The best stuff for a steel water tank is two pack epoxy, BUT it costs a lot more than bitumen AND it has to be applied to a clean, suitable surface, and bitumen is not a suitable base coat, nor is it easy to remove every trace.

When this came up a while ago I said that bitumen paint is no longer approved for drinking water tanks. Someone replied with a link to a manufacturer's website or data sheet saying their product was not certified for use in new tanks, but was ideal for recoating tanks previously painted with bitumen. I can't now remember which manufacturer/product that was, but a forum search might find it.

A google search was quicker

thanks .every one i will get some rylards i think thats my best option thanks again 

We used it on the boat we bought last year. Tank had been very neglected and took several days to clean up properly. Rylards went on beautifully and has been very successful. Tank is still looking immaculate (emptied and dried it over the winter).
