    Good decision Rob to bring the tank to your house....i can see that it would not be worth it to go to peoples home to drill...Unless theres 20 holes to drilll

    I only drill 1.75 and 2.5 inch holes Derik. Pricing will be based on the number of holes to be drilled, in what size combinations, in what locations on the tank and the thickness of glass involved. So people can PM me with their pricing requests.

    That depends on the thickness of the glass and the location of the hole. On tanks with euro bracing and next to no bowing you can get to pretty close. The thing to keep in mind is that once the bulkhead fitting is installed and tightened down it will bridge the hole and add strength. The risk of breakage during the drilling is not an issue at any location.

    If the bulkhead is sch 40 or 80 then the weakening of the drilled pane is minimal for sure. This is the OTHER overlooked reason for using high quality bulkheads.
