the rubber gasket inside of the shut off is probably loose, if it is just give it a quick tightening and that should do the trick

The overflow pipe broke off when I was installing a new fill valve. I bought a new flush valve that came with a thick, pink gasket. When I used this gasket, the tank doesn't sit close enough onto the...

I haven't seen a pink one, but the new gasket should fit over the nut on the new overflow. Keep tightening down the bolts slowly a little bit at a time on each one until the tank doesn't rock. Check on it for a week or two to make sure it doesn't leak. If you don't like the seal that came with the kit, you can buy a different one for a few bucks at the hardware store.

I live in rural northeastern Minnesota and am going to extend my pump lower into the casing. This is a mostly granite or greenstone area, no limestone to neutralize carbonic acid, and so I have learned...

I would recommend using the PVC drop-pipe. This pipe is SCH80 with threaded end, you'll need PVC drop-pipe couplings too. If your pump is just @ 10GPM or so 1" drop-pipe should be fine. If you are going larger I'd recommend at least 1-1/4" drop-pipe. Depending on the weight or horse powe of the pump you may require brass couplings. Also use torque arrestors too. With any plastic pipe these are a must.
I hope this may have helped,

My master bathtub is leaking

Yes the weight of someone in the tub plus the water can push the tub down far enough to cause the leak.
Unscrew the flange in the tub that holds the drain to the tub. Get some plumbers putty and make a bead to fit between the tub and flange.
Make sure the rubber gasket is clean ..use a bit of plumber's putty on this as well. Get an assistant to stand in the tub while you snug things up.
Snug it up tight.... replace if the threads are stripped as you said.
Plus if your house is less than a year old, I'd talk to the contractor/builder if possible about warranty work...most reputable builders will cover their work for the first year.

Waste trap under bath leaks

put the putty under the flange where it makes contact with the inside of the bath, push the flange to the bath & tighten nut underneath. Trim off excess. Have an overflow pipe [not intergral] make sure the top & bottom of the collar have rubber seals
If the whole lot is plastic there may well be a leak down & along the thread of the waste.[it comes from the o/flow pipe collar] Silicone the thread and tighten nut. make sure it's dry first - silicone & water do not make a happy couple
