Does your salt pool rust your stainless steel handrails?

June 18, 2008

I'm installing a saltwater pool and have been advised (by people who don't have them) that the salt will rust the stainless steel handrails and diving board stand. I called SR Smith and Interfab and their reps suggested I go with powder coated (painted) parts. Powder coating does not last forever, either, and I don't want to hassle with repainting if the bare stainless won't be a problem.

Anybody out there with real world experience willing to clue me in?
