Aquarium Plumbing Professional Installation Service and Tips | Doctor Drips

Aquarium-Plumbing-Professional-Installation-Service-and-TipsInstalling an aquarium may appear to some to be an enormous feat. It is true that an aquarium, and the plumbing thereof, requires a lot of care for both the machinery and animal life inside to remain healthy. The care for an aquarium system can be done at home with the right know-how, especially once a professional installation of your system has been done. We will give you a simple rundown of the plumbing parts you are most likely to encounter while looking into the care and maintenance of your saltwater aquarium system at home. 

 

The Barb Fitting:

 

These fittings are meant for connecting tubing to their appropriate places. Be sure to push the tubing onto the fitting as secure as possible and secure it with a plastic clamp. 

 

Threaded & Slip Fittings:

 

These fittings work just as their names imply; by screwing in a fitting, or slipping in a piece of piping, respectively. Threaded fittings should be used with Teflon tape, and can be redone at a later time, while slip fittings will require gluing for a permanent connection.

 

Ball & Gate Valves:

 

These valves are necessary for adjusting the flow of a particular plumbing segment. While the handles are styled differently, they both work to reduce or increase the water flow through it. 

 

Check Valve:

 

A very important piece of plumbing for your aquarium (and living room floor!) is the check valve. This valve remains open for water to flow through until there is a power outage when it shuts off the path where the water would otherwise siphon down to and flood out. 

 

These are some of the main plumbing parts you might encounter while maintaining your beautiful home aquarium. If you prefer to have a professional continue to maintaince your aquarium, or inspect any possible problems with it to make sure everything is in top shape, give us a call today at Doctor Drips at 615-970-0047.
