The type of outdoor storage boxes you choose will depend on what you need to store and what the climate is like where you live. Outdoor boxes will generally have to withstand lengthy exposure to the sun as well as other elements like rain wind and even snow. Waterproofing is a major concern as you dont want either the box or its contents to be ruined by water damage. Generally plastic and fiberglass offer the best waterproofing allowing them to withstand even the most extreme elements.
Pool equipment is another potential headache. The chemicals and equipment used for cleaning the pool can all be kept locked up in the same place as the filtration unit but it is nice to have pool toys near to the water. This is especially true if there are children. A good-looking deck box or large storage bench will hold all the pool toys and it makes tidying up very easy to do as well as providing extra seating by the pool.
Aluminum is not the ideal material for outdoor storage boxes as it doesnt stand up to the elements well. It is prone to rust and corrosion and can even cause corrosion in other metal objects stored inside it. There are some designs that incorporate aluminum within other less corrosive materials such as bamboo or rattan but metal objects like garden tools can still rust if stored within one of these aluminum lined boxes. The bottom line when it comes to outdoor storage is that you need to find something that you can work with and that will last for as long as possible.
