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 ...
