Yip! Know the feeling!

Thats Why I'm not Planing on running any Powerheads
in my Display! All the currents will be made from my
return pumps Outlet! A monster of a Pump! Thinking of
runing a Jacuzi pump as a Return to the display!

Lost to many creatures with powerheads!

Be careful the jacuzzi pump might not be up to salt water standards, is there any copper in it? is there stainless steel? if yes is the stainless marine grade? Salt water is evil stuff and will chew it's way through normal pumps very quickly.

Well You get Your Saltwater Pool Pumps!
Shouldn't these Pumps be up to standard
to be used for saltwater?

But I Know what you mean by the salt chowing
the pumps! I had A so caled stainless steel pump
in my 4 footer for a long period not Knowing it's
being chowed by the water! after some time I
noticed the casing was totaly rusted away!

As long as you get an assurance that the pump is salt water safe go for it, but demand to see specifications not just accept their word.
