    Aluminum black water tank??

    I have an opportunity to get a nice holding tank. It is aluminum and was originally made and used as a fresh water tank. I am thinking of using it as a black water tank but don't know if aluminum is safe or advisable to use for this purpose. Any info is appreciated.

    Plastic is better. Aluminum is better than steel and will last a few years though. If its clean inside dump in 2 quarts of polyester plastic resin (with hardner) and kick it around the back yard for an hour. This coats the inside and it will last for many years. Seal all the openings with masking tape. Used to do this with steel tanks when No Discharge laws first came on the books.
    The fries are cold so we gave you extra.
