    Reinforcing Floor

    I am working towards setting up a 235 gallon tank. I have a report from a structural engineer saying that I need to reinforce the floor. The first person that I talked to about doing the work said that he doesn't know of anyone in the Colorado Springs area that will do that type of job on such a small scale. Can anyone recommend a company that might be willing to do the work?

    You're going to be relegated to using a handyman.

    You should be able to reach out to the engineer and ask for a recommendation to support your floors.

    Home Depot sells floor joist jacks. On MASC there is a reefer that set up a 300 and used one

    I used a floor jack and a beam to bridge 4 joist to my foundation when setting up my 220. I used an online load calculator to make sure I was well within tolerance on pounds per square foot.

    Thanks for the feedback. I found someone (neighbor actually, but I'm new to the Springs) who can do it. Now to figure out how to actually do it.
