The support I am adding will actually go the full length of the front from one end to the other covering the entire 10' length.Just saw this and I am sorry to see it!
Is it possible just 1 support in the middle will create a bow half way between the middle and the ends of the glass pane? How much extra work would it be to have three equidistant across the front?
I can’t believe there isn’t a patch for something like this that wouldn’t involve removing the whole pain of glass. That is awful.
But if there isn’t a good patch, I have some of those suction cups people use for moving glass. I have four of them and each one holds 210 pounds for a vertical lift. Let me know if you could use them. If I am available I will help with the lifting too.
It was not RTV108 but it was an extremely high quality Silicone. I do not think that anything would have held now that I have reviewed the problem. The main downfall was that the wood flexed more than the glass and with 8000lbs of water it was destined to fail.Was that RTV 108 or silicone that was used?
The engineer and actually 3 of them all reviewed and made minor suggestions but all agreed thsi was the best course of action and all were confident it would solve the problem long term.What did your engineer friend think of your plan to fix it? I would trust that opinion over us knucklheads.
