I bought a brand new sanborn 80 gallon about 6 months ago. After the first couple weeks of using it the water came out a little murky/rusty and has ever since. Im in south dakota where we definately have a wild climate and weather from -40 to 105 with 100% humidity. Im not worried about it. You would think they would coat the inside of the tanks from the factory but then I guess we wouldnt have to buy a new one ever I drain mine every day ( id forget once in a while and go 2-3 days with out draining) Ive been told there is an "automatic" drain system that you can install and it will let out a spurt of air every so often, might be somehting to look into....
