Both styles of livestock tanks should last for years with proper care and no abuse. My galvanized steel water tanks that I am using are over 15 years old.
Subsequently, question is, do galvanized water troughs rust? 7) Galvanized Water Trough Planter Beds Raised Even Higher These troughs sit on concrete blocks. If troughs sit in water too often, the bottoms could rust faster, though theyll still last for many years.
Additionally, can you paint a galvanized stock tank?
Galvanized metal is difficult to paint because its coated with a layer of oil to prevent white rust. Alkyd and oil-based paints may seem to stick at first, but the oily layer eventually sheds the paint.
Do stock tanks have drains?
As they transfer and move the stock tank water, they keep the water from getting too hot, prevent algae and other buildup, and prevent mosquitoes from breeding. Our stock tanks come with spigots for easy drainage. Of course, pool chemicals will also help keep the water clean.
