    drilling bulkheads

    I got my bulkheads...gonna use one 2" for over flow and two 1" for the returns on opposite sides of the tank. but my question is...
    how much bogger than the threaded part of the bulkhead do I make the hole? slightly bigger? or a 1/4 inch bigger? or bigger than that =)

    thanks

    For a 2" bulkhead you need a 3" hole; a 1" bulkhead needs a 1.75" hole.
