    I did the same thing a month or so ago, but I used an old freezer I found on Craigslist and added a temp control sensor so it won't freeze my drinks! You did a good job!

    Man, that is fancy! It is my job to empty coolers, not make them.

    Re: Outdoor cooler project

    Thanks everyone!!!
    I used 1/2" fittings for the drain setup.
    I purchased this http://m.homedepot.com/p/Halex-1-2-i...1631/100129507

    Plus 1/2" nipple and 1/2" female connection spigot. All is water tight.
