Stainless Steel
Can a Stainless steel clamp be used in a sump?

no. they are made from cheap stainless and will corrode and rust over time (yes cheap stainless will rust)

BTW use a zip ties or they do make plastic clamps

Thanks.. I thought so, but it's been a long time since I used them.

I'd use zip ties or plastic hose clamps for submerged stuff. Those marine grade stainless hose clamps are anything but. Cheapest stainless money can buy :)

Yep, zip ties are a reefer's best friend. :)
