Actually, M, there is only one element that rusts. Iron. Other metals oxidize in their own way, but that familiar red orange is from ferrous materials.

Your best bet is of course aluminum, for its light weight and strength.

Thanks you guys. I'll be ordering and aluminum one on line in a few weeks and I think I might get it from the site Fishin gave me. Only problem is that since it's a US company, it's going to cost me in shipping, customs charges and the exchange rate I lose paying with Canadian money.
I'm going to try and find a place around here that has them first, since it'll save me about $100.

Have you considered a good plastic?

Depends on what you use to hose down everyday. If you are using sanitizers some can cause reactions with metal or plastics.

The requirements are that the stool needs to be metal, otherwise I would have gone with a strong plastic.

Just to clear up one point for others reading this thread (since you have already decided on aluminum..a good choice). Stainless steel comes in different grades depending upon the specific alloy. Grades like 316 or better yet duplex grades like 2304 or 2205 are essentially rust proof. It is used on salt water boats among other things and will not rust under any conditions a stool would likely encounter. Silicon bronze is another corrosion resistant marine grade metal used for fittings exposed to salt water.

Better buy it. You just can't get custom made for the going retail.

you can find the answer as long as you figure out which metals are ferrous and which are non ferrous because ferrous metals can rust and non ferrous metals cant

@Setanta,
The Washington Monument is not an obelisk. By definition an obelisk is one piece of stone. The Washington Monument was built in three phases due to money issues, which the layers are easily seen.
