Re: Plastic or Aluminum for water tanks?
Had aluminium for years. Altho told it was a special alloy for tanks, pitting was a problem and may be a connection with Alzheimer's although I forget where I heard that . Couldn't re /re tanks as I'd closed the boat in around them. Finally cut big access panels in the top of all four tanks (1500 litres total) and epoxy/glassed everything including the baffles (then two coats of potable type resin) Truly a bitch of a job but apart from the crick in my neck and getting the cat out of a tank, it was worth it.If I were building today,SS would be my only choice.
