscrew the thread of the nut against the bulkhead. For my application, once the aquarium was on the stand, the access to the nut was so restricted I could only get a finger tight seal. (In hindsight, a 3" hole saw was used for the stand, and a 4" hole saw would have cost a bit more but alleviated frustration.) I used Banjo NIP100-4 Polypropylene Pipe Fitting, Nipple, Schedule 80, 1" NPT Male x 4" Length (4" extensions) downstream of the bulkhead before installing a ball valve similar to ...Read more ›

for an aquarium bulkhead, they have been leakproof for a few months now.
I would suspect that as soon as the weather warms up, the leaking will stop, but this is very disappointing and will take a LOT of work on my part to replace these as they are a different diameter than those I usually use, and I'll have to replace both barrels and all the connecting PVC I use in my rain barrel systems. Luckily for me I have flow control valves between each barrel so I'll only loose about 50 gallons of rain water when I replace them - but I'm still out the cost of two barrels, two bulk heads and all the connector pieces.
Don't buy these unless you can keep your temps above 45 degrees.
