Ya think?
Ill be happy if fix works. Uve worked with plastics ?

Yes, I have worked with plastics before.

This is not a typical sump. Being that the acrylic pane is on the interior portion of the pvc sump. If memory serves me correct, advanced acrylics hot welds pvc around the acrylic pane and the PVC sump. It will be hard to put either a square or round rod to butt up against both pieces of acrylic and pvc, and still have enough surface area for a solid joint with the solvent. PM and I will give you my number so we can chat.
