How to seal a hole in a water garden container
Any hardware store will have the fittings needed for that----The name escapes me right now--sorry.
one side will have a hose thread---the other a long threaded section with a rubber washer --a metal washer and a nut.
Make sure that the inside of the hole is sanded smooth (whiskey barrels are charred ) and you are good.
If seepage occurs a sealant like permatex or Form-a-gasket should work (auto parts store or hardware store) Silicone might work,but I doubt it because of the wet wood.
