Built in overflow?

Post by lostsurferguy on Mon Feb 28, 2011 7:39 am

So I have discovered my tank has a slight leak( or could have a slight leak) I have noticed salt creep on the bottom left corner of the tank, I have a hang on overflow that I ALLWAYS have problems with. So I came to the conclusion that I am going to take my tank down and rebuild it. But this time I want to build a build in overflow. This way if my airline gets clogged i will not have to worry about my tank over flowing!

My question is if i discover that my tank has a small leak in the silicone after i re silicone the whole tank do you guys know anyone that can drill a hole in the glass for me so I can build a corner overflow? alien cheers

I know this is a couple weeks old, but did you get it drilled? I have a 1 3/4" glass bit (for 1" bulkheads). I got it off ebay and drilled my tank. First time ever drilling glass and I didn't have any problems. You're welcome to borrow it or I could help if you want.

Yes I paid 25 to get it drilled and ended up dropping another 20 to get the whole tank re sealed.
Thank you thou, I appreciate it.
