How to avoid pitting corrosion
The best way to maintain stainless steel fittings from being affected by pitting corrosion is by rinsing them with fresh water. Especially mentionable when it hasn’t rained for a while!
A major factor in this is time. The longer the salty liquid stays, the more aggressive/quicker the reaction will be.
