    Patio Furniture

    Any suggestions on where to shop or of outdoor furniture that will hold up to saltwater best? Beginning to look and review prices.

    Re: Patio Furniture

    Are you planning on keeping the furniture in the pool? Seriously unless you are on the shorel of an ocean, salt isn't a concern.

    Re: Patio Furniture

    Actually, maybe. ️ I was hoping to find two lawn chairs that I don't have to worry about if I leave them on the tanning shelf. Also, my current furniture has already created some stains on our concrete patio from rust. Our 2 year old $400 grill too. Not sure what's caused it but I figured salt won't help.

    There is heavy duty plastic furniture, but it is very expensive.

    Other than that, just treat it as disposable after a couple of years.

    Re: Patio Furniture

    I can treat it as disposable but I'm more worried about stains on the decking.

    I have had cast aluminum furniture for ten years. To avoid rust stains just avoid steel. There's lots of plastic and aluminum furniture available.

    Polywood furniture is nicely heavy, weathers well, and won't blow into the pool

    Pretty sure you could leave em on the sun ledge too.

    Re: Patio Furniture

    I have all polywood furniture and LOVE it! It is a bit pricey but durable and the only metal is stainless steel screws so no staining. Rinses off with the water hose and comes in a variety of colors.

    ^True...friends of mine on the lake have a complete set and after 10 yrs hasn't weathered a bit...so the up side of the price is longevity

    Re: Patio Furniture

    Have you seen these loungers? Wendy, who just finished her pool a month or so ago, had posted about them. They are completely plastic. At least 2 members have these on their sun shelf. I got mine from Amazon for $100. Can't remember the name right now, but could look it up if you are interested. image.jpg

    Re: Patio Furniture

    End of the season. Now is the time to shop for patio furniture. Too bad the choice is limited, but you can get some real bargains. Last year I bought four really nice market umbrellas for $49 each. I saw the same ones this year for $150 each (even in the same store).

    You might consider the cheap ones and just coat the legs in plasti dip to prevent contact staining
