I have a new set up, and can't seem to get my "main drain bulkhead" to seal. The bulkhead is a little loose in the hole, and it seem to leak down the outside threads. Slow drip. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? :question:

did you clean the area the gasket rests against?

i've only ever done hand tight and never a problem. maybe inspect the gasket?

Just to confirm, the rubber gasket is on the water(wet) side of the glass?

Have you tried to tighten using a pair of water pump pliers?

I think the culprit is a cracked bulkhead. Have gone to a glued in Slip type, as apposed to a thread/thread. fingers crossed.
