Rusting screws in shower

Really, Voltage, you put regular screws in the shower so they could immediately rust? Replaced all 8 with stainless steel screws at $.23 each. C'mon....

Wow! They're still doing that? When I purchased mine two years ago I had to replace those same screws.

Can't speak for anyone else. Mine were black elongated sheetrock screws. They were bleeding rust. I replaced them within two showers.

Brass probably would have been alright.

Mine was built last summer with rusting, non-brass screws.
