Jared,
What did you use to cut the hole?

Are you talking about the kind that you use with a drill ? I've seen your work and could not picture you using a jig saw and having a raged or elongated hole. I've never seen a drill holesaw that size and would imagine it would need a little horsepower to cut that diameter. Just wondering because I have been considering doing this to mine.

Yep. IIRC, it was a 4.5", but don't quote me on that. I just used a cordless drill. A jigsaw would work fine also, you should be able to do a perfect circle that size with one.

I installed a 6" deck plate in my water tank. Drilled a starter hole. Then tried to cut the hole with the jigsaw, but it went wonky on me. Used a fillet knife to finish the job. I believe I sealed it with silicone. Got my deckplate on Amazon. The clear plate helps for quick inspection.
