StainLESS is not stainPROOF. I wasn't disagreeing with you. Or was
that over your head? There's no single answer to all your other
questions as it would depend on the grade of stainless steel. Some of
that crap from china barely even qualifies as stainless.
Geez, relax relax already--previous poster is agreeing with you.
He said stainLESS. As in bullet RESISTANT.
BTW, OP can find an authoritative answer here
(but not 'till next year--site's apparently down for maintenance)

Assuming that the designer spec'ed the correct material for the
application to begin with, the most common corrosion problems occur
after welding or machining. Even if the correct WFM was used, either
process will leave a surface that's much less corrosion resistant than
Google "passivation" and you'll probably find the answers you're
Well does stainless rust it depend where is use so answer
could be yes and no, in very hot and humid area yes
stainless could rust and very heavily depend on concentration
of oxygen in immediate area, less oxygen quicker and more
rapidly rust will take effect, also depend what grade
of stainless it is I would suggest that you ask that
question to some one that is expert in metallurgy
good luck from Dido
There is actually no such thing as true stainless steel. It's a
common mis-conception. There are over 150 different types of
"stainless teel" though they say, so go figure hahaha
I would buy some rust buster to solve your boiler problem :P
