I would've taken the new one. Totally unacceptable in my opinion. They should've sent a new one and let you keep that one or send you a shipping label and have FedEx pick it up from your house.

WW should pay to send the tank back to them - no questions asked.

I just wanted to give anyone ordering a tank from WW to crack it opened as soon as you get it. Mine was shipped with standing water inside. This of course, caused some rust to occur inside the tank. I ...
