My cf1000 has leaky taps, they were only replaced about 8-9months ago and up untill the last filter clean was all good but when i put it all back together it was leaking like crazy from the taps. Im out of work currently so would prefer it if i didnt have to replace them again. Any suggestions? Have tried thread seal tape but still getting a steady drip
Hey everyone, Haven't posted in a long time. Here's the scenario: I had to help a friend with an "aquarium emergency" a coupl'a weeks back. The 120 gallon tank(less than 2 years old) had a minor leak but he was leaving on a trip that afternoon & needed help with a total tear down & evacuation of the problem tank. Most fish brought to LFS for $$. I've been meaning to buy an aquarium for my basement but I have never resealed an aquarium before. I am an average DIYer and for the simple economics of it all I'm thinking of taking his aquarium & doing a reseal. Would this be a wise move? I'm in no rush to set it up so I'm thinkin' of giving it a go but the tank worries me! The fact that it's such a young tank and for it to just start leaking out of the blue I'm a little worried it's not a silicone issue but maybe a glass issue?! (if that makes sense) Meaning.. maybe the glass is not cut correctly or doesn't line up right.
