Holding tank repair/replacement

I have a difficult to access aluminum holding tank seeping at the welds. I am considering an interior coating process sold by KBS Coatings. They are confident that their product will cure my problem, and I am seeking comments from anyone who has used it. If it works it would be a relatively simple solution to a difficult and expensive removal process. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Magic fortune cookie says: new Todd polymer tank is in your future. If you really want to make your own, maybe consider plywood and epoxy.

That stuff is made for automotive gas tanks. You'll never be able to get the insides of an aluminum holding tank clean enough for it to work.

When it comes to holding tanks, there's no good alternative to doing the job right. Anything else is just a matter of differing the disaster.
