    My supplier started giving me stainless steel circulators. He told me they are the same as bronze circulators. I suspect this is not true. For domestic water, can I use a stainless steel circulator?

    Stainless is fine for domestic

    Most of the major manufacturers are switching to an all cast iron or stainless casting product line.  This may be in line to comply with the "no lead" requirements but also streamlines their inventory.

    Just remember though many manufacuturers would have you believe differently, not all Stainlesss Steels are created equally and it is not indestrctable.  Many independant studies have proven bronze volutes to have better flow and wear charecteristics vs SS.
