    I would use stainless steel on everything associated with the pool. Can post a picture of the base?

    The pump doesn't always, or even usually, get secured to the base. Nearly all of the time it is just fine simply sitting there. If you do secure it, use stainless steel.

    Mine just sits there on a pre-fab pad. It's not attached to anything except the pipe.
