Predrilled 75gal. Question of saltcreep??911

I have a question my friend bought a used 75gal. SW predrilled tank w/ wet/dry filter. My question is it has been set up for a month now and the white tubing from predrilled hole in tank to the filter has a huge buildup of salt is this normal? I have a hung wet/dry filter on the back of my 55 gal for 3 years w/o no salt buildup at all on the tubing.

there would have to be some sort of seepage there. water is evaporating before it is seen and the salt remains. to fix it would require undoing the connections and cleaning the bulkhead threads and hose connections. and then clamp the hoses. don't overtighten the bulkhead, or you may be sorry.
