    Hi Guys

    I purchased two BoyU tanks - couriers kindly delivered both cracked on the bottom. Normal glass base with a slight curve in the front. Can someone please direct me to a person who could urgently assist in replacing the glass in the JHB area.

    I have a shipment arriving and am relying on at least one of these tanks as a added holding/climatising tank.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

    Thanks all

    Andre

    i would not remove the glass, i have the same tank, but based on the crack i would sandwich the glass between to thicker pieces, there is room for 8mm glass.

    as NJ said, need a pic

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the reply. The one tank is completely shattered from the one corner in various directions. The other I have yet to see as the couriers thought they could try and fix it and now informed me that nobody is willing to assist.

    Should I count my losses and buy Yet another tank or has anybody ever been able to repair a Boyu HX- 800 safely

    Thanks

    Andre
