I pruchased this bulkhead, and it turns out it is too big. Does anyone know where I can find one that has threading like this one on the inside, but is smaller on the outside. I need it to be an inch or less not 1 and 1/8. The 1/2 threading is what I need the other 1 and 1/8 is too big. https://www.saltwateraquarium.com/schedule-40-bulkhead-1-2-thread-x-thread-black-hole-size-1-1-8/
If you want to try Zoro Plumbing, online. My system game with schedule 20 ABS pipe. The filter pipe add a ball valve which could not be precisely controlled. I called Zoro Plumbing online and they put me thru to the guy on the floor that sends pipe out parts. He helped me get a schedule 80 gate valve that was a mere 64th of an inch larger in diameter. So I packed it around with aquarium epoxy. Worked out perfectly

How about trying to get a bulkhead that fits with slip connections and then just glue in the threads you need with pvc fittings

Any chance you could link me what you think I would need, I am not that good at plumbing stuff. I can get the right sizes just need to see what pieces.

Check this out slip on both sides and get the size you need 1/2,3/4,or 1 inch

I need a 1/2 inch thread just like the one I linked, but the problem is the 1 and 1/8 outside threading wont fit through the hole.
