Is there any risk of premature corrosion of the steel reinforcing rods if salt water is used in a gunite pool?

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 ...

Gunite, cement does not rust.

Concrete reinforcing steel is commonly used in bridges, buildings, skyscrapers and road construction. Reinforcing concrete with steel significantly increases its strength in an economical and safe manner.
