Holding tank repair/replacement

I am attempting to repair/replace the holding tank on my boat. I have been advised about a coating that can be applied to the interior of the tank that will address the problem. KBS Coatings is the manufacturer and they say that it has been a successful resolution to a number of holding tank leaks. Has anyone had any experience with this product? Any comments appreciated, thanks.

Re: Holding tank repair/replacement

any coating that is applied through the holes/vents/inlets of an already used holding tank are of little value. Especially a plastic tank, as few coatings are stout enough to adhere, even to a new plastic tank. Metal tank is already compromised by sewerage, chemicals, rust/oxidation, etc....so that you will be coating the residue at best.

Unless you are dealing with a new tank and can rotate it throughout it's entire possible holding capacity, the coatings are marketing spin.

Your only solution is replacement

Try a Nature's Head or similar. It is the biggest advance to our sport since self steering.
