    See the following for some technical info on linings for storage tanks. EPDM is frequently mentioned in posts as a suitable liner. It seems to be readily available from suitable choices. Note that 180F is the upper limit stated in this article for EPDM. I have no info on availability, prices or procedure to apply of other tank liners.

    The Tarm boys do not recommend temps above 170 on the STSS tanks.
    They're beginning to see failures
