Not my best choice
It was extremely unfriendly to put together. I will be shipping back for your review when I replace it again. It has broken down and not at all what I would recommend for anyone. One could hope that since it was only in there for about 6 weeks, this is not right and maybe I could at least get a partial refund.

Assembly was easy but it was so flimsy and the foot that attached to the deck broke right away. This ladder is going in the trash.

you get what you pay for
It was difficult to get in the water. We tried to fill with sand but that just came back out in the pool. It took time but if you have the patience, it is easy to install. You also have to buy a mat to put under the ladder so the ladder wont tear your liner. We bought cheap car mats. That worked well. After one full summer using of using the ladder, the plastic brackets that held the ladder to the deck began cracking and eventually came apart. I heard their were aluminum brackets available. So I would deffinalty use those as opposed to the plastic. Then the ladder would deffinatly be worth the money.

Very weak ladder
We had a hard time putting it together then we had to fill it with sand to weight it down in the water. After installing it in the pool we had to add a block of wood to the deck to stabilize this ladder. The steps feel as though they will break with every step, and I only weight 130lbs.
