Strainers

An aquarium inlet strainer is a type of drain pipe guard that prevents large objects from entering the drain pipe. For example, the overflow guard prevents fish from getting sucked into the drain pipe and landing in the sump. An aquarium intake strainer also helps prevent snails from climbing into the overflow and getting stuck.

PVC fittings are listed according to PVC pipe sizes, not the actual measurement of the part. So, a 1 inch slip elbow does not measure 1 inch but fits onto 1 inch PVC pipe. PVC fittings are categorized by the types of connections they make:

MPT, or male pipe thread, has threads on the outside wall
FPT, or female pipe thread, has threads on the inside wall
A PVC slip fitting, or slip fit, has no threads and connects to PVC pipe
