Leaks?

Is it me or my system? Finally get my system up and going for the first time and find three leaks, shut it down to seal leaks, start it up again and just when I think I've gotte all the leaks, It happens again.....

seal it up. let it sit for 12 hours(if unpatiant). 48 hours willing to wait. also just layer it one time give it five minutes then layer it again. i forgot what type of sealent i have but it takes 5 minutes to get a little hard that way i can keep adding layers but i have to let it sit for 24-48 hours for a perfect non leak seal.

where and how bad are the leaks?

if they arnt so bad and are on the baffles of the sump you should be alright as most of the water will be flowing over top anyways

I think I got it.....It was in this section of union, I tightened it and applied sealant, will start it back up at 5pm tonight, it will be 24 hrs since I applied sealant and want it to cure properly....
