It seems to me, that instead of: " Drill a hole, insert the coupler so the threads are on the outside of the lid. Silicone it in place. Then as long as the screw cap had a gasket on it, your golden."

Wouldn't it be easier to just: "Drill 1inch hole, insert drilled stopper for airlock."

?

Not sure why the extra trouble....

Not trying to be a d*ck, just have a tendency to make things overcomplicated myself, and trying to prevent others from doiong the same.

Wouldn't that thing have/require a lock nut of some sort? It looks like a lock ring would be better than silicone in this situation. Plus it could be made tighter & removeable for cleaning. Just like a spigot...

LOL

I also tend to do the same. As evidenced.

Your idea would be the simplest. And easiest.

I like to keep it simple. Thus removeable for cleaning,replacement,etc. Just makes more sense to me anyway. Besides,simple is cheaper as well as easier to deal with day to day. Dang I wish this single digit storm would move on. Heater can barely keep up...
