I have since washed the tank, sanded it, put on a new hose, and painted it with two coats of the best (and, alas, most expensive) paint I know.

If I had put in a pipeline, it would have been plastic pipe. This is highly symbolic. Some day plastic may drive metal out of sugaring, just as metal once drove wood.
