plumbing a 5 gallon jug for bbs hatchery

So I've had this picture saved for a while, and have tried a few different ways to replicate it, but have failed greatly thus far. Does anyone have any ideas for attaching these 5 gallon water jugs to PVC? I'm tried fitting it into pipes, and it doesn't seem to work. On top of that, silicone isn't great at sticking to plastics, so I don't trust filling gaps between the bottle and pipe with silicone.

Anyone?

Site picture came from



For those who don't know what the "mouth" looks likes, here's a picture off of google images (differs slightly between brands):


-Just a frost bitten Canadian boy.
-I come off as a little....abrupt/blunt. It's not intentional.

I have had great luck with these.

UNISEAL Flexible Tank Adapter (Bulkhead) - Marine Depot






Just drill the appropriate size hole anywhere in the jug, insert uniseal, and insert pvc into uniseal. I use them in 5 gallon Home Depot buckets, and standard plastic totes
