1/2" MPT Low Profile Strainer A 1/2" MPT (Male Pipe Thread) Low Profile Strainer is a type of plumbing fitting used to protect pipes and equipment from debris and particles. The low profile design allows for installation in tight spaces, making it a popular choice in applications where space is limited. The strainer is connected to the end of a 1/2" male pipe thread and has a basket or screen that traps debris and prevents it from entering the plumbing system. This helps protect pipes and equipment from clogs, damage, and reduced efficiency. The basket or screen can be easily removed for cleaning, allowing the strainer to be regularly maintained and kept in good working condition. The strainer material is typically made of brass, stainless steel, or plastic, each with its own unique set of properties such as corrosion resistance, strength, and durability. It's important to choose the right type of strainer material for the specific application, taking into account factors such as temperature, pressure, and exposure to chemicals. Additionally, it's important to choose the correct mesh size for the strainer screen, as a screen with too large of openings may not effectively filter out debris, while a screen with too small of openings may restrict flow and reduce system efficiency.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
