Leaks and Smashes

Hi,

Iíve purchased a 117 gallon Evolution Aqua 1500s pro reef tank with a sump. It has no water in it as yet.

Iím in a rented property and Iím absolutely terrified of floods and leaks at any point of my hobby. Itíd cause untold chaos to not only my home, but the cellar underneath that houses all the electrics of 7 properties in this building, plus the beauty business on the other take of the adjoining wall.

Iíve looked into things like industrial water-absorbing socks, sponges and pads but theyíre not designed to hold 536 litres!

How do you guys protect your properties - and especially electrics - from water damage on a small or titanic scale?

Iím not seeking advice on insurance or suing the manufacturer as itíd be useless if Iím already murdered by my landlords.

Build a platform below with a drain that goes outside or somewhere better than the basement.

Thank you, although I don’t know whether you’re joking. I doubt my landlords would appreciate me getting the builders in! ��

Maybe I’ll just have the tank and electrics regularly checked and maintained!
