Does anybody know about how much it costs to have an overflow made including or not including drilling? I'm thinking of a corner overflow with the hole being drilled in the back of the tank rather than the bottom. This would be for a tank anywhere from 90-120gal. Thanks in advance...

I have a tideflow overflow that is kicking around that can handle about 1000 gallons per hour. It sells for $199 new... I'll let it go for $75...comes with everything and an extra u tube for more flow...works well...

just a thought...

I was hoping that somebody knew where I could get one made for around $50-$70 + the cost of drilling. I've been quoted up to $150 so far.

Some Speedy Autoglass outlets will drill tanks for about $20.

You can make an overflow box pretty cheaply yourself. Get some acrylic from a plastics or glass shop.

Revy also carries acrylic sheet.

But, a plastics or glass shop should have some small peices lying around for cheap.
