    Patio cover options with saltwater pool

    I'm looking at options for a patio cover. It will be right next to the pool. I would like a metal patio cover that is galvanized, but concerned about rust. Wood is my next option. Opinions? Thanks in advance!

    Yes, I have searched, but found nothing specific about galvanized steel in close proximity of the pool.

    I would stay away from galvanized. I would get aluminum if possible.

    I used Ondura on the pool hut and on the screen porch. I got it at Lowes. Pretty good stuff, lightweight, easy to work and easy to patch after a hail storm. Quite a few pics in my pool thread, link in sig.
