A couple of months ago I got a steal on Craigslist from a guy in Baltimore for a 25 gallon heavy duty Polarware Stainless Pot for $75.00. It even had the original sticker still attached. I don't even have to tell you how excited I was when I discovered my 15 gallon Polarware false bottom fit this perfectly as well. I envisioned the possibilities of a huge mash tun, a huge hot liquor tank, a huge boil kettle, the versatility of this vessel was endless, I felt a bulge in my pants just thinking about it. After a few weeks later I decided to fill it with water to do a couple of measurements and much to my dismay I noticed several small "pin holes" that were "weeping" water. "WTF" !!! I thought stainless was extremely durable. Was this guy using it in a "METH LAB" or what? I was devistated. The pics don't show very well what may have happened here but can anybody explain what might have caused this? Is there any way to salvage this pot? I have read the article on red epoxy and even saw a can of spray sealer at Walmart that patches leaks in boats but I am at a loss on the best way to still make this a useable vessel. Any insight would be very much appreciated.
