how can you tell a pump is saltwater safe, if it does not say on the pump and you dont have a box that it came in. it says only use w/ water.
it has a web address www.pondbasics.org
the maker is peaktop technologies
model # MD200
if any body knows any info on this will you let me know please

That link doesn't work. I've tried twice as well as typing the URL.

What does it cost and how much water does it move?

Someone may try to use it for an oil or misc liquids of that sort. IMHO, if it says water, then it should be well protected from rusting because it is designed to be in water. I'm gonna say it's fine...

Have any pics?

It's not that really big thing in the tank is it?

you don't have any pics of the pump solo? or a pic of the box?

i'm going to go with safe, if it is a submersible pump and not a pump you're makin submersible.
