I have probably 10 metal water tanks I am always hauling around. Seems like they develop leaks. I bought a bucket of bentonite. When I seal a tank up I have thrown in a couple buckets of badger dirt (clay) and then also a small amount of the bentonite that seems to help. Any body do it different?

As I've seen the rust spots start on the outside I've used that silver fibered roof covering that is like a thick paint with pretty good results. What about that stuff you see advertised on TV that they build the air boat out of?? I know they sell the tape and the paint version in Home Depot around here.
That's why I've changed all my tanks over to the hard plastic ones.
