Hi Rebecca,

Whenever you want to acquire any rust resistant equipment, 
such as cabinets or other, check if the metal parts are 
made of INOX 316.
Rust resistant materials, that I know about, include:

- Copper (the best marine submerged water pumps are made 
of) = very expensive.

- Titanium (SCUBA equipment such as SCUBA watches, 
regulators, etc) = much more epensive than copper but 
basically Rust free at all times

- Marine wood (used on Saltwater Fish pond diques and 
other).

- INOX 316. Cheaper and very durable.

- Plastic. Even cheaper but less durable.


If I was you I would sherach for a Plastic/INOX 316 
equipment, just in case.

It will save you lots of trouble, specially rust.

Tiago
