Leave it dry. You've got plenty of time. See, me.....I woulda waited for the siliceon to dry. Pushing it in, you can tell if its dried on the inside. I woulda run the thing myself. I'm like you guys, I get impatient. Never had any trouble with it though, or else I woulda probably stopped doing it. But, thats me. Make up the water that will go into the tank, that will take a 24hour to mix up.
Welp, its alittle tough to explain but, you can adjust how much water goes back into the sump, via the reutrn line and the intake line. The intake line should not be glued, this way yoiu can remove it and put in either a longer line or a shorter line. This will allow yoiu to control how much water goes back to the sump by how far into the water the head goes. Next, there should be a hole drilled into the return line, so that when the water goes below that line it break the syphon, or point the return head just at the water surface, so that its just under the water line. Utilizing both of these options will keep the water in the Sump during a blackout.
I think they werent tight enough. I made three trips to Home Depot trying to find a wrench that fit with no luck! I twisted the pipes enough to where it's not leaking now, but the overflow is only 1/4 full. Do you put the silicone on the glass then screw in the bulkhead? Or screw the bulkheads, then put silicone over them?
