Hokey dinah. Water leak test commencing.
Tank on the new stand
You really get a good feel for how it'll look once it's downstairs once it's all put together.
Sumpy. He fits. Just. Another 1" of width and he'd snug right in - as-is he must be dropped into place. Don't mind the 2x lumber, just temporary for plumbing fitment.
Side view, an idea of the ledge size
I think it's 2" wider than I'd envisioned...but a good and handy size nonetheless.
At this point the stereo goes off and my hearing moves into paranoid mode. Also, I discovered that only the ends are being supported!!! The 2x6's apparently have a 1/32" bow in them (totally thought I had the crowns up... :S ).
So fresh and so clear...
Quite impressed with how clear everything is.
No ominous creaking or cracks...so we'll go with that 1/32" gap will disappear once I get things onto the slab.
We're away this weekend, so hopefully it doesn't explode and ruin my garage. (haha, not like it could get much worse) Sunday evening when we're back I'll do the final measurements for the sump and overflow, Monday get the glass ordered, and then work on drilling/plumbing!
edit: My phone also got stolen/went missing whilst on vacation last week, so new iPhone camera pics for this post! I sense a noticeable improvement in IQ.
