Great product at a great price
I purchased this bulkhead valve kit to install on my inexpensive department stare aluminum kettle. I have had no problems with leaking. I am an industrial maintenance mechanic. I checked all the popular industrial suppliers before purchasing this product. The s/s valve alone would be $30, and a bulkhead fitting was over $50. At this price it's a bargain. I plan on upgrading to a stainless steel brew kettle in the ne'er future. I will be able to move this valve to the new kettle along with my temp. guage.

Great Product
I purchased this valve kit to install on my inexpensive aluminum kettle. This valve installed very easily and I did not have any leaks. I'm not sure why timbo, the above reviewer had a problem. You do need to be careful not to over tighten the fitting.

Works as is
It seems to work!, yes if you know basic plumbing you need Teflon tape.I will in future be welding a SS same gauge patch on the hole to thickening the area. I have welding knowledge and the skill. ( SS wire and shielding gas )I have to comment about the aluminum people!, if you're brewing beer why would you use aluminum and than buy a stainless steel valve? Aluminum should never be used in brewing.

Works well, but installing without leakage a bit of a challenge
I am a beginner, to be sure, so keep that in mind. I found installation to be a little (stress little) challenging in so far as the threaded pipe that passes through the wall of the kettle is very short, and so you have to work at getting the proper length on both sides of the kettle such that you have enough length to tighten it up properly (inside and out). Once I got it in place, it did leak a tiny bit for me exactly as it did for timbo, i.e., between the nipple and the exterior tightening nut. I am going to redo the installation using a little additional silicone sealing tape to see if perhaps this solves the issue. Again, I am a beginner, and view this as a small challenge.

OK but...
I have to agree on the length of the nipple (threaded pipe that runs through the kettle wall). Just another 1/8 inch would have been tremendous. I ended up going to Home Depot and buying one about that long, and also picked up better o-rings that don't stretch / smash as easily when you're tightening each side. And yes, teflon tape is highly recommended.

Leaks
Good seal between the o rings. Leaks between the nipple and the valve. PTFE sealant tape didn't work. High temperature RTV seems to be working so far. Very Rube Goldberg and disappointing for the price.
