    New 180 gallon

    Reeffrontiers,

    We just completed a very nice 72x24x24 all 1/2" black back with a center OFB. We installed a pair of 3/4" returns, a dry conduit for electrical, a 1.5" primary drain, and a 1" back up drain into this beauty. The client wanted a round over detail on the front verticals. No problem at CFI! I just love the chamfer detail on the round over, on the top panel, but couldn't capture that detail with my sub par photo skills! Well, here is what she looks like, enjoy! J

    Sorry about that.

    I looked at the pictures when you first posted them.
    Really, only thing that I thought was that this tank is just like all your work. Excellent quality, excellent detail.

    Thank you gentlemen! This tank fought me all the way, but it submitted to my will. It turned out outstanding. The customer agrees, which is the important part for me. I know all you guys have seen my work and can appreciate what it takes, but to hear nothing but grasshoppers chirping! Lets hear from some of the new members or the lurkers...J

    Is the hole between the overflow covers for the "a dry conduit for electrical"?

    Seeing this tank up close compared to the pictures just doesn't cut it.. the 180 turned out awesome and the attention to detail is amazing. I took my time looking for a builder and very happy I decided to go with CFI.
    Good friend of mine is building the stand/canopy and he's almost done, plus I'm still waiting on a few other things but will definitely post progress pics when I get started.

    Thanks again Jason!
    Btw.. how's that sump coming along
