    Awesome Product

    Review by on May 30, 2016

    We have about 50 of these installed on 5 gallon buckets and have not had a single problem leaking with the way we install them. Just before you put the threaded end in the bucket, just put a dab of caulk on the threads. This will give you a little extra protection from leaks. Again, we probably have 50 of these now and love them.

    Works Great.

    Review by on Jul 20, 2014

    This nipple was easy to install and works perfectly. No drips, good flow. The chickens love the attached nipple-waterer.

    Review by on Jun 9, 2014

    It leaks! A steady drip from the bottom of the bucket. Husband tightened as much as possible without breaking it and it still leaks. Tried pipe thread, it still leaks. Tried a different piece of rubber and it still leaks. Now I'm fixing to try Flex Seal as a last resort. What a pain this has been.

    not what I expected

    Review by on Apr 10, 2014

    Not exactly what I expected. I may be able to use it for something else as it would cost more to return than it is worth.

    almost super easy

    Review by on Sep 19, 2013

    this adapter was almost super easy to install, after drilling the 1/2 inch hole it did take a bit of work to get the nut to catch on the threaded end. If that part was a bit longer it would have been SUPER Easy! It is working fine though.

    Good deal

    Review by on Aug 12, 2013

    I am glad I purchased this item. It included all the necessary components for a bulkhead type fitting. Glad all the parts were available together as a package. Especially since the size is not as commonly used. Thanks QC Supply!

    Sealed with Silicon

    Review by on May 18, 2013

    These work, but in the case of the two that I'm using with plastic 5 gallon buckets, they leaked steadily until I installed them with silicon sealant.

    Perfect piece for the job

    Review by on May 16, 2013

    This adapter was easy to install (I wasn't using it for a tube watering system, but something similar--used a soldering iron to melt a hole in a vinyl bag to fit the adapter). The neoprene and metal washer are totally adequate for preventing leakage from the bag. Cheaper to buy these parts as a kit instead of individually, too.
