    Everything being in the dip side is a bad idea. Bubbles come up off of the elements and get under your film. The rest is just there to bump your part off and leave a scratch on your newly dipped part... I understand this is just your attempt to get in to the game, just letting you know what I see.

    Yes I had that issue with my last tank there is going to be covers over the elements tilted to send bubbles off to the rear of the tank that was my only idea to solve it anyway 😂

    And the tank is much deeper than it needs to be so I'm hoping I won't go to close to the elements and lights (hoping hehe)

    Why the lights?

    I have my elements in dip tank and they do put off lil bubbles but once i heat the tank up im good for a good hour or 2. Maybe cut them on for a min hear and there when the pump is running in between dips. Im not running production so im not in as big a hurry as some guys but i feel like if you insulate your tank you would be fine. @tizdipped my tank is 3.5 feet deep and i have hit the bottom before dipping 4 wheelers

    And im not sure those lights are gonna do you much good after a week or two of dipping

  • PagesHydroDippingPagesHydroDipping Posts: 393Member ✭✭✭

    Its all a bit experimental relay i haven't seen it before so thought why not the hole was all ready there and I had to fill it with something so way not a window so i can possibly film the dip from underneath yes it will need lots cleaning but hey!! And the lights are for under water can't see the problem there?

    Can't see is going to be the problem there.
  • smedlinsmedlin Posts: 1,612Member, Business Ninja ✭✭✭✭
    In all seriousness, whatever floats your boat.

    If making that port hole into a window makes YOU happy...meh, that's really all that matters.

    Yea unless you plan on refilling that thing once every couple of days? The algae and the film residue are going to turn cloud that thing fairly quick...remember it's a standing, heated body of water...perfect for growing algae...

    Anything is fine. I used chlorine powder from a local pool store and that worked fine. But bleach is cheaper and easier to get whenever I'm out buying supplies. Add a cup or so every week. Clean it when the bleach starts not working anymore and it smells like there's a dead animal in there.

    Whenever it smells like Jim's mom.. I know it's time to clean the tank.

    Well I went to fill the tank for the first time and it leaked from one of the elements! I don't know why as it was sealed to an inch of it life lol so drained it dried it sealed it lots more so now just giving it plenty of time to cure 😢
  • WileECoyoteWileECoyote Posts: 6,019Member, Moderator, Business Ninja El Moderator
    Let me guess... you using silicone sealant?
  • SreynoldsSreynolds Posts: 1,280Member ✭✭✭✭

    silicon and hydrographics go together like cocaine and waffles ....
  • tizdippedtizdipped Posts: 31Member

    It's not the heat of the element they're concerned about. They're concerned about that paint problems that are going to happen because of the introduction of silicates. My advise? Get All of it out of your tank and remove any silicons from your dipping area all together.

    Silicates cause fisheyes. Once the silicone is fully cured, not an issue. But always a potential for problems. Silicone caulk, WD40, Silicone spray, other lubricants, french fry grease on your fingers, etc. can all cause paint problems. Be careful.
