I think a lot of people under estimate the loads a properly built wood floor can take. 100 gallon fish tanks are not uncommon in homes and nobody seems concerned about that. That is 834 pounds just for the water, then you have the cabinet, glass tank, pumps, filter etc which easily add up to several hundred pounds. Total weight is probably pretty close to that 1100lbs.I see you have the Millrite (aka Rockwell). I am interested in those but I understand they weigh 1100lbs. My shop floor is wood so...maybe? I assume your floor is slab? I did not see pics of you moving it? Did you disassemble it for moving? What was that process? I am going through the same calculus you did about the PM 727, PM 30 , Millrite, etc.
A small twin size waterbed can weigh 1300lbs.
