    Well let see wome water in that thing already. I agree a sump will help, but I say don't go for it, because it gives you a better chance at not doing soo good and regardless of what biff thinks I'm winning this. MUHAHA J/k I would use a sump if it's available.

    I haven't ran into any 10 gal tempered tanks. I have drilled two 10 gal tanks and both drilled out great. The key is to keep it lubricated and use next to no pressure. It takes a bit, but be patient and don't try to hurry it up.

    You can make a new ten out of the two busted ones so you don't have to buy another......Or use the two good sides to get some more practice instead of trying to drill another right away.
