I'm installing a beananimal overflow on an undrilled tank and I bought 1inch bulkheads. The holes are not pierced yet. I was looking for the rest of the plumbing and I'm having great troubles to find the parts that can fit in a 1inch threaded bulkhead. I figured I would have to use 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 ABS for the rest of the plumbing, but how can I connect the plumbing to the 1 inch bulkhead?? I'm wondering if I shouldn't buy a regular 1 1/2 inch bulkhead so it fits with standard piping...
It doesn't have to be ABS, it's just that locally, I can only get ABS pipe and fittings in 1 1/2 inch. CPVC stops at 1 inch (and the 1 inch fittings are really difficult to get) and PVC is even harder.
Finally, I almost ordered everything online before finding a plumber who was willing to sell me the fittings by the piece (all the others would sell in bulk, as if I was building a house...). I ordered only the ball valves online, as they were far cheaper than locally. For the rest, I bought a mix of ABS and PVC fittings and pipes and I used a glue that is designed to weld PVC to ABS. Some pieces are in polypropylène, namely all the 1 inch male threaded fittings. Retrospectively, I should have ordered everything online instead of trying to find the pieces locally, it would have been much easier to source everything, but I believe in buying local whenever I can.
man you must live in some small town in the middle of nowhere, I can walk into any one of the 4 hardware stores into town here and get everything from 1/2" all the way to 6" in PVC with no problem, even Walmart or Canadian Tire carries it in most common used sizes.
