This is the piece of reef bone I'm going to have at the top of the scape. Nice piece with four branches.
dogs paying more interest than swmbo lol
The 32mm ball valves from lbs are 32mm inside diameter, where as I was hoping they where like the bends for example which are bigger so the pipe will slot in them
Thought as much. I have had this problem before.
Half tempted to hard pipe it into the cabinet the go to hose with taps?
bummer Thats why i bought all fittings and pipe work from them so it all matched
Might have to end up doing that
How important is a ball valve?
controls the return flow to sump
I think it would work if I can get some 32mm outside diameter pipe to use as a sleeve.
Job for tomorrow now anyway.
How did you get round it pal
Is it a 32mm ballvalve you need or the inch one?
My pipework was imperial and I had to convert from 1 inch to 32mm
Snag was the 32mm pipe was too lose in the 1" ballvalve so I had to use plenty of glue and then epo putty around the join as I had a slight leak
I'm not sure to be honest. The pipe I've got is the solvent weld waste stuff from b&q. 32mm inside diameter. I've all the pipe and suitable fitting to suit this. The outside diameter is 36mm. So I need a ball valve that's either 32 outside so pipe slots over or 36 inside so the pipe slides in. If you see what I mean?
Ball valve need to go over the pipe so you need 36 ID valve
Dont think they do ballvalves in 36mm mate
Can you not take it back to b&q and get standard sizes?
25mm 32mm or 40mm are standard afaik
I know the 25mm is metric for 3/4 inch
32mm is the metric for 1"
You can get reducers etc
Have a look on coral culture website they do metric and imperial and converters etc
Do you mean outside diameter?
Yes mate afaik
It used to be 3/4 and 1 inch etc
Unless I am talking ******** and it is the outside diameter
Confirm on coral culture plumbing section to be sure though
Il have a look cheers. Sending me crazy this lol
On coral culture if you order the 32mm pipe then that will fit in the 32mm tees bends ballvalves etc that they sell as well
Oh and don't do what I did order loads of teese etc and then get the screw ones as I picked the wrong ones
Obviously the same goes for 25 and 40mm stuff as well
For some reason banq etc use non standard or slightly varying size's etc so 32mm is nor quite 32mm I know I tried doing it that way as well lol
I can imagine they do if so people have to go back to them
Finished work now so will have a good look. Thanks mate
