    Need someone who can drill a tank for me.

    Needs to come out to the jhb southern suburbs. Maybe i can bring the tank to you. Tank is an Aqua h20. Will probably need the cabinet underneath to be drilled too.

    Thanks

    How about some DIY dogstar. Get yourself a diamond bit from Builders warehouse and drill it yourself with caution. The idea is to drill very slowly and add water to area thats being drilled in order for the glass not to crack (Overheating). Hopefully somebody will give you the exact method of doing so.

    Just be careful some glass can not be drilled.

    I just saw this thread on drilling a jebo:
    Drilling a jebo - Anything DIY Related

    I suspect this Aqua H2O is probably made of tempered glass but not sure. Can anybody confirm? I guess I wont try drill it unless i know for sure.

    Otherwise just get yourself an overflow box.
