My stand is from Aquatic Fundamentals, and the side panels are locked in using cam locks. All are in tightly, but one piece has a tiny gap as shown in the photos, on the bottom and top -- the other...

Makes sense. I just tried it and it was working great, as you said, but I had to do a little DIY with some tubing since this crappy spraybar came with the wrong elbow size. It started to leak from...
