LOL Lots of people just repeat what someone else has said. LOL I am very guilty of that myself. However, I try to understand what they are saying and evaluate it before I regurgitate it.
Now, having said that, your comment about not holding up to salt water is a very good one that I hadn't considered.
Going to have to look into it a little more but, when I have taken the pond pumps apart to clean them it seams everything is plastic if I remember right. Might be a screw or two but I bet they are stainless steel which should stand up to SW
(doing an etching plant right now that uses a salt based solution. We are using all stainless steel for that very reason).
