Question Can't Drill, now what?

Well, I was going to drill the back of my DT this summer but after doing all the tests I could find, I find out that all the glass is tempered so drilling is out. Now I need to find another way to install and use larger overflow plumbing to feed the sump. I have an undersize CPR overflow box and would like to get away from that all together. The flow just isn't enough. Anyone out there have some super ideas for me? My pump will do 900 gph for return. Thanks in advance.

Pretty much left with no ither choice than to do a hob overflow. Looks a bit messier than in my opinion. Or you can take this opportunity to swap out or upgrade.

Your asking for trouble even trying a over the top overflow, save yourself a lot of heart ache and use this as an opportuniy to upgrade.
