    I have inherited a large (6' x 8' x 10') water tank built in 1969
    located in a very remote location.I am experiencing considerable
    flaking of the concrete primarily on the interior and in select sites
    on the exterior. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to how to go
    about repairing this problem. I am not the least bit concerned about
    appearance but am very concerned about the effects any repairs may
    impart upon my water supply.

    Sounds like the tank was never given a proper water seal coat. You will
    want something that bonds chemically with the concrete or perhaps an epoxy
    paint.

    Two companies that may be helpful furnishing the products you are looking
    for are: Fox Industries in the Baltimore region
    http://www.foxind.com/index.htm

    and Sika USA http://www.sikaconstruction.com/ contact either or both and
    ask for tech support. My experience with both companies over the past 30
    yrs. has been on the positive side.
