I use a short piece of plastic pipe around the bulkhead/nipple (sometimes with a slit) between the walls of the cooler. Prevents compressing the walls to the point of cracking the wall(s).

Have you thought of applying the silicone from the inside wall so as to limit exposure?

Just a thought. Dan F.

Well I just ordered a small tube of RTV Food Grade Adhesive Silicone Sealant. I was able to find a few different NSF compliant sealants, just no one had it locally and the shipping is what gets you on this for some reason.

Food Grade Adhesive - $3.23
Shipping (cheap as possible) - $8.73

If you found it somewhere with really cheap shipping and are thinking about posting it here to rub it in.... Don't.
Just don't.... ; |

Shipping is what gets us all on small purchases. Great price for the product we want and then the shipping is astronomical. Just gotta say "oh well" at that point. hmmm. I suppose the only good thing about it, is.....?
