Do you have one bulkhead or two?

If it's two, one bulkhead is probably 1" or 1.5" and the other is 1/2". the smaller is for the return the larger is for drain.

There is two holes but only one bulkhead with the overflow system installed. The other hole is just a hole...

I'm having a difficult time picturing what you're talking about, perhaps because it's late. Happen to have a photo?

The other hole is smaller than the one with the bulkhead right? so it is probably for a 1/2" bulkhead.
