    Nicks on steel tanks

    I have small nicks on my Faber steel tank that have a small amount of surface rust. It is important to remove the rust and repaint?

    Thanks!

    How deep and how long is the nick? There are limits on that before you must condemn a cylinder.

    Yes, you should clean the rust up and repaint it, ZRC makes a good zinc paint for that.
