    I'm a bit confused, is there any difference between a fresh water and saltwater pump. I was at a LFS to buy a pump and the person who helped me said that the spesific pump is saltwater ready, i asked him to explain but he couldn't tell me. Has it got something to do with the shaft or casing. I know the pumps i use has ceramic impellers but besides that is there something else i'm missing.

    some pumps come with ceramic shafts, titanium shafts, stainless shafts....stainless will rust

    some fresh water pumps also come with a stainless casing on the impelloer magnet itself which rusts
