View Full Version : Need tank drilled and overflow installed

01-20-2011, 01:53 AM
I pretty much know who makes custom tanks in Calgary but all I need is a couple of holes drilled and a herbie overflow installed in a 30 Gallon tank.

Is it a given that custom tank builders will do this? If not anyone who knows someone in Calgary that will?

I am getting my first tank drilled... A 180 that is already in my home. I called King"s and Johnston Glass. They wold both drill but not in home. I didn't get a price though..

Franco's also drills in shop or in home.

That's what a newbie knows! :-)

I am guessing though that these glass shops wont be siliconing an overflow? These are glass shops right?

i ya know for a fact that it not temered then i am sure i can help u out a bit. i work in calgary all week and u could swing it over and we could drill that sucker for ya. what type of over flow are you wanting

The all glass website says the tank they offer that is the exact same size is not tempered. Although I bought this tank from them in 1998 so I dont know the chances of whether they would have went from tempered to non tempered...

I was just hoping for a black over flow that went along the side of the tank so I can have a herbie style overflow with 1 " PVC tubing.

So I guess most custom tank builders dont retrofit? :lol:
