i found this old pool filter behind my in laws shed they said I could have it. 90% sure it is stainless. magnet stuck to it and the starch test pasted . the outside has a little rust on it from the pump that was sitting on top of it. it comes off with no problem I can literal take it off with my finger

Hmmmm, are you sure the magnet stuck, stainless usually does not make magnets stick.

There are of course some grades that will 'stick' a magnet, but it all gets pretty technical.

In the main you should find that a magnet will NOT stick to stainless.

Actually, I have found that work hardened Stainless will attract a magnet pretty well. Kegs are a good example...

Even 300 series Stainless will become magnetic on formed Seams. The flat areas will be non Magnetic, but the worked area will be faintly Magnetic. On the other Hand 400 series, like 409 is Magnetic, because of the lack of Nickel content. High Nickel Alloys tend to be non-Magnetic, but not always. Most Foodservice and Pharmaceutical Equipment is in the range of 304-316 Series for most Items.
