I just called hte national # to see if they could tell me hte closest store that had it none in ohio had it at all.So she decided to do this for me.It was worth a shot and it worked I was also suprised I thought I would need 5+ bags in the 180 I put 4 and it looks great.

note: I paid no shipping and it was $3 a bag

Tighter is not always better when using teflon tape. Teflon tape also lubricates the joint making it easier to assemble. But it also makes it easier to overtighten. Also, tons of tape is no good either. Use 3-6 revolutions of tape to seal joints.

If I were you, I'd order a new bulkhead. This time do a better job sealing it and wait overnight to be safe that it's completely dry before testing it. It's better to do it right the first time than to have 180 gallons spilling out later when no one is around.

I got it sealed, but yes I agree on the spilling when I aint around. I ran it 24 straight the other day and will be only running it when I am home until I get it set up. It was only a drip every 10 seconds to begin with and now it doesn;t drip at all so I mean.

justmy2cents: I dont know the number off hand you'd need to go on there website get the customer service # call ask them to search your area for the sand , then if not any ask them to do the same

the only "trick" I can think of with PVC is just to be sure to use a generous amount of glue on both the inside of the female joint and the outside of the male joint. Then when you're putting the two pieces together, give them a 1/4 twist and hold it together until it sets (5-10 seconds). Sometimes the PVC can actually push itself out of the joint before it sets if you're not holding it in. Then give I would give it 5-10 minutes to dry before testing. JMO

Added 200lbs of the sand to the tank still cloudy as piss, just look at the foam.And for those concerned no I didn't rinse it 8) 8O It will settle. I been making ro/di for like 2 days straight and jsut got to the water line all I need to do now is get the sump full.
