Looks SS to me . The aluminum one's generally have a green hard anodizing on them or some other color. Thats the way both of mine look .

I didnt think a magnet would attract to SS  ???

A new SS is easily a 1k . That is a score ! I found a new SS impellor at the pomona swapmeet with the matching wear ring for $100 and that was a score.

Stainless steel is ferrous to a point, so a magnet will lightly stick to it. Aluminum and bronze will not attract a magnet at all. I did see an aluminum impellor look a similar color before but it had some damage on the egdes and was very worn. Typically a used ss impellor will bring $350 - $450 on eBay and sellers generally price them around $500 at swap meets, that I've seen.

It's SS yall had me curious so I took it to a friend who works with Stainless in athe tech industry. He said no doubt. SO now to decide what to put the pump in. Anyone have a guess how different the Drake and the Berkley are? I mean how major is it to swap those out?
