Anyone have one they want to sell? I pulled my mag 7 out today and it had rust on the screws and inside. I need to replace it ASAP. If someone has another pump that is quiet and does 700+ GPH let me know.

I have the vinyl screws (same size, that works great) to replace the rusted out ones, since the same thing happened to me, however, it destroyed my tank!!!

Let me know how and when you would like to meet, if you want them. I will bring the screws with me to work tomorrow just in case.

if you submerge stainless steel it should not rust, if you expose it to air and saltwater at the same time(partially exposed when water level drops) it will rust.
I've run a mag 5 on my 65 gal tank for 4 years with no problems.
replacing the screws with nylon is a good idea

Im think maybe replacing the Mag with another mag isnt the best of ideas.. I should probably go for something different quiet one or one of the GENX submersibles..

Actually that is not true, unfortunately for me. Check out this thread.

If you look at the RC thread that Dean posted in the thread, stainless steel comes in many forms and most can rust.

Needless to say my tank was partially destroyed from the rust. After removing the pumps, many water changes and polyfilter being run, my tank is bouncing back.
