    Stainless Steel Light Niche with Saltwater Chlorinator pool?

    I noticed the pool builder is using Pentair Stainless Steel light niches for my new pool build.

    They haven't installed them yet, but I wanted to check here to see if this is a bad idea since I will have a saltwater chlorinator too.

    The part#'s are Pentair 78232500.

    Thanks!

    The newer ones that are sold these days should be fine. There are many different grades of steel and nearly every pool parts manufacturer in the US has switched all their steel parts to a grade that is fine with SWG levels of salt.

    Pentair said the same as Jason. Their stainless niche is perfectly fine in SWG pool.

    Just need to be sure no stray current.
