316 VERSUS 304 GRADE STAINLESS STEEL WATERFALLS

316 VERSUS 304 GRADE STAINLESS STEEL WATER SPILLWAYS & FEATURES – IS IT WORTH THE EXTRA COST?

To a person who is not familiar with stainless steel, visually, the difference between 316 grade of stainless steel and 304 is easy to miss. However, in reality the difference between these two stainless steel alloys is huge.


What is the Difference Between 304 and 316 Grade?

The most basic difference between grade 304 and grade 316 stainless steel is that 316 tends to have more nickel and molybdenum in the mix.

Where grade 316 stainless proves superior is its increased corrosion resistance, particularly against chlorides and chlorinated solutions such as for Swimming Pool waterfall set ups. Grade 316 stainless is also particularly desirable for applications where exposure to salt is an issue.

So the big question is…Is it Worth the Extra Cost?

The inclusion of higher molybdenum does make grade 316 stainless steel a bit more costly compared to grade 304 material however is worth paying for, for piece of mind.

If you have an application with very powerful corrosives or relies on chlorides such as for swimming pool or coastal applications, then paying a premium for grade 316 stainless steel is definitely worth it. In such applications, 316 stainless will last many times longer than grade 304 stainless would - which can mean many extra years of useful life.

About salt cells, my view

lesme-97
Hi is this a genuine Davey cell? Because every pool shop I rang they don’t have a stock on EcoSalt 26 cell.

Cheers Les

 

Thank you for your question, I have now updated the oldish listing to be clearer. Kawana factory makes all the hard to find old and new cells at a competitive price as they are the source without the overheads of the multinatioals such as Davey, Waterco, Astral etc. Made in Australia with Ruthenium/ Titanium from the USA which is now about $1700 + a square metre The list price from Davey for this cell is Now $913, I just logged on to my Davey account and that is what it said! I just checked the spot price of Ruthenium US$270 per troy ounce, that is 11 times the price of silver! The only out you may have is to buy a standard Chlorinator, e.g a complete Saltmate chlorinator SMT120-28 gms/hr just $659, see my listing Item ID: 274358355713 Standard chlorinators have half the plates ruthenium printed as they do not reverse polarity making everything electrically simplier and robust. I know of old Clearwater units pushing 40 years although probably had 5 or 6 cells, they last longer! Hope this explains the situation, thanks again,

Thank you

Covid19

On top of the other issues the local pool and spa industry has been facing this summer (drought, fire, dust-storms and floods), a new threat arose in the new year: coronavirus.

The spread of the epidemic in Hubei province and further afield in China has led to disruptions to the supply chain of some essentials for the industry, notably pool equipment and chemicals.

Paul Simons, managing director of Lo-Chlor Chemicals, says the coronavirus is something very real and very concerning to the industry.

“The ripple effect I see coming from one region in China is completely unprecedented and something that should be a real concern for all of us,” he says.

“Many companies are affected from all sectors that rely heavily on manufactured parts, finished goods, chemicals and other elements that come directly out of China. While there are some local manufacturers left in Australia, our reliance on China is enormous and this is going to have an impact,” he says.

“I don’t think we will see the real effects here in Australia for another six to eight weeks, but the threat is real and we could see a number of key areas of our industry affected.”

Some of the chemicals affected include cal hypo, di-chlor and other chlorine based sanitisers, as well as balancing chemicals such as buffer and calcium chloride. Stabiliser is less of a concern as the season is coming to an end.

Simons says that regarding specialty chemicals, companies like Lo-Chlor manufacture their entire line locally so there won’t be issues regarding supply.

However, he says some chemical companies rely on overseas blends either provided as finished goods or in bulk tankers. These companies will have long term supply issues and will have to seek local sources or find themselves out of stock.

He says that the recent fires and dust storms have already put a strain on chemical supplies in Australia, and the effect of the coronavirus will compound those issues to an extent that is, at present, difficult to estimate.

Additionally coronavirus has led to concerns with responsibility and sanitisation in public pools. For advice see the coronavirus (Covid-19) resources from Department of Health .

Delivering in new ways

SPASA Australia has received a number of calls relating to both these topics, and CEO Lindsay McGrath says that this challenge comes on top of the drought, regulatory issues, the fires and the floods.

“Our new challenge is the coronavirus which is has stretched the Asia Pacific logistics capabilities with manufacturing and shipping delays, postponements and cancellations causing difficulties to supply,” he says.

However, McGrath says the pool and spa industry is in a better position than many other industries.

“Fortunately a diverse supply chain is available to pool and spa businesses,” he says. “Many industries don’t have such a range of suppliers, products and services that meet similar requirements.

“The variation in filtration, circulation and chemistry options are being utilised by many of our members. In times of hardship we are seeing more creativity than just swapping one brand of product that is out of stock to another supplier.”

He says an opportunity lies in delivering the outcome for the customer in a way they didn’t expect.

“I would encourage all proprietors to lend an understanding ear to their supply network, and to view this hardship as the opportunity it is – to educate your teams on the alternatives, get feedback from them, and provide a good result for the customer.

“The customer is looking for a solution, not just a quick fix or direct replacement, and there may even be the opportunity to upsell them on a more efficient or higher quality product.”
