Well, one gentleman was moving and not taking his 150 with him. Anothr gentleman wanted he 150 for a sump because it wasn't drilled, but had a 125 that he wouldn't need. I took the 125 off his hands for him.

I was busy in a wedding.

Any suggestions on which sealant to use for my stand?

Don't want saltgetting in there at all.

I will be sealing the corners with silicon so ever if the sump overflow water will stay inside the stand and not on floor.

several coats of a decent polyurethane will hold back the salt
