I am just wondering is there any around time that a tank lasts before having to be resealled>?

-- Just the reason Im asking is because my 29 gallon is coming up on 6 years old and have moved it carefully a few times to change its placement, but how long do they usually lasts before having to be resealled>?

Ive never had to do this, but common sense dictates that it is time to reseal when the tank starts leaking.

I was just wondering if there was like a certain limit that most tanks usually last then you should reseal to prvent leaking, but do most tanks last lifetime?

Thanks all

My mom has a 65 gallon perfecto that was purchased in the late 70's. It was broken down in 91 and sat in her basement until 2002. I helped her break it down and move it to another room last month. So it is around 25 years old and has never been resealed and has never leaked a drop.

I've got a tank that's 1980's vintage.
