2 other routes to get something back:
1. If you pay by credit card - some premium cards have "product insurance" included. So if something breaks or get stolen within a certain time, you can get your money back from the credit card co.
2. Your house/car insurance will cover accidental breakage - although for a 55, the deductible is prob. more than the tank. <Plus insurance co have a nasty habit of jacking up your rates with claims ... so prob not a good way to go!>
I think it is best to check with Perfecto first. They are pretty good & will prob give you a "good will" return. Failing that, you can take the 25%. That would be enough to buy a new piece of glass & fix the tank yourself. <Prob. not enough to get a pro to do it tho...>
