    Quick question about salt pools,

    Does water splashed out of pools create salt lines on pools decks as water dries?

    wouldent salt corrode concrete decks, steel furniture on the deck?

    Ive been lurking these forums and learning a lot!

    Re: Quick question about salt pools,

    The salt level in a "salt pool" is very low. It's about the same as human tears. By comparison ocean water has over 10 times the salt. I never see any salt lines on the deck. Salt in any quantities can damage soft stone and cause corrosion in iron and carbon steel. But concrete and painted surfaces are safe.

    Agree. Not an issue at these low salt levels.
