Does anyone have some resources for maintaing brass, stanless steel or polished granite outside. What finishes last. I have a project where the finish is going on all three products. The Items are being sprayed by the well water irrigation. Exposure to sun as well.
We have a chalk like substance developing and staining issues.

I suspect minerals in the water,
The granite is loosing its gloss.
Any ideas?
