PS: This installation was about 300 yards from the ocean.
THIS is something often seen by the ocean, i see it all the time , the salt in the air ,fog and land tend to do this if this was a pvc installation this wouldnt happen. There should be a restriction on installations near saltwater...
Yep, this sort of corrosion is a problem where I live as well. My back yard goes straight on to sand dunes and the beach, about 40 yd. max. The winter weather by England's North Sea coast brings spray and the salty atmosphere into everything.
