The methods people have already said work. Also, if you don't have rubber coated pliers, covering the compression with a towel and tightening with a wrench/pliers works too. Just be careful. Generally, hand tighten til you see blood, then wipe the blood with a towel and use it the rest of the way =P
Just kiddin, tightening a ton of compressions by hand can be a PITA though, so the towel method or anything that will keep the wrench/pliers from scraping off the paint works well.
When I'm testing for leaks, I have a AC->DC Power Brick that has a wall plug on one end and a 4-pin molex on the other end. If you're pump has PWM, you can use a ModMyToys Power PCB like i have that has a Molex input and a bunch of other outputs so you can use a fan controller or PWM controller to change the pump speeds. Or you can just plug the pump straight into the Molex and let it run at full speed since you're testing for leaks anyway. That way i can do my leak tests away from PC. Most people just jump their PSU though....
