Forum Title: Steel Post Corroding By Pool
Steel Support Posts By Pool Corroding got a client with an open beam over-hang right by the pool the wood ledger is supported by 2-1/2 inch steel posts , cemented into the pool curb . all of them are severely rusting out at the bottom because of the chlorine .( I`m sure most of you have seen this) she wants them replaced with stainless steel posts .I`m thinking its over-kill. she has one replaced with galvanized ,but its rusting a bit too. any thoughts of installing the steel or galvanized , but first sleeving it with a typical pvc pipe to prevent the rusting ? that sleeve could also go right into the cement . or will I be able to put a rust-proof primer and paint that will actually hold up over the years . I don`t think I`ve even seen metal posts by a pool that weren`t rusted out on the bottom any ideas?
