Why isn't water super-effective against steel?

I mean I'm pretty sure water rusts steel. Doesn't that make it super-effective?

Because it takes a long time to rust something made of steel. Moves like water gun only last a sew seconds, no way near the time it takes to rust something.

If you spray a hosepipe on a car, it doesn't break. :P

Also, if it was super effective it might be too easy to kill steel types and Game Freak might not want it like that.

Thank you.
Icedude is right, a simple hit of Surf will kill Klinklang if it was so.
and steel is used for plumbing. if that's the case, it should RESIST water.
