My water bath has small spots of rust. Any way to keep it from eventually rusting through?

I suggest that you buy a heavy duty sauce pan from a resturant supply with a lid. You can use the rack out of your HWB and possibly the lid. I just thought of that so I'm going home to see if my stuff will fit in my 20 qt pan. I got a pan on ebay new for $32 and free shipping. I probably should have bought three of them. I think it will take a long time for that aluminum pan to rust through. Is there any reason that type of pan wouldn't work?
