Would it be rude to make the guy wait while I test the tank for leaks?

I am hoping to buy a used aquarium off of craigslist but I have heard stories of people who got cheated and were sold leaking fish tanks. When the guy brings it to my house would it be rude to make him wait while I fill the tank with water and wait about 10 minutes so that I can make sure the tank doesn't leak? I will be up front with the guy about the fact that I plan to do this and that the exchane may take up to half an hour? I will be doing it before I hand over the $100 for the tank. I am not about to be cheated out of my $100!

  • I don't think it is rude, if he isn't trying to scam you, he won't think it is rude either.
