This is a really expensive ladder, but worth every penny, We paid an extra $200 for the Harrows pool company one and it still sucked. It was unstable, required sand to hold it in the pool. The Confer ladder was so much better. Easy to assemble (but it took some time), a little heavy to get into the pool, but using water to add weight was so much simplier. Big hit with my 63 year old wife!

We just brought this double stair system because we have an elderly person with limited mobility. These steps work amazingly well for him and also for our overweight friends and family. Extremely easy to assemble. Most of it snaps together. Assembled and in the pool in about two hours. Couldn't say enough about this product.

I bought this a couple weeks ago and it is great. Simple to put together and the quality is great. Thought I would need sand bags or something to weigh it down but they were not needed. We just made sure to slowly submerge stairs to allow air to escape and water to fill. Best purchase I have made for our pool. Delivery was quick and arrived as scheduled. If you want a nice quality stair and not build a deck this is the perfect choice.
Bought this a couple of weeks ago . It works great and is well built

I bought this about a month ago, I like that it is plastic (no rusting). The part of the ladder that is in the water seems to be really sturdy, but the handrails are a little shaky. Wish it would have been sturdier.
We have had these stairs in our pool for over 13 years. I bought the original ones from another retailer for a lot more money 13 years ago. We broke them this year because we didn't have the man power to lift and should have had someone in the water helping to get them out. These steps have been great for babies, they have been through 5 grandchildren and my 90 year old mother really loves them, she can get in and out of the pool very easily which is why I am purchasing the same stairs as I had.

This stair system is really a great product. From being on my feet all day for my job, they are shot. The regular exit stairs to our pool were so narrow that it was all I could do to get out of the pool. So for the last year I didn't get in. I love my pool. So looked in your catalog,because we ordered quite a few things from In the Swim. There they were and what a blessing. Now if you could do something about the weather.

Best Purchase EVER
These steps are great ! I had polio as a baby, and was starting to have trouble using the upright ladders to exit the pool ! These steps were so easy to put together...not that heavy to put into the pool...didn't take very much sand to weigh them down...so easy to just walk right in or out of the pool. A real must have for anyone with leg problems. Some dirt does gather under them..but a quick shot of pressure with the garden hose, and it all flows out to be easily vacuumed up! Thanks for a great product !
I highly recommend the Curve Step System for anyone that has an above ground pool. They are very well built and the assembly instructions were easy to follow and was as close to trouble free as anything we have ever tried to assemble before.
Our above ground pool is buried approximately 3 ft. in the ground, and this step system makes it effortless to get in and out of the pool.
We are extremely happy with the look of the steps and have received numerous compliments on them!
My husband & I are
... read more very impressed by this product. So much so that he said, "you have to write a review on these so people will know how great these steps are!"

love the space
We have had this for a month now and love it, especially when several people are in the pool. It was relatively easy to put together and get in the pool. Stays put since we secure it to our wood deck, but not so sure it would if you did not secure it to something. I will be interested to see how easy it is to get out of the pool for winter storage.

Good product, not a great description
The steps are sturdy and look great. The instructions were well written and easy to follow. It does not snap together without tools. Our steps took 3 people about an hour to assemble, they need 40 lb of sand, a rubber mallet, a cordless drill, and a phillips head screwdriver. They are supposed to be removed for the winter, I don't know how we'll manage that. The assembled steps filled with sand and water are very heavy.
I lost a dog in our pool and have lived in fear until finding the Skamper Ramp. We purchased the large one and have installed and taught our 50 pound dog to use - which she does with ease! I now have peace of mind that I hopefully will never live through that horror again. If you have an inground pool with only ladders - this is a must!

This is a must have for pool and pet owners.
We own a Jack Russell that loves to swim. In March of 2009 we purchased a home with a pool. We feared our dog would jump in without our knowledge and possibly drown. We needed something to assist our dog to exit the pool. I figured someone would have made such a device so I started my search and found this great product. We have had it a few weeks and my dog goes in and out of the pool at will. It took use only 10 Min to train him.

Saved my cat's life the first week I had this!
I have had my pool for a couple of years and always wanted to purchase a scamper ramp for my pets saftey. I finally broke down and bought the largest one, as I have pets of all sizes. After installing the ramp, which is a sinch. I saw my cat playing one day on my deck and sure enough she fell right in the pool. I hurried to save her, but she had swam to the ramp and was letting herself out of the pool by the time I got out there. This ramp has paid for itself by saving my cat's life.
The ladder seems to be very well made and very comfortable to use but even after putting 12 small bricks in the available spaces, the ladder would not remain on the bottom of the pool. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that this was a replacement ladder and I used the same deck fitting to mount it. From what I can see that should not have made a difference.

great ladder for the price
we are enjoying are new ladder and the mat; It looks and feels real nice. My children are always on it and jumping off of it. My husband is over 250lbs and its easy for him to get in and out of the pool. We are adding on to are deck so we are going to need another ladder.

Fits pool perfectly. Ordered on Thur Not expecting Ladder until Monday was amazed when it showed up at my door less than 24 hours later. Told Fed Ex I could not believe it was here as quickly as I received it. Driver said this company is great to work with because they fill orders as they are received and ship immediately. This is with out any shipping charges. Thank you In the Swim and Fed Ex for a great experience.
I purchased the size that was offered with these steps but, in my opinion, it should be the bigger one offered with the steps to cover all the bottom of the steps, not just the front part. But other than that is a great thing to protect your liner under the steps.
