5x Casco Shop Racks, Aquariums, LED Lights, Sumps & Pumps

Description: I have for sale 5 Casco shop racks. These were previously used in a large chain pet store and recovered when they had a refit. I have had these a few years now, and am now in need of the storage space - hence the sale.

They are black in colour, ad each measures 220x130x58 (HxWxD). 4 of the racks have 3 rows which are divided in to 3 tanks (ie 9 equal sized tanks in each rack) and the other rack has two larger display tanks. The tanks that are divided in to 3 measure 124x38 (cm - wxd)and are 40cm high at the back and 33 cm at the front (they are higher at the back for the overflow plumbing). The 2 larger tanks are 124x38 (wxd cm)and are 60cm tall at the front and approx. 69cm at the back.
All of the tanks have predrilled water inlets & outlets and are designed to be used as a centralised system.
I have given the tanks a first round of lime scale cleaning - could do with a second (although the lime scale is above the water line when the tanks have water in them and so it wouldn't be seen anyways). Otherwise they are in pretty good condition - I bought them originally with the intention of using them in my own shop.

The filter pumps were all working when they were removed. When we were dismantling the racks we had to cut the pipe work with a hacksaw to remove the tanks from the metal racks. All of the fittings are present although you will need to replace the hose pipe at the back of the tanks to connect up the centralised system.

The lighting is LED and comes with the strip lights and power transformers. I have noted that some of the lights are not working (I have not looked in to if it is the bulb / transformer / simply a fuse).

All of the racks have sumps included, although they will be sold without sponges / filter media.
I also have the light electrical units for the tanks from when they had bulbs (now LED) although the wires have been cut to the unit.

The systems also had a UV filter system built in. As the UV bulbs need to be replaced regularly to keep their disease battling effectiveness, if you did choose to use this I would suggest replacing the bulb, but the electrical starters, pipe work etc are all there. Both of these will of course be included if you wish to take them.


I also have a 6th rack, which is again black in colour, and has the sump/pump etc. The racks are set up to hold 3 rows of tanks. The 3 tanks in these rows have been broken in transit. The buyer is more than welcome to take this equipment too, although as it is damaged I'm not including it in the 'main' listing, and will understand if you don't want to waste space in you van with a broken rack.
As the racks are disassembled have some photos to hopefully show you the condition of the front racking.

Buyer to collect from Kettering, Northants. As a guide it took us 3 trips in a Renault Master van to transport all 6 racks, so a large van will be required. Collection must be made on one day. The racks are dusty from storage.
You are welcome to visit the tanks before making an offer by prior arrangement only.

I am in need of clearing the storage space, and am looking for around 2,500 for the lot, although please email me with sensible offers.

I given details as honestly as I can, however these are to be sold as seen with no refunds/returns.
