BulkHeads & Sumps

Is it best to have slip or threaded Bulk heads for PVC to go into my sump? I was thinking Slip for easy of cleaning, but I am wondering now if they might leak going that way.

What do you guys suggest. This would be for where my drains go into my sump.

Thanks

I always use slip/slip. Obviously you want to use PVC primer and glue to secure it in the bottom, but I just take a piece of PVC and put it in the top of it so you can adjust your water level. I hope that makes sense.

125g semi planted. 2 silver angels, 14 silver tips, 16 white fin ornatus tetras, pair of Nicaraguense, pair of nototus severums, trio of firemouth cichlids. 2 FX5s, 1 1500gph circ pump, 2 48" LED lighs, and a HUGE piece of driftwood.

650g fish room. 15 30g tanks, 150g sump.
