Has anybody tried replacing the pump housing screws with stainless steel marine screws? I really don't want rust in the tank. I guess I can always pull it out and plumb it external.
ive never run one externally but have heard many times that they leak.....as far as the rust thing goes......look a little closer, i bet you find a touch of rust on those pumps youve had a while. Ive never seen them rust up bad but they all do a little bit. But, like i said, i dont think enough to really matter.kwjones said:hmm...I have a Mag 3, two Mag 7's and a Mag 24. Haven't replaced a screw, none have rusted. The Mag 24 is plumbed externaly and hasn't leaked. The Mag 24 has been in operation for over a year...
You do have to be carefull that you don't over tighten the screws and crack the housing.
