    Came across this material Flexi-liner. Any experience/info on anyone using this? Questions that immediately come to mind are 1) long term high temperature (180-190F) stability, 2) water vapor transmission to the tank containment device and corrosion issues, and 3) vapor transmission (O2) through the liner into the contained hot water and internal system corrosion from oxygen.

    You can add how well does it handle and ship. (This is more important than I ever thought it could be!)
    And of course, cost.

    Many use EPDM because it is so inexpensive, easy to get and they are willing to take the risk of a failure of the liner
    or hx due to liner breakdown.

    Any liners that are for industrial applications, may or may not bring into question their longevity.

    Been there...
