Salt spray is an accelerated corrosion test that at best is an indicator of real world performance.
You have a corrosion problem that needs fixing.
Do you have a nickel undercoat? If not, add one. If yes, make the coating a little thicker or preferably go to a duplex nickel coating. This may not be available in all areas of your country, but it is available from a few good vendors.
You might make your chrome a few percent thicker, but not much as it does not add a great deal to the corrosion resistance.
