    Preferred pump shoe finish?

    Anyone experiment with different surface finishes on pump shoes. Such as a glass beaded finish vs a smooth finish via polishing or powder coating?

    Not really a big enough surface area to matter. Sanded smooth with 600 grit would be best.

    Thanks - I was going to bead blast it while I had it out. I like the idea of 600 grit-sanding front to back to keep scratches in line with water flow.
