Title: RE: Swimming pools
Do not use stainless steel in a situation like this. A Swiss engineer used
stainless steel wires to support a suspended concrete slab over the pool and the
chlorine ate the wires causing the slab to collapse. The engineer lost his
license because of this.
Now, I'm confused. I have a swimming pool and spa in the back yard, and another spa in the side yard off of the master bedroom. Both have large stainless steel filters. There are also a number of stainless steel fittings. The rule seems to be: If it isn't PVC (plastic) or copper, then it's stainless steel. I probably use about 200# of chlorine every year. Most of the plumbing and equipment have at least ten years of service, yet there is little or no corrosion!
