jabsco sea water pump advice

Yesterday I had my port side Perkins T6.3544M get hot.* I got it shut down in time.* Thank goodness for engine alarms.* I*suspect and hope that the problem is just the sea water pump giving up the ghost.** I don't know how* old the impellers are but I know I have put a tad over 100 hours of silt filled Mississippi water thru it on my trip home.

I see that there are two Jabsco replacement impellers available, neoprene and nitrile.* Nitrile is a bt more money but *I am more than willing to spend a couple more bucks for something as important as a cooling pump.

Any advice as to the difference?
