Seeking advice

So, it’s summer and the pool is open. Last summer I was in the Bon4 silicone device and didn’t have to worry about the chlorine. 

What are the risks, if any, of going swimming / lounging in the pool with the Steelheart? Will the chlorine damage the stainless or the brass of the lock? 

Thanks in advance!

  1. I was a pretty elite swimmer. I’ll avoid going into details; suffice it to say I swam against Michael Phelps years ago. My Steelworxx devices are all powder coated due to a nickel allergy, but for what it’s worth, I have had no trouble spending a lot of time with them in very chlorinated water. I’m guessing that at some point the oil in the lock will break down, but I haven’t yet had the need to oil it up, so you should be fine.

    The bigger problem is finding the right swimsuit so that it doesn’t cling to the device when getting out of the water or allow someone to see through a suit that’s wet but isn’t clinging. And, of course, you’re not going to be able to wear a speedo. The closest you can hope to get to competition gear is wearing a polyester training (drag) suit, which tend to be loose fitting for the purpose of creating more drag for training. Even with one of these suits you’ll need it to be several sizes larger than you’d normally wear. Mine is three sizes larger, even with a pretty small Looker02, and just tied pretty tight around the waist with no speedo underneath.
