Leaky uniseals

I've installed uniseals onto 5 gal buckets and have several leaks. Edges are smooth, used silicone grease to install PVC but still have leaks. Any suggestions?

sealing uniseals

sometimes they swell up and seal themselves after 12-24 hours. I used to use Pam cooking spray to slide the pipe in. check to make sure youve got the correct whole saw size as well. good luck!

how to fix leaky seals.

Why did you use silicon grease on pvc?
your best bet would be to use auto sealastic as it is waterproof and can be painted on the pvc pipe or put around it with a gun.The other one is waterproof sicaflex can be used with agun as well.They are both adhesive rubber for cars and boats sealing.
