The Poly Alloy connections - Are they Alloy with a Poly coating? Trying to determine if they could be used with salt water aquariums and not leach anything including copper into the water - same as PVC parts.
All our fitting are only certified and suggest to be used with potable water. This product is made of Acrudel type material. We would not recommend using this with your aquarium.
