Raw water pump

Yet another question. I am replacing the raw water pump. On land I would use teflon thread tape on the 90 Degree elbow threads to make a good seal. Is it the same practice for raw water, or will it eat away the tape? I was also told that some use polyurethane caulk to make the seal, is that correct?
