I know the galvanized Bostich nails say good for all treated lumber. Stainless is the preferred fastener if you can find and then afford them. If you just bought the galvanized nails you used I would not loose any sleep over them rusting off in your lifetime. Deck looks good!

I added a deck to my camp a few years back and was told about the nail corrosion issue after the fact. Someone said they can corrode through in 2 or 3 years..... this is year 4, still standing. Maybe I'll pull a nail this year and inspect it.

This year they changed something with the pressure treatment I noticed the wood doesn't look so greenish anymore. :) Scott

They did away with the nasty chemicals that killed bugs and replaced it with much more copper. It makes a battery of the wood and nails and the nails are the anode...they get eaten in the process.
