    Hi Guys

    I left my cube drying in a corner of the bedroom during the week.
    When the vrou helped me pick it up she noticed that the domestic had damaged a corner while sweeping.:dft004:

    Please help me assess the damage and please advise as to whether or not i should attempt to fill the tank.

    It looks like a nice clean corner chip - shouldn't be a prob.

    If there are struts on the inside , it wont be a problem, if there arnt - maby thats what you should do ...

    Mmm just had another look - no struts , mayby cut out the silicone allong the corner to the side or accross the front )and put a 6 or 10mm brace.

    But lets see what the other members say ?

    ah dude dont worry about it! I also have a corner like that. Mine was actually crushed when moving the tank. You can put some silicone if you like. I just left it and its fine

    she left the pieces of glass there for you.
    It looks like a clean chip. Will not run. At worst you can put a small glass brace on the inside.

    No problem in my opinion.
    No structural effect at all.

    Lucky its just a chip.. Fire the maid.. Lol.. My 'ex' maid cracked my back glass when she bumped the tank and dropped a few rocks inside. Now that was catastrophic.. Yours should be fine.. Can add a brace for peace of mind.. All the best..
