    Corrosion or lack thereof on above ground pools

    I'd like to hear what forum participants think about the risk of corrosion for an above ground pool with aluminum walls, plastic rails and a coated steel frame running a modern low salinity SWG.

    Some AGPs have warranties that say no. Personally, I have had them in the past and they worked fine but the salt water is corrosive to certain materials. Even if it didn't void my warranty I would not get one again. I find chlorine from the bottle easier to deal with and when I overfill the pool, I don't have to deal with adding more salt.

    Welcome. Generally speaking, we see very few issues with it. If warranty is a concern for you...check it carefully
