|Corrosion Resistant Materials, suited for working around salt water|
There are three types of materials; steel, aluminum and plastics, that are ideally suited for working around salt water.
Typically plastics are very resistant to saltwater corrosion. Some of them may also become brittle over time, but in general, the plastics like polyethylene, are very good.
A breakdown of types of plastics follows:
A good example of non-corrosive materials are plastic or nylon cable ties cable ties are one of our favorite things to use as you'll see in our handy items section. These can be purchased at most hardware stores like Home Depot and you can use them to secure items such as powerhead and heater chords near your aquarium.
You don't want to use rubber bands around your power chords, because within about 30 days they will start to deteriorate. If it's better to use cable ties in that situation. We use tons of cable ties in many different colors and sizes and we had a recommended to get a variety pack of cable ties sizes.
Plastic cups and plastic bins that are used to make some salt water are handy to have. One of the most convenient containers is a 5 gallon bucket.
If you buy a container of salt mix, it often comes in 5 gallon buckets. They often come with a screw on lid, and those are great for water changes, and holding fish for quarantine or even making dump buckets or filters and stumps.
