    Can anyone give me advice on dealing with an 11 month old Marineland on a leaky 220RR? Tank and stand were purchased together new and have pictures showing it is level. Marineland says I have to deal with the insurance company and the insurance company says they are working with Marineland but it appears that absolutely nothing is being done. Any one been there done that? Any advice?

    Just as an FYI, If you choose to repair the tank yourself.... It's not as easy as simply pealing the silicone out of the leaky sides and resealing. If you go this route do some research. You will find that you will need to break the entire tank down and reseal everything. You can't / shouldn't just patch over with silicone, especially on a tank that large.

    I believe @Ray/Jen_Reefin@Ray/Jen_Reefin
    had a 250 DD leak a few years ago. I believe they had issues getting to a resolution but dont recall the details.

    Correct @Dave@Dave we did. It was a very long process to get a resolution but Marineland did finally settle up after all the hoopla with their insurance company got done with their technical crap. Stay on the insurance company.

    How long did it take? I can tell that they are in no hurry. It almost like they are hoping that I just go away if they drag their feet long enough.
