Are you looking for external or submersible? Drs. Foster and Smith have a pretty decent selection of pumps at pretty good prices.

I have seen people use those plastic sump pumps to transfer salt water. I guess for utility use (cleaning/PWC's) they would be ok. Maybe the smaller fountain pumps could work for an external skimmer supply?

I would not be afraid if I need one to use it on SW all that can happen is it will quit running, most bof those pumps are made for either, I did not see any thing that said FW only

Im pretty sure if a pump can pump water it can pump salt water. Unless its like some micro DC pump that has some crazy specific tolerances..
