You won't even believe that after we filled the tank, we noticed that the table was on uneven ground and one end of the tank was lower than the other. He is going to have to drain most of it to be able to level the table.... :( .

WE discovered our tank was out 1/4 inch AFTER it was filled. My Hubby does some carpentry work and WE did not even THINK to check for level before we filled the dang tank!! Oh well, we will leave it and just keep it filled so it can't be seen.

I guess I'd worry about the tank having uneven pressure on it? I'm SO paranoid about my tank bursting (hehe, I live on the 3rd floor of a 3 family- the neighbors would LOVE me for that). I think I'd probably almost drain the tank and fix it up. But I guess if it was something small....
