I recently bought a 110 pre dilled tall aquarium and I was wondering if is possible to seal one of the holes with a bulkhead and in the other one to put a water shut of valve for easy water changes. Mind you I got no substrate. d4b2b1ad-c237-4dc5-a6b0-cbcbd31454b4_300.jpeg
Well I already removed the corner overflow. And plug one of the holes with a bulkhead but I don't know if it would be safe to put the water shut of valve in the other hole or would the pressure be too much on the valve? I already got everything that I need to do it but I want to make sure is safe.

The valve should hold the pressure, just like a household valve will hold pressure when shut off. Most of my tanks are drilled with overflows for water changes, hose in tap, calculate gpm for the hose, set a timer & let the overflow do the rest. Once done add dechlor & move the hose to another tank.
