View Full Version : Connecting PVC to bulkheads

11/13/2007, 10:18 PM
What is the proper way to connect my drain/return overflow bulkheads to my sump's PVC plumbing? It looks like I'll need to slip 1" PVC into the bulkhead and cement it in place.....but if I ever need to dismantle/sell the tank, how do I remove the bulkheads from the tank?

Is it meant to be a permanent connection @ the bulkhead/PVC connection?

I realize I can use unions elsewhere to dismantle the plumbing, but will I need to permanently glue the PVC into the bulkhead?

I'm confused.

You have to use glue unless you got threaded bulkhead adapters. The you could use a threaded adapter and take your plumbing apart easier that way. Hope this helps
