Tanked in Lemont

Inbox:

I wanted to quickly reach out on behalf of Animal Planet's series Tanked to let you know this coming week (April 21st at 9pm e/p) a local tank will be featured in an episode based right out of Lemont!

Go on.

I'm not sure if you're familiar with Tanked or if you caught any of last season but season two dunks viewers into the rowdy, family-owned business of Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM), one of the country's leading and most successful builders of aquariums.

Okay . . .

ATM is led by brothers-in-law, business partners, best friends and rivals, Wayde King and Brett Raymer, and is housed in a state-of-the-art, cavernous facility located in the center of Sin City. ATM literally has created thousands of enormous, jaw-dropping aquarium builds and conceptual tanks for ordinary joes and high-profile clients alike. This season, the guys must wade into the deep end to come up with creative solutions for some of the most outrageous and challenging builds they've ever tackled from a mobile school bus tank to a functional pinball machine tank and everything in between.

I'll bite - no pun intended. Especially given that the pinball machine tank is in the Lemont episode. Let's take a look.

TANKED: FISH OUT OF WATER [Pinball & Robot Tank]
World Premiere Saturday, April 21, at 9 PM (ET/PT)

"Wayde and Brett stop in Chicago to meet Jed, a gamer and pinball enthusiast. Jed needs a tank that stands-out in his old-time game room of pinball machines. Brett suggests creating a tank that resembles and functions like a pinball machine. Jed is overjoyed at the idea; however, Wayde is overwhelmed by the amount of things Brett hasn't taken into consideration.

"Back at the shop, Robbie Redneck is less than optimistic when the guys reveal their plans. Both tanks require parts that are extremely expensive and hard to come by. Can the ATM team deliver on its promises and create tanks that put new-school twists on some old-school ideas?"

I think they can.
