So my tank arrives tomorrow, it has no overflow, and the importer told me that the glass is car glass.
Now on a quick search on google I found that car glass is either tempered glass or laminated glass. Windscreen is laminated and the rest is tempered glass.
And I m now puzzled on what I should do.
I have the following options:
Replace the back glass with a drilled glass or acrylic. How difficult is it to remove the back glass and how hard is it to glue a glass or acrylic piece?
If I have the tank drilled and the back glass shatters, is there a risk the front and bottom glass will shatter too?They are glued together with silicon.
Have a HOB overflow and accept that the siphon will sometimes break and the return pump will burn when it pumps back all the water from the last chamber of the sump(where the pump is).
