Rain barrel tap?

Hey guys does anyone know how to tap a rain barrel? I have a spigot but have no idea how to install it onto the rain barrel. Thanks

I'm using it to store ro water for water changes although I heard if it rains for awhile the rainwater should be ok since the water should be clean by then.
