        I installed this ice probe using a 11/4" spade bit. You could use 11/2" but you will have less surface for the silicon washer to do its job. Or use the larger bit and add a dab of silicone sealant outside--but then you'd have a 'permanent' installation perhaps not a good idea to add sealant.
        Panos
        Addendum: Ran into the people who did my stall shower and was told: Yes, silicone seal will do the job and it can also be peeled off, if needed, later. So I was wrong about the permanent installation.
        Also: I have had this ice probe running in my tank(10 gallon) for about 10 days now and water temp steady at 71degrees. I had hoped for lower.

        I had a one and a quarter inch hole saw put it in the drill bam, my water temp stay right at 64 right now plant loves it. It does come with an oversized washer if you can't make an exact one and a quarter hole.

        How many gallons are you trying to cool and is your container insulated, my temperature dropped another 4 degrees or so after insulating. Using in a veg tent right now and it stays 79 81 degrees. Shoot some pictures love to see it. ☮️
