    Hi All

    Need some advise. Can you guys please tell me what connector I need for my DT Conner over flow to connect the pipes to the hole in the bottom of my tank, a picture will be cool if possible and where would be the best place in CPT Northern suburbs be to buy them.
    It will have to be a 40mm fitting.

    Youll need a bulkhead fitting.

    Before you buy it, make sure it will fit the hole in your tank. Sometimes the diameter the shop quotes is the internal diameter or they dont factor in the thread.
    You can get them from various places, Effast will have and will know what you talking about. Some of the larger hardware shops alsop stock them.

    ok cool, thanks for the advice, If I remember correctly the lfs where I had bought the tank said the hole is 45mm I need a 40mm connector but will double check this before I buy.
