Aquarium Glass Scratch Repair Kit

Postby intuitive25 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 3:07 pm

Hi, I was looking around and noticed that i could'nt find any topics on Aquarium Glass Scratch Repair Kits or solutions.

So was wondering if anybody could explain there experiences with using one or how they deal with the scratches themselves, I seem to have collected a couple, And so i searched and found these kits already available, problem been is using a household electric drill inside of a tank im sure is problematic with size alone in some tanks.

So any advice or past experience im sure will come in hand if not for just me but other's to at some point :-):

I asked this question a few months back and the reply I got was live with them.

I know this is not the reply you was looking for but if you start buffing/sanding etc the glass you weaken it and could even end up cracking it.

The only way I would get it done is get a pro to do it.

The worse offender for scratching glass is sand behind the magnet cleaner. I installed a tank for my boss some years ago and there was a small scratch on the outside. We obtained a glass scratch repair kit and I spent best part of the day trying to remove it, but without success. We ended up taking the tank out, cleaning off the paint from the back and turning it round. A couple of months later his wife was cleaning the glass with the magnet and made several scratches before she realised. Needless to say the boss, who suffered with OCD, went mad.
