Once I found the coating I wanted, I decided to improve the basic design by adding cross beams on the side with bumpers to keep the platform in place. Since it is a platform on stilts, a basic platform will tend to move when larger turtles mount it. These bumpers eliminate this problem, keeping the platform centered and away from the sides of the tank. Then I wanted more support for the ramp so that it doesn't break under the repeated stress of a larger turtle climbing.A tilted joint has solved this problem. Finally, I didn't want the pvc to fill with water, algae, bacteria and food particles, so I sealed the joints and added caps to the feet and bumpers. I'm going to do these as orders come in, because every turtle tank is different. Tell me the specifications of your tank (deep x width x height) and tell me how far from the top you would like your turtles to bask.
You will want to make sure they can't get out. I will create your custom platform, give it time for it to heal and be aquarium ready, then safely and safely pack it for shipping and send it to you. It will be shipped with the top part assembled securely (the slate is loose to allow you to clean it easily) and the legs ready to insert.
An instruction sheet is included. Always rinse before adding to your tank. Please send pictures for me so I can see your new platform in action. I look forward to working with you to make a new home for your bombed friends.
