No, a pool using a salt water sanitization system will not cause premature corrosion of the steel reinforcing rods within the gunnite. The steel reinforcing rods are fully encased in gunnite and are not exposed to any water at all. The only way water could corrode the steel rods would be if the gunnite cracked allowing water to leak out and into the gunnite. Hope this helps ...

How long can a stainless steel material withstand corrosion?

Corrosion is a gradual destruction of metal by chemical reactions mixed with the environment. How long stainless steel can withstand corrosion depends on the thickness of the metal.

What are corrosion reactions for stainless steel?

whichever substance that neutralises or reacts with chromic oxide will corrode stainless steel. search for chemical properties of chromic oxide. stainless steel is considered as a "corrosion resistant alloy" that means that is more resistant than the common steel to corrosion. a typical corrosion reaction is when stainless steel is incontact with fluid that contains chlorides, like seawater, and small pit are produced.

What is the metal that speed up corrosion?

Any metal that is higher than iron in the electrochemical series coupled to it will speed up the corrosion. As an example, a copper pipe in contact with steel will accelerate the corrosion of the steel.

How do you reinforce steel?

You can reinforce steel by either decreasing the span length or increasing the stiffness of the steel. Reinforcing steel improves safety and design effectiveness and decreases deflection.
