OnlyGenusCaps Posted June 30, 2021 Share Posted June 30, 2021 Hi all. So, I've been battling a leaking bulkhead that is the only thing standing between me and my beautiful new tank. The fish are in QT, and it has been cycled (though I am sure it's not helping taking it down all the time to rework this 😡 bulkhead!). I've tried tighter, looser, I've added grease, I'd used different bulkheads. At this point I am considering cleaning everything up, and gluing the bulkhead in place using the GE 100% silicone for plastic sheeting (same stuff that Dean uses) to fill the hole from the outside. I know this will bond to my acrylic, the rubber gasket, and the PVC. If it works, it will likely never leak. My fear is that if it doesn't it will be an awful mess to clean up and I'll be back at square one with no ideas of what to do next. So my question to all of you is this: just how bad of an idea is gluing this bulkhead in place? Thanks in advance for the input! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
