The shanks on those screws are 1/2" long, which is just barely long enough considering that they have to go through the aluminum profile before entering the plastic frame. That's why I decided to...

I used adhesive caulking from Lowes/HD, I don't remember the brand any more. Any adhesive caulking would do as well.

I see what you mean now. I think you mean using a heater in the grant instead of a RIMS tube. That would work. I suppose you could have the drain at the top of the grant so that it is full all the...
