    Above-Ground Steps & Ladders

    1. 4 years ago
      Great Ladder
      So thankful to find a ladder that is made to screw onto a wood deck. We bought a 52 inch above ground pool after our 19 year old pool collapsed. All the new pools are 52 inches so our deck had to be modified because the old pool was 48 inches. We built a step up that made is over 55 inches high. You can not walk or step on the new plastic/resin top pools, so we had to build the deck over the top rails. This ladder was the 3rd ladder we purchased and we were so happy to finally find one that ... read more worked. We also have a sloped bottom so the middle is a bit deeper. This ladder was exactly what we were looking for. Also made in USA which was a real plus!!!

      Excellent experience!
      I purchased the #B8006 pool ladder last week and was quite skeptical to say the least. I had no previous purchasing experience with "In-the swim" and I was unsure of the product quality. Well, all I can say is I was very pleasantly surprised with the entire experience! My steps were delivered in just two days. They were very easy to assemble and they fit my pool perfectly! They filled with water quickly which holds them down just as advertised. No more ruptured bags of sand in my pool! We put ... read more the steps to the test right away with my grandchildren going up and down them probably a couple hundred times over the weekend. Overall, a great product at a very reasonable price purchased from an outstanding company! Many thanks!!

      Love these steps!
      I am glad I made the decision to purchase these steps from among the other ladders I was looking at. This product is perfect for those that don't want the vertical steps or all the space taken from traditional steps. Putting it together was easy as long as you follow the instructions with some common sense. Sturdy for larger people to too!

      Best ladder ever
      I never take the time to write reviews, but I had to pay it forward with this product. I bought this ladder to replace the flimsy one that came with my 48 in. Bestway (like an Intex) pool with metal support poles. I debated whether to pay over $100 for a ladder for a pool that only cost $300, but it is worth every penny. This ladder has a heavy-duty platform at the top so I no longer have to climb from the top step of the ladder that came with the pool, over the top edge of the pool, while ... read more trying to balance on 1 foot, while 4 feet off the ground, not easy for someone afraid of heights. We have a lot of foot traffic in and out of the pool, and this ladder is very secure once you fill it with water and zip tie it to the edge of the pool, as other reviewers suggested. Without the zip ties, it does float out of place. With the old ladder, I used to worry constantly that someone would fall off and crack their head open on the stone patio, but no more! The ladder does move a little when the kids are making a whirlpool, but it is easy to shift it back into place, and it doesn't wobble at all even when my 240 lb., 6' 3" husband scrambles up it. The steps are grooved so that your feet don't slip, and the handles at the top are great for turning around at the top. We didn't need any lube to put the parts together. If you're using it for a 48" pool, don't forget to leave off the extensions on the uprights. It tells you that in the instructions, but my husband neglected to read that part, and we had to bang them off so that the ladder wasn't too high. Yes, the ladder cost 1/2 the price of the pool, but we intend to keep the pool for years to come, so it was worth the investment for the peace of mind. Much cheaper than the ones I saw at a pool store. Also, it arrived within 2 days, even though delivery confirmation said over a week. The lock is useless for the ladder, as it is not long enough to fit through both holes, so it doesn't make sense that it is included, so plan on getting lock if you need one.

      Could you please help me return a ladder that I had purchased from you? I had to cancel the pool I had ordered. I could not afford the required fencing. I am disabled, and need the easiest way to return. Please.

      A very sturdy ladder. So much better than the ladder that came with our pool. If you have so heavier people n your group this ladder works great.

      Love these steps
      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.

      Simply the Best
      I purchased these stairs because I have an elderly mother who had knee replacement surgery and certainly couldn't climb the standard ladder in an above ground pool. She can get in and out with such ease. It is even great for the kids, no slipping and falling on the ladder. It makes the whole pool experience so much better. I would highly recommend this to all and so worth the money paid. Easy to put together and install.

      BIg kids. Little Kids, Adults! The Best
      When we bought our pool I knew we woud want stairs, but spending another $500.00 wasn't in the budget. So we waited a few weeks. 5 grandkids under 2, pregnant moms and we aren't getting any younger. I looked everywhere to see what there was, that we could afford. THIS WAS THE WINNER! and we absoutley made a great investment. Getting in and out of the pool is easy, Handing small kids up to waiting arms is easy and a safe landing for the little ones learning to swim. Besides getting the pool this ... read more is the next best invsestment. If you are looking for great service this is the site. They are friendly on the phone with answers to your questions.and the item was delivered with days. PERFECT. Go ahead DO IT, you will be so happy you did.

      Made my pool functional again!!
      Bought his ladder over a stock above ground pool ladder that was way to dangerous to use. This ladder has allowed my family to use our year old pool without worrying about the ladder collapsing or having to have a second person to assist getting into our 18' x 48" Intek pool

      5 stars!!
      I have an Intex 52" above ground pool... and i wasn't sure if was going to be fair at best but i am so impressed with the quality for the price. Some of my family are large people and the ladder is spectacular. ....Worth every penny!!....also shipped very fast...

      Overall I am pleased. It was challenging to assemble but if you read everything properly it does help. You need gravel to put in one side for ballast. Drill extra holes to fill with water faster. Be prepared to drill into your pool rail for added stability. Frankly, it is almost as sketchy as other models but once secured to the rail, it is pretty solid. I choose to NOT assemble the gate and it is just fine as I have a fence around my pool.

      these are fantastic
      These worked perfectly. guess work on measurements and can be worry free for another 20 years....brass will not corrode away like previous pot metal and will be last time i have to cut out concrete to replace...i wish i had these on original pool installation

      Looks great
      Bought this two weeks ago, easy to assemble, looks great in the pool, too bad the weather isn’t as good, haven’t had an opportunity to get in the pool.

      Strong and Sturdy
      Needed this type of ladder that is hard to find. Needed in a few days for a planned family event. Fair price, sturdy and strong, and customer service was excellent. Got it in a couple of days, put together and installed in a very short time.

      Good quality
      Bought this specifically so I could cut off a few inches from the back of the "U" to accommodate a taller height from the bottom of my pool to the surface of the deck I built over the top of it - worked like a charm. A little difficult to put together because the holes on the steps didn't quite line up with the holes in the rails, but it was nothing a little persistence couldn't fix. Overall a big improvement in quality over the ladder that came with the pool when I bought it.

      Stable and Looks Good !
      We've had these steps for a few years now. They are stable and good looking. NO problem getting in or out and my husband has 2 bad knees and a bad back. Self latching locking gate is exactly what we needed.
    2. 4 years ago
      Fairly good product
      We've had our steps for about a month and yes they do support the weight as claimed, BUT, they are wobbly, feel incredibly unstable and I wish they had a "landing" at the top. For those of us with recent knee replacements the risers are very steep... Very steep. Also the steps on the inside of the pool are very narrow unlike those on the outside. I'd much rather someone build curvy, graduated steps... Almost ramp-like access in the outside and wider steps on the inside. Because the risers are so ... read more steep, I simply can't use them with my knees. Maybe someday I'll be able to, but not yet. So I get to sit and watch everyone else play.

      Great steps- works well- what a job to winterize!
      This is my second set of confer steps. The first lasted for eight years and showed signs of splitting so I went for a second set, which is quite different from the first set. The new one is much more stable and has to be screwed together once the water steps are in the water. Getting the steps out of the water is an awful process- they are filled with water, very heavy and it is more than a two person job. The first set of steps could have come out still assembled to each other. Not with ... read more these- so there is a 100 plus pounds of steps floating around my above ground pool- just be aware that the steps work great when assembled and are an awful job when winterizing your pool.

      excellent for safety and ease
      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....

      Great Item
      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.
