Default My 5 gal sparging pot smells metalic. Problem?

I have to sparge 5 gallons of water. My friend let me borrow a 5 gallon steel pot that's in pretty rough condition. It has a metalic smell even after I cleaned it. Will this affect the water? My other option is to use a 3 gallon and two 1 gallon pots. I'd rather keep

If it were me, I wouldn't want to use that pot. Metallic is an awful flavor in beer. Not sure if it's salvageable but I'd probably let it soak for a while in some oxy clean or similar solution.

That looks like a pressure cooker pot. Get a different pot. 5 gallon pots are cheap...
