The Move!

Today was the BIG DAY! I/we are moving the tank into the house. I made a dolly for the tank to sit on so we can roll it from the garage into the walkout basement doors. In order for us to be able to lift the tank (700-750 lbs) I added rope with PVC tube handles on all 4 corners of the dolly.



We had to lift the tank 3-4 times so the tank would not get jolted.



First exiting the garage and lifting the tank over 1 step onto the patio and then over the door sill into the house. Then we rolled it into my fish/office room. Because the tank is 32"+6" wide I had to place it onto its front (27") so it would fit through the office door. Last lift was onto the stand.

DONE!



Behind and under the tank is a pondliner to keep everything dry, just in case!
