Tell us about yourself!
I like that idea... It set me in the right direction... I have already settled on 3/4 copper line. Little more expensive but it's what I found that worked for the spouts. Soldered a compression nut and pipe togther and used Water hose gasket to ensure a good seal (since I'm awful at soldering and the compress didn't seal).My next step is as you suggested, open the bottom... But I plan to use a 90 degree shark bite fitting...The problem still arises how to attach the bottle.
