A while back I bought the zymico thermothingy for adding a thermometer through the wall of my cooler:
Thermothingy™ kits for thermometers.
Anyway, I just got around to installing it. It involves drilling a 3/8" hole. Seems easy enough. Except, I did not drill it straight - it went through at an angle.
Needless to say, no amount of tightening of this thing seems to be helping in making it leak free. This really, really sucks.
Is there some sort of food grade silicon that I can fill the hole with now to salvage my $40 cooler? Or should I just ditch it and buy a new one. Really not sure how it would even hold up to filling with silicon, since the wall itself is not solid.
