    corrosion issues?

    I have been thinking of installing a SWG. But I have some lingering concern about corrosion. Specifically, I have steel walls behind the vinyl liner. And I have encapsulated rails below the coping for the Coverstar autocover.

    I think I asked about this before, but I could not find the old thread if I did.

    Should I be concerned?

    The steel behind the vinyl will be ok. Where you stand to see an issue is where the skimmer opening is. Your cover track should be ok but the cover mechanism could suffer from the salt. Occasionally you will want to take a hose and rinse off the mechanism to remove the salt residue. I say this assuming it is an all aluminum mechanism.
