The use of stainless steel A1, A2, A4 or A5 (304 / 316) fasteners is prohibited because of their susceptibility to stress corrosion cracking. The best alternative for a durable connection is to choose PoolFIX fasteners. However, these coated articles are not resistant to everything, the use of heavy disinfectants such as hydrogen peroxide to disinfect are not a problem for PoolFIX quality, provided it is rinsed immediately with clean tap water. However, this is not always possible, which can cause the coating to "soften" and result in premature corrosion. To avoid this phenomenon, 1.4529 is used for the splash water zone of starting blocks and below the water line. This special type of stainless steel (much less sensitive to stress corrosion corrosion) is only available in bolts and nuts, not on screws. Since stress corrosion corrosion cannot be excluded, material 1.4529 should be replaced every 5 years. PoolFIX supplies both materials with certificate so you are assured of a safe choice.
"Registration and follow-up of renovation even more important."
The Quality Assurance Act has been in effect since 2022. This means concretely for the swimming pool industry: stricter construction supervision for new construction and renovation and a better liability scheme. The government is introducing a new system of quality assurance. The most important changes: If there are defects, the customer can force the contractor to fix the mistakes. Even if the customer does not discover these faults until later.

Most assemblies are assembled by using bolts, nuts and screws. When these fastener items are the weakest link, they will fail prematurely. Because thick protective coatings are difficult to apply, high-tech surface treatments are used for this purpose. This is not just limited to nuts and bolts, brackets and clamps can also be treated so that they can accomplish a long safe service life. PoolFIX® 5th generation fasteners have been developed specifically for swimming pool applications.
