Also keep in mind the spread of judging dates, from March 17 thru April 23. I looked for a date that fit my schedule to plan for a re-brew if necessary and put that as my first choice.

That is weird that it does not hold 5 gallons. Have you tried weighing it empty and filled with water to determine this?I filled it to the brim with StarSan from an extra Big Mouth Bubbler that has a valve I installed. Assuming the gallon markers on the BMB are correct, the Slimline Torpedo keg holds 4-3/4 gallons. And, really, about 4-1/2 gallons of beer.
But the weighing trick would be more accurate. I'll try that next time it's empty.
Morning,Would a large SS washer with a silicon o-ring or thick silicon gasket do the trick?
So I was working on installing some no weld thermometers into my keggle and I drilled the hole too large. So now the thermometer just slips through and is not a water tight seal, even with O-ring. I did a 1 inch hole when I think I should have done a 7/8 inch hole.
Does anyone know of a product or trick that could shrink down the hole or provide a water tight seal? Or should I go out and buy another keg/keggle?
The only idea I had atm was to get a large washer with a 7/8 hole and weld it to the keggle over my 1 inch hole.
Thanks for any help.
I'll have to check out that project. Got a link or anything?
As for the overflow, I'll have a wet switch placed 3/4 up my kettles to kill the power to the solenoid. As a fail safe I will have a wet switch mounted 3/4 the up my kettle to kill the solenoid. And, for redundancy I will have a second one to kill the pump. And, for my third fail safe I'm going to invest in a good wet vac and mop.
