How to seal a pipe through 6 mil plastic


I have a wood box I'm using to hold water with 6 mil plastic as a liner. About 4 inches from the bottom I need to drill a hole (for a drain pipe...1" pvc) through the side of the wood box and also through the plastic liner. How can I seal the plastic liner around the pvc drain pipe? Is there a mechanical way to do this(ie: using threaded pipe and large washers), or a sealant of some kind that would work? Any ideas?

I would use a bulk head fitting or if I didn't care to have a hole in the box and conditions were conducive I may also just place a siphon hose over the top into the water the distance I wanted to drain.

The image senior showed should be available in PVC at a good hardware store. They are used for water heater pans.

Thanks for the idea...looks like it would work if I can find one with a wide enough lip to cover the plastic around the hole I cut...and I'll have to cut a fairly precise hole in the plastic (I'm going through a double layer of 6 mil).

Plastic liner and a wood box is just a very poor way to do this.
Why not a cheap cooler?
