The leaking issues I heard of came from the seal of bulkhead with tank not the PVC plumbing. Guess they didn't put the seal on right or just didn't tighten it enough. Good to hear you didn't have issues with the bulkhead so I'm not going to look for another alternative vs the BRS that didn't fit. Thanks for the follow up and best of luck with your 150.
Oh okay. If you are worried, i filled up just the overflow box while having some drain pipes in. I was able to get almost to the top so i figure its about the same amount of pressure on the seals. The trick is not to mash it down. Snug and then just a bit with pliers. If its creaking and poping from screwing it on, Its too tight lol.
And thank you! Ill check your setup out forsure!
