Drain Bulkheads for Vivariums

I was planning on putting in a drain bulkhead into either a zoo-med or exo-terra terrarium to make sure I didn't have too much of a water build up in the bottom. Mist King sells one but it requires a 1.5" hole and I really don't want to drill that big of a hole in the tank, I'd rather make one around 3/4" or so that's well in the drainage layer instead of expanding though it. (if someone knows why this isn't a great idea I'd like to know that as well since this is my first vivarium)

I know I can get bulkheads from reef stores like bulk reef supply but can't make heads or tails of the offerings with their threads and slips and slips and threads and thread and threads. Anyone put one of these in piece by piece and can give me an idea of what I need to buy?
