    Foutain pumps?

    Post by reefer87 on Mon Nov 21, 2011 1:59 am

    I was looking around for pumps and I noticed that home depot sales submersible pumps that have adjustable flow rates and fairly low priced. Any ideas or concerns?

    they are not rated for saltwater at all, they will corrode and leak oil/fluid into the tank
