Turning large tank on its side


Recommended Posts

Wanted to throw it out here first before I did it. Anybody know if there will be any issues with turning a large tank (215 gals with 3/4" glass) on its side? I know that will put most of the weight on the silicone seals versus where it normally is on the bottom with the glass on top of glass interface.

I am attempting a leak repair and want to turn it on its side to remove the whole pane of glass and that makes it easier when its on its side so I can cut away the bottom trim and would also help when I reseal it as gravity would compress it for me. Thoughts?
