Thanks sniper. It's coming along nicely. I hope to have some water and distilled vinegar running in this tank by tomorrow.

I ended up switching out the barbs bulk heads with regular ones. I have the dursos installed and the return pipes with the loc-line installed. I will hook up the hoses today and reseal the overflow boxes.

Well I forgot I have to reseal the overflow boxes. I have to remove as much of the old sealant as possible then reseal them. I'm thinking another week or two if all goes well.

I was able to get the Overflow boxes resealed night before last. Now I will work on hooking up the flex hose this weekend.

Fittings are in place and flex hose is glued into the fittings. Yay! Now ready for some water to leak test.

Ok leak test failed. The bulk heads are not tight enough. My husband is going to tighten them for me.

Leak test passed on one side and still had a tiny tiny leak on the other side tightened some more and added some thread sealant on the threads right under the nut.
