    We've got a 300 litre corner unit which had been converted to marine with sump. Our old sump cracked and finding it difficult to get same size tank to replace so considering replacing with bigger, however to do this I need to remove the centre pole for about 20 minutes. Would this be ok if the tank is 3/4 drained?[​IMG]

    Don't hold me to it but if the tanks is 3/4 drained then I imagine you would get away with this for about about 10 minutes , I wouldn't want to risk any more

    DONT HOLD ME TO IT THOUGH AND ANY DAMAGE IS NOT OF MY DOING
