Here are a few tips up front: the most important thing when welding aluminum, especially used or old aluminum, is cleanliness. What I recommend here is a hot air dryer, a wire brush, acetone and a cloth so that you can remove the dirt really well and prepare it perfectly for welding!






For normal aluminum, I would simply recommend ALMG5 as the welding rod.

When welding aluminum, I always think that the green tungsten electrode works best, if you weld up to 220 A approximately, a 2.4 is also sufficient. Anything above that I would take a 3.2.

If you have pitting, try not to weld it at all, in my experience the quickest way is to cut out the area and fit a new plate. You will see that you will be able to seal the tank more quickly at this point, which is also the aim.
