    I want to add a header box to my A52 so I can recirculate. When I run the pump, the header box leaks. Any ideas on how to stop the leak? I don’t want to make this permanent; I still want to use it as my stream sluice box.
    I would share pictures, but I don't know how to do that.

    i put silicone on my seems .it stops the leaks and is easy to take off when you want.

    Silicone would be a last resort for me, you never get all of it off and can create problems later when you want to use it as a regular sluice. Might try duct tape on both sides first, or a thin foam weatherstrip, or a strip of bicycle inner tube.

    The leak came from the bolts. I added Neoprene Rubber Washers and it's all sealed up.
