Steel plumbing

I have a hose clamp to keep my hose connected to my pump and it's made out of steel or stainless steel. I not sure If that would be alright or if there is a plastic replacement and I'm not talking about zip ties I've tried those before and I just get them tight enough

Plastic clamps are available .Check Foster and Smith in the fish plumbing section.I use them with no problems.You might be able to find them at a LFS. The stainless steel ones are going to rust.

Metal is a big no no when it comes to saltwater. It can cause problems from the start and they don't go away overnight. Look for plastic hose clamps.
