Rena Filstar used in SW going to FW

My question is I picked up a XP4 which was used on a SW tank. Ive clean the inside and am getting new media, do you think I can get away with boiling the intake/outtake tubes in vinegar water or should I order a parts tray with a completly new intake/outtake? And also the tubes, can i soak in water? What do ya think?

I think you should be fine. A small amour of salt shouldn't hurt anything and any alge or bacteria that grows in salt wont in fesh water.
