I helped a friend with a copper tank recently - here is what he did
We started with draining, removing and cleaning it. After plugging the outlets and filler neck, we used copper abrasive pads (chore-boy?) after sanding it lightly on the outside to remove the oxidation.
After that, it was just ever so lightly rough to the touch. We applied 3 coats of epoxy to the outside and reinstalled, which stuck nicely to the freshly roughed surface.
It seems like it will be as tough as any other tank over time. The only thing I would see as a problem now is getting corrosion inside the tank.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.
