Hi Jason, I had an idea you might want to try. ask the glass tank
fabricator how much it would cost to unseal then reseal the tank! if
they unseal it, you could then take each glass section and top frame
parts down to your basement, then have them reseal it using clamps
that they can lend you to hold it together till it all cures. That
way you can get it down to your basement, instead of taking a major
loss on reselling it as is. Just a thought... good luck, -Joey

joey , thanks for your thought .. i already call them they wont do it they said they are not from here new york ..... now im working on taking apart the boiler room maybe this summer thats my other option ..... i'll keep posted ..... thanks dude . jason

I see, well, tank building is not a unique skill.
perhaps a local tank fabricator will do it for you.
It certainly can't hurt to look around and ask. -Joey

Joey, when I first read this thread, I thought this happened to you, and it was very unlike you.

Now it makes sense.

5 years ago A friend's husband had to have his living room window removed to put bring in a rear projection television.

I just have to ask... What is the structure of your basement like? Is the doorway wooden framed or just cement structured where you are attempting to get the tank through? I know a guy that had a problem with this and he finally removed the doorframe and cut away through the wall (all wood) then after moving the tank into place he rebuilt the wooden frame and wall.

Wallaa! His tank was in...PERMANENTLY!

We have ppl do this when buying Safes all the time! Amazing how they think you can just 'shove' a solid safe through a door that is an inch or two smaller than the safe itself.
