    Did you use a butterfly gasket over the liner?

    How bad is the leak (drops or pour)?

    I wonder if I went wrong by installing it before there was water weight on the wall?

    I wouldn't think so. Did you use sealant on it?

    You might lower the water level and take it apart and see if there's anything obvious. If not you can try silicone sealant.
