I used a bigger bulkhead fitting I got from morebeer and I used hole saws to make the hole bigger and to cut the relief in the outer plastic. The fitting comes with it's own washers and has 1/2 pipe internal threads on inside and outside of the fitting. I also used their stainless false bottom. It works fantastic.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment
