water changer

I have a freshwater tank and i recently started up a saltwater tank and i was wondering if i could use the aqueon water changer to do water changes on both salt and freshwater tanks or would i need to get a seperate vac for the saltwater tank than the freshwater tank. New to saltwater, so any help would be great.
Thank you in advance.

There is no reason you can't use the same water changer for both fresh, and marine. After using it on the marine tank, just run some fresh water through it to rinse out the saltwater residue.

I have another question. A friend of mine gave me four 5 gallon water jugs that he use to use for saltwater a while back. They have been in his barn. I would like to know what i need to do to clean them before i take them to get ro water in them from the LFS.
