Hole size

Can any one help please.


I'm having a 4ft x24 x24 and a 4ft x30 x24 tanks made for me, I need to know what size hole to have the tank drilled and what size tank connectors to fit to it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

On my 4' x 2' x 2' I have two 1" holes for the overflow and two 3/4" holes for returns.

*mistake I meant those are the line sizes. I will post hole sizes shortly.

For a 3/4" abs bulkhead hole size is 35 mm. A 1" abs bh hole size is 45mm.

For PVC 3/4" bh hole size is 45mm & for 1" bh hole size is 48 mm

Thanks for the info really appreciate it. Do you know if that would be sufficient for the 48x30x24?

Do you mean both holes should be drilled the same? I thought one was smaller than the other?

Holes should correspond to size bulkheads used. I would say the same size for both size tanks would be sufficient.

Ok cool thanks for all your help. Just one more thing, how easy is it to fit the tank connectors with the weir already in place?
