Help - Bulkhead leaking

I moved my 72 gallon aquarium today, putting in a new floor where it once sat. After reassembling everything one of the bulkheads is leaking. I can't get it to seal properly. Should I go buy a replacement or is there something I can do.

72 gallon Oceanic Bow Front.
Oceanic sump with Magdrive 250 pump. Coralife HC lights.

2 Clown Loaches
3 Tri-Color Sharks
2 Placos
4 Honey Gouramis
10 Rosy Barbs
and a couple of rogue snails

Did you visually inspected it, real close, to see if there is an airline crack on it? Is the rubber seal on the inside of the tank? Could it be there is some left over sand under the seal?

If the BH is cracked, you will have to bite the bullet and purchase another one.
