Perhaps an older hardware store employee can help you put something together. I find those type employees a hell of a lot more knowlegeable then the employees at the big box stores.
Me, too. The older guys at our local Ace just love to be faced with a challenge. They are the ones that helped me improvise a vacuum attachment for behind my Harman's rear baffle. They spent a hour or so just brain storming.
Thanks to everyone for the suggestions but the product Sting suggested is going to be the least inexpensive even with my perceived short comings. A quick internet search showed me the "bung" alone is around $20 and then you still have to get the spigot and the nipples. The rain reserve product is complete for 15.90 from Amazon.com so that's how I'll go. It will be great, I will just have to be careful when yanking on the hose. Thanks again, have a great day. Today is beautiful around here - the crocuses are coming up - it's going to hit 50* again today. Take care, Lisa
