      Bulkhead install on aboveground

      Got the tank in and need to get the 4 inch bulkhead in. What is the best way to install this? Dont use the gasket and pl inside and outside and tighten.

      For 4 inch and flexable liner no bulkheads should be used. Use a flanged connector suitable for thin non-supported liner. Use a Koitoilet 4 inch or have Zac make you something with a wide flange suitable for flexable liner. Dreampond makes 1.5 to 3 inch ones.

      Or buildup a deck and pipe everything through the bottom with a 4” BD but that is some serious works

      I'm kinda in a pinch for time. Do you think house toilet flanges and use pl adhesive would be ok? It is going to be in my garage so I dont want leaks

      Well I was in a pinch and used the bulkhead and gasket with no sealant. So far so good and had to transfer over the rdf and shower as well as 14 koi. Was a 2 day task after I got home from work..fish went a day with no filtration at all but i kept the shower going on the old pond and transferred media today. The shower quickly removed the ammonia in the pond that was treated with safe. I didnt test but I know there was ammonia present when the filter was off.
