  5. My first attempt at posting worked so well I'm going to have another go. Can any of you wise sages tell me, do i need a special type of blacking for my water tank, I only use it for washing, cooking, and cleaning, not drinking, or will ordinary black bitumen paint be OK. Thanks in advance, I have great confidence in you guys. Old Al
