    SWG and Aluminum Furniture

    In everyones experience, will the salt in my pool erode Aluminum Furniture? I am asking, because my last cheap metal set basically rusted away to nothing.

    In general, aluminum should be more resistant to corrosion then steel, though I would think how it is coated is probably more important. Was the corrosion near fasteners or all over the metal?

    Were you putting the furniture in the pool, like on a tanning shelf? I have a hard time imagining enough pool water getting on the furniture any other way. We have aluminum furniture and salt water and have had no problems.
