I'd say, find out who put the salt in and kick is @$$. Then let the idiot vacuum out your tank, clear out your pump, etc. I've never heard of that happening before, not sure what to do to fix that. I'd say pull the tank and flush it and the pump, then push some air through all the fuel lines to see if you can blow out anything left in them. Wow, that's gotta suck!
