View Full Version : Leaking Sump!

09/30/2012, 11:54 AM
This morning when I woke up I found about a 1/4 cup of water on inside of the stand around the sump. I wiped it up thinking that it was just some water I had spilled yesterday. 1/2 an hour later I look again and see this.





The water is oozing very very slowly out of the top of the bottom brace. (It is a DIY sump made out of a store bought 20g tank.) I think it may be getting under the sump too.

I wiped it up again and it is back in half an hour. How do I fix this without replacing the whole sump?

Please help and thanks in advance.

I had that happen to me once, I just went and bought an Eshopps Acrylic Sump, one of my best investments so far.
