Siphoning Between FW and SW

Should I use two siphons? Or could I use one siphon for both tanks?
If I rinse all the saltwater off the siphon, I could also use it for my freshwater tank, correct? Or will it be too much hassle to use one siphon for two tank?

More details:
I will use a water pump to get new SW from rubbermaid trashcan to SW tank.
But I need to use the siphon (Aqueon water changer) to get the tap water to my FW tank.

I'm thinking I could rinse the salt out of the siphon by pushing tap water from faucet to toilet.
Kind Regards,
