    I don’t wear sunglasses ever. I will steal the hubbys. Can you put an iPad in the tank?

    I think cell phones and tablets are tempered themselves so it effects the outcome

    THIS was your opportunity!!!! Should have said the 75 they had was tempered and you wanted to drill. The only other option they had was a 120 and you didn't want to make ANOTHER trip, save gas, time, and get a bigger tank, win-win:p

    And I'll be honest, little terrified now with my tank being delivered in a few weeks and it's -30°C right now way up north.

    "Honey, if you do not believe me that it is 75 gallon, here is a measuring cup, check it."
