Re: Water tanks (Inox Vs Galvanized steel)

I cut large access ports in my 4 aluminum water tanks( a total of 1500 liters) and laid down a fiber glass /epoxy tank inside including both sides of existing baffles . One at a time because it was a bear of a project and potable tank 'gelcoat' needs to go on fairly fresh substrate.Welded a 3/16 th by 2 Al inch strip around the cut out lid and tapped threads into tank to take the holddown bolts. Neoprene gasket and Bob's yer uncle .Other than working upside down with a full face mask and extension cord for days, nothing to it. and the finished result was definitely worth it.
