Loc Line parts

looking to adapt my fluval output to a 2 "Y"ed loc line setup. My lFS don't carry it where can I get a 1/2 adaptor that goes threw the tank and then the y and adpators? The last guy that had this tank glued all the fittings on the inside so now i have to cut it and install new.

Aquarium Supplies Water Flow Piping

found parts here but no tank fitting to get it started.

I take it you already have a drilled tank for a bulkhead... You could use a Bulkhead fitting with the correct size threads in it, then you could buy the right fittings you need from there! I have bought some lockline from MSC Industrial Supply Co.. Hope this Helps!

Wow,

Yes, thanks for the pics that is exactly what i need. I look at the local pet store buy they only have 3/4 inch pipe going threw the tank(most common). I inherited the tank plumbing when I bought it. I will pos pics tonight or what i have with the fluval.



here is a pic of what I have now its all glued and would have to be cut off. I am debating if I should use a double loc line off a Y or my buddy suggested to use a spray bar of lloc line instead of two . What do you guys think? I would love to aim one bar down and one at the surface then i might be able to get rid of the powerhead which takes up alot of room.

will the barbed end fit a fluval corrugated hose?

This is what I have right now, so yes I would need the whole thing like you show in your picture . I found out the hole is 1/2 not 3/4 this makes a huge difference.



I found this nut backed off a half turn on wed night ,it had a steady drip so the whole tank had to be lifted on 2x4's this weekend and carpet cleaned with a steam cleaner to get the water out.

I want a way to stir up the bottom layers of water, so i was thinking to aim one pipe to the bottom of the tank or across the back then aim the other one at the surface to prevent scum build up.

Hey DC,

Are those Bulkheads from MarineDepot the ones that You actually use for Your projects? If so, Any Problems with them? How well do they hold up?

Thanx!

Yes, those are the parts I used. They have held up very well. Use teflon tape on the bulkhead fitting outside of the tank. DO NOT overtighten them or they will crack. I have had no problems to date with them......DC
