    ok so here's the specs

    Tank 1- 117(L) x 46(W) x 50.5(H) cm with corner overflow 30 mm pipe towards sump
    Sump - 91(L) x 32.5(W) x 32.5(H) cm
    Tank 2- 120(L) x 45(W) X 45.5(H) cm

    Tank 1 is older than tank 2 so to ensure safety it would have to be resealed because the silicon is starting to look not lekka,also few minor scratches

    Tank 2 was n bathwater tank and has no overflow.....but the tank is in pristine condition.

    so heres my options I was thinking of.

    Option A- Redo tank 1 with new sillicon
    Option B- Use Tank 2 and drill overflow

    This will be my upgrade project and due to financial constraints it will be phased over an extended period of time...........

    Thoughts?
