Mr. Leonard, where did you find those bungs for the barrel and are they a good leak proof system ?  I have a green plastic barrel that I was going to use for the 16.

They are 1-1/4" bulkhead fittings.  Sometimes called a Tank Flange with Gasket.   Got them from the local farm store in the plumbing area.  Come with a gasket and the inner nut.  Add a hose barb and you are good to go.  About $10 for the pair.

Drill in a 2 1/4 hole with a holesaw and thread the nut on.  All done!
