Normally you would have two options 1 fix it 2 replace it. I am guessing the hole is not small? and being it was speared from the outside inward it may be difficult to pound out and then weld a patch on it? It will be likely easiest to replace the tank, I can think they would be that expensive?

NDT has a tank for me. I need to get time off to go get it. I want to do some sightseeing when I go. I looked all over the internet and could not find anyone who made the tank in plastic or steel. maybe someday they will but I don't think they do now.

Polyethylene plastic is impossible to glue. It can be welded. Yup welded. Hit YouTube for examples.

Used tanks won't be around forever so we might as well get the welding option figured out.
