Hard Anadized (MIL-A-8625, TYPE III, CLASS 1) in a pneumatic piston application

Hard Anadized (MIL-A-8625, TYPE III, CLASS 1) in a pneumatic piston application

(OP)
I have an aluminum piston that has already been hard anodized (the sleeve only). When I went to go apply pressure the assembly leaked. After doing some research I found that the hard anodize is very porous.

Is there a way I can salvage these piston sleeves? Through polishing & maybe sealing up the pores?

Far too little information provided about this problem to assist.

What piston aluminum alloy? What mechanical finish [ASME B46.1].
What cylinder alloy and finishes [inorganic and mechanical]?
What clearance-tolerances between the piston and cylinder bore?
How much material did You grind to attain clearances?
What seals/gaskets... per what spec?
What is the fluid: Air? Hydraulic Oil?
Etc?
Etc...
