Hi All, I work in the pump rental industry, and I am designing a new pump that will be used for pumping ground water out of a construction site. This particular pump will be used in coastal areas (i.e. Florida) where the gound water could be brackish. The pumps we are using now have carbon steel components, and we are obviously having corrosion problems with these parts. What types of materials would be best to use that would be both cost effective and be resistant to cloride corrosion cracking and other seawater based corrosion? Water temperature would be ambient, 50-70F.
