MegaFlow overflow kit

Okay should I use a silicone (Aquarium safe) in all the connections or pvc glue. The connections seem tight as can be but if it leaks then the water my slept back into the sump I think over night. The instructions seem straight forward but do not mention pvc glue or silicone. These are not pressurized lines but water will find a way . Thanks in advance for the help Gary.

If you have a doubt than GE silicone 1 would be your choice, always better safe than sorry, make sure it is 100% pure silicone with nooo mildew/mold killers!

I have a tube of Aqueon silicone aquarium sealant. That should do it I think.

Even better! Just allow ample dry time.

that's pretty permanent, at silicone will allow you to disassemble without a sawzall.
