I have had these steps / ladder for 8+ years...NO rust or weak steps...Comes spotlessly clean with hose or powerwasher...The security of ease of entry and exiting of pool is 2nd to none...There is no way to have entrapment when in the pool...This may cost more initially but the durability and comfort are worth it and in the long run very cost effective...Extra bonus that the gate locks - very important for insurance purposes....

I built them in one day. I needed a friend to help lift the one half into the pool.
They were a little heavy to adjust the height once I got them in the pool. There was a learning curve about getting them good and level, so that the two staircases can be attached with good stability.
The "non-entrapment step facing" and "the skids" on the bottom of both sides should be installed outside of the pool, and secured with a little tape until you have the steps installed well.
Once the stairs are in

Mom/Granny went swimming today and did great. She was fully in control all the way into the pool and all the way out to the sidewalk.

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.
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

Nice looking steps, solid slip reisitant.
Bought a month ago. Easy assembly. Rubber mallet a must. Proper weight of sand for ballast a must.
Many Many compliments on the steps. Be done with ladders forever.

Great for dogs! And even people.
Sturdy, well made, easy to assemble, stay in place well, my labs use them with ease, i used (4) separate homemade 40# pvc and concrete weights to hold them down instead of sand, drilled a few extra holes in bottoms of pieces to let water and air in and out when placing and removing them from pool. I'm a 40 year old guy in pretty good shape but no Hercules, and I am able to get them both in and out of the pool myself (slowly and gradually to let water in when installing and out when removing),
... read more all while staying dry, though it would be an easier job with two people. I would not be able to do this if I used sand as a ballast as suggested in the instructions.
