Today I picked up a 75 gallon tank that needs resealing.
I also went to Lowe's and got some GE silicone 1 and some masking tape. I just got done removing some of the silicone. It is hard work, so I am taking a break.
Hopefully I will be done with removing the old silicone tomorrow. Once that is done, I will clean the tank and then apply the fresh silicone.
I removed some of the silicone on the bottom of the tank and I noticed an issue. It almost looks like some water is coming out of the bottom seam. The seam is what holds the tank together. The seal keeps the water in. Do you think the seams are bad? I hope not.
I had the tank on its side, so I think some wahet just got in that way. I am going to finish removing the silicone so I can reseal it.
OK, sounds like you are making progress....
I finished removing the silicone, but it has started to rain. I plan to bring the tank inside tomorrow and clean it and then reseal it. I am going to build a stand out of 2x4s for it.
I brought the tank inside. It snowed, so there is some snow in the bottom but that is melting now that it is inside.
The tank is dry now, so I am cleaning it out using isopropyl alcohol. Once that is done, I will be ready to apply silicone!
I finished resealing the tank. Tomorrow I am going to get the wood to build the stand.
I got the wood for the stand on Sunday and I plan to build it in a few days.
I still haven't built it. It has been cold and we need to use the saw outside.
Hopefully I will be able to start working on it on Sunday.
Today I plan to sand the wood and start staining it black.
Ok I have finished sanding the wood, I am going to start staining it.
I have finished staining the wood.
I am going to assemble the stand today!
I was hoping to have had it done by now, but I ended up not having enough wood so I am going to have to stain some more.
Lookin good buddy
Its been a month since the last update... Where are those stand pics?
It isn't done yet lol. I am going to work on the stand tomorrow.
I haven't had time to work on it. Hopefully I will be able to work on it this weekend along with getting the pond filter running.
One project at a time
Today I am going to get some more wood stain so I can finish the stand.
