I'm no plumber, I'll just say that. I bought a spigot, drilled a hole in the barrel, wrapped it in thread lock tape, and put caulk on the outside to seal it from leaking. Well, the spigot wants to turn in place, and has broken the caulk seal. You really have to turn down on it, to turn the water off completely, and it eventually broke the caulk seal.
Need some ideas to fix it. Something that won't have the spigot trying to rotate in the bucket, when I go to turn the water off.
I use grommets for my hydro buckets and I totally wanted to do that, but I can't find big grommets that will fit the spigot. The "pvc into grommet" never leaks, and it's not even caulked.
