The only metal the water comes in contact with as far as I know is the impeller's magnetic base.Hi all - just wondering... would there be a concern with rust within the internal components of a Eheim Classic canister filter if it was used in a saltwater tank?
Thank you. I'm not using it on saltwater - it's just that the person before me did, so I was just wondering what effect that may have had on the canister. I opened it up and checked the impeller and it seems ok. I tried running it and it does make a bit of noise, but that could be just wear and tear and I may need to replace the impeller in future anyways.The only metal the water comes in contact with as far as I know is the impeller's magnetic base.
You sure you want to use an Eheim for SW?
