Default Pool Water Harming CPS PC's?

Well, I have used my soakers in pools for the last week (Only two days) and I was wondering, Can pool water harm soakers?

As long as their is no dirt getting inside of your gun, you should probably be alright. If your water is a little brown that probably isn't to great, but if after your fight you used some clean water to flush it out of the internals, you would probably be alright again. It might not be pleasant for other players getting that in the eyes though.

I'm not too sure about this one. There are many chemicals in pool water, and one of them may react negatively with rubber. I don't think it's anything to worry about though because pool water mostly is water. I've put my CPS guns in pool water many times before, they still work. Even if the rubber was weakened by a chemical you could fix that with some K-modding or Collosusing I suppose.

I remember using a Max-D 6000 in a pool and it broke after that. I think something about the pressure might have done something to it.
