thats a really neat idea. what did you do to build that? just drill a whole and put a water phosit(sp?) on it?

its a half inch ball valve hose bib and a half in coupling together and a plastic half inch nut of some type. i used marine silicone behind the flange of the hose bib and around the out side of it. the hard part is to tighten the hose bib and the nut snug. what i did was take a piece of rebar and hold it agianst the ear of the nut and turn the hose bib till it gets 1/4 inch from the drum and spread on the silicone thick the finish tighting and silicone the rim of the flange good and let it sit for 24 hours and then our ready to go.

yep that strap will not hold in an accident, and if it broke and spilled everywhere you will be needing a hazmat cleanup. and that is not cheap.

The drum is only filled with water.....used to mix roundup inside the sprayer as needed

Why didn't you just use a threaded adapter and use the threaded bung hole?
