This project has always been a dream to be realised.
Now it's on!

There is no way back!
The glass arrived today, so we have to pull through with this project from now on.
I yet have to detemine whether is will glue it as one single tank or as 3 part segmented tank for redundancy.

Looks great. You are in the netherlands so not sure if you know but a large chunk of our state was devastated by a Category 4 hurricane. This thread could be an inspiration for those who will need to rebuild. Looking forward to it.

Just finished placing the braces on tank1
I had a little help from my son, we placed them together within a half hour.
The prepartions however took a little bit longer. Three glasstrips were 2mm oversized and did not fit, so i had to cut them myself. The terpentine to fill the glass cutter was used up, so i had to go out for a new bottle.
After that cutting the glas was easy peasy.
Next time i will use 5-6mm tolerance for the braces

Clamps removed from tank1 + extra kit on braces
Moved 140 liter development tank to diningroom
My friend Stefan came and together we move tank1 into it's final position.
Cleared the stand for section 2+3 as preparation to extend this stand with 1 meter.

Wow! Approximately many gallons do you have in the home total at this point prior to the new system? If tried something like this in Louisiana, I would have to run 2 or 3 dehumidifiers.
Right at this moment i have about 3700 liter saltwater tanks in my home.
Yes i to have 4 dehumidifier and 2 airco units which i apply if necessary .

We do crazy things for our beloved hobby....

Thursday was a "jobfree" day. We went out to do some shopping (including for this build)

Friday, september 10, 2021 - completion of section1
Planning the drill holes to connect tank1 to section2. Also planning the optional overflow.
Glued in a vertical brace to protect drillholes against forces from the front panel.
Bolted stand of section 1 to the wall.
Rewired and placed new poweroutlet for the airco unit.
- Next job: extend section 2 stand from 4 to 5 meter.
