    I have a 125 with corner overflows. The plastic dividers were damaged when I bought it, does anyone make a replacement kit? Or has anyone repaired these by salvaging and siliconing in good ones from a bad tank?

    I see some companies offer kits. But now I'm thinking maybe it would be worthwhile to take out the corner baffles, plug the holes, and drill the back for a box on the back style overflow

    I would suggest this route. A well designed overflow box using the bean animal 3 drain overflow is a much better system IMO.
    Corner overflows aren't bad. The tanks with the big full height overflows along the back wall are terrible.

    Do you have a pic? Might be repairable

    not handy, but the grates at the top are broke out. maybe ill look at cutting the baffle out entirely and make a beananimal system through the bottom bulkheads with some black pvc stand pipes

    Ok. So it’s just the “teeth” that are busted out? I thought you might be describing the entire overflow tower, like a skimpy from top to bottom

    If it’s only the teeth, just cut them all out and epoxy in some gutter guard

    Shop Frost King Plastic Gutter Guard at Lowes.com
