So I want to clean my Barracuda pump and will replace the seals while i'm at it. It says to use a non hardening silicone material. What is a good product to use? Just regular aquarium silicone or what?

tank sealant (silicone) is mentioned in the Reeflo instructions

Thanks. Thats what I ended up using. Glad I took it apart, the spring mechanism thingy for the seal was completely rusted out and I also found a pretty big hermit crab shell stuck near the impellor. After putting it back online I ended up dialing back the pump as there was too much flow. That pumps been in action for 3 years and I did'nt notice any lost flow. Guess I don't pay as much attention as I thought.
