Hey guys I need your help,

So I am looking to set up a frag tank next to my display tank and can’t seem to find a plumbing kit for it. I was hoping to find bulkheads for (return, intake and emergency overflow) as well as the mouth for “power head” for the return. Lastly tubing that will fit all of these plumbing parts.

I know an easy way around this is to just throw a canister filter on the system instead of a sump but I really want to do it the right way!

hope you guys can help me out.
Thanks so much

BRS should have all the plumbing parts you need. I doubt you will find a "kit" for the plumbing so you will have to order each piece individually.

I tried looking on the site but didn’t want to buy things that wouldn’t fit together if you know what I mean.

thanks for the reply !

Do you want to plumb it the same as in the video?

If so here is a list of parts I see in the video that you would need:

1" PVC Pipe
3 - 1" Threaded bulkheads
6 - 1" male threaded to slip pvc fittings
2 - 1" threaded / slip 90's
1 - 1" threaded strainer
1 - 1" slip/slip gate valve
1 - 1" threaded locline (Your choice of fittings after)
1 - 1" threaded to barb fitting (Barb size we depend on the size of flex coming from your pump)

They used SCH80 pipe and fittings but you could use SCH40 if you want and it would save some money.
