Female thread? The three common type I've seen are male threaded, not seen a female threaded.

Common is a real fine thread that is just a dust cap, it actually has a 2 inch cam lock groove on it, very common in any farm supply store. Got mine at Runnings, female 2 inch cam lock, reducer fitting to 3/4 inch, and a 3/4 to garden hose adaptor.

Another is 2 inch pipe threads. Similar adapting, common ag spray stuff.

A third is a course thread, similar to 2 inch pipe but different thread count. You have to search a bit for that, not as common anyhow 'here'. I have one of these totes, have not happened upon the adaptor yet myself.

You need a 2 inch buttress thread to 2 inch NPT adapter. Look at the link in my other post.

Yes, buttress, that is the name!

I have one with the odd ball threads. I had the original cap for it so I drilled a hole and put a garden hose to pipe thread adapter in it with a rubber washer on the back side. The thin nut was from a electrical conduit connector. It worked out pretty good.

I'm not sure exactly what sort of tanks are being discussed since the original poster did not completely describe.

I've got near twenty of the 250 gallon cube-shape tanks that were originally used for molasses, cider, etc. Square shaped and originally had a steel cage around them so they can be stacked on top of each other. I see them all over the country. Every one of them that I have, has a male stub on the bottom of the tank that is 2 13/16" OD with 6 threads per inch. The shut-off valve that is usually screwed onto the tank has 2 7/8" female with 6 threads-per-inch that goes onto the tank.
