I have seen a few folks on here make a nipple waterer with a 5 gallon bucket with some 3/4 inch pvc. I want to make one. I didnt think it was going to be to tricky, just some plumbing and a few minutes of putting it together. But I have ran into a bit of a snag and need some guidance. The nipples that I have (vertical) are 1/8 inch male, and the hardware store does not sell a 1/8" to 3/4" or 1/2" T. I would have to buy 2 couplings, in brass, to make it work with what they have got...not going to happen at 4 bucks a coupling. Plumbing guy at the store suggested I get a 1/8" tapered drill bit and just set the nipple directly into the pipem would this work alright? Of course they don't have a 1/8" tapered bit, so I would have to order one.... Suggestions on making this work?
