This false bottom fits a 10 gallon home depot cooler well. Any 1/2" MIP thread will fit the hole of the false bottom. All I did to make this thing work is to use a 1/2 OD x 1/2 MIP elbow. I used the plastic flange nut that originally came with my home depot cooler to secure the elbow to the false bottom. (You will retrieve this flange nut after removing the spigot that is originally on the cooler and replacing it with a ball valve - just look up how to do this elsewhere.) Then get a nipple on the inside of the cooler drain, and secure a piece of tubing from the nipple to the elbow attached to the false bottom. Be sure to have this false bottom in the cooler in the orientation of concave down, as that void formed under the bottom is where liquid shall accumulate. - Shawn.
The false bottom works perfectly. Sets up a good grain bed and filters well. Sure better than the old bag system I was using!
Got this for my 10 gallon Igloo from Lowe's. Fit perfectly. I upgraded from a 5 gallon cooler and glad I did. You can put a nut on the bottom of the screen to secure it to the arm but it is not recommended. If you put a nut on it, instead of letting it sit freely on the arm, it can move when you turn the ball valve on and off just slightly, which can cause some grain to get underneath.
Better than I expected. I did put it in differently. I used the plastic washer that was molded to fit the original gasket and the gasket from the original spigot on the inside for the valve/bulkhead assembly. The included O-ring I used with the stainless washer with the O-ring groove in it to snub down the false bottom. Leak free first time.
The false bottom was better than I had imagined it would be and it fit perfectly in my mash tun. Thank you.
