    Stainless steel ladder and salt pool?

    Just having the finishing touches done on our new pool. They came today with the ladder and it is stainless steel when we had requested a PVC ladder. The pool guys says it is stronger stainless steel than the usual. How long can we expect it to last before it starts to corrode? I don't believe it's stronger stainless steel and I think he just forgot to get a PVC ladder.

    The better grades of stainless steel will be just fine in a SWG pool. There are some lower grades of stainless that do have problems, but they don't tend to be used for pool equipment any more in the US.
