I bought this ladder a few weeks ago and I am very satisfied with it. I am 300 pounds and it is a pretty sturdy ladder.

Ladder was easy to put together. Not to heavy. I think for a couple of people using it. It should be fine. But I'm afraid if a lot use it might not last. Hand rails could be firmer.

Had a vertical ladder before this one that was difficult to climb and wobbly, and this ladder is much more stable and easier to use when getting out of the pool. So I think this is a very nice ladder for the price.
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.

Already saved a life!
I bought the ramp 2 weeks ago. We installed it with little difficulty. It seems to be working fine.
Be sure to order your deck flanges along with this item. Holes in plastic steps may need trimmed for the pipe to slide through easily. Overall looks like a good product. In The Swim shipping our deck flanges in a couple days. Will update review when they arrive.

great for the money
It was here in no time. It was easy to put together. Works great!
I/we Purchased these stairs last year, they were easy to put together, after making sure that are seams were completely smooth especially on the hand rails, after filling up up with the sand, and installed the rails they did seem loose, so what I did was instead of using just the two screws I used (one on each side) I used two and spaced them apart, worked out great also to make it easier to remove the stair at the end of the season, I had tied Marine rope to the back side of the stairs through
... read more the set of vents so that it makes one large loop, all's we had to do was bring the rope up and pull them up some to let some of the water drain and pull them the rest of the way out. I leave them on my deck and cover them for the winter.
These Stairs are beautiful. I am not afraid of falling at all, and I am handicapped.
I like the fact that they have a wider base bottom, however I still use a 24 x 36" mat under the stairs to make sure my liner is protected.
If you purchase these stairs you Won't Be Sorry You Bought Them! Thank You Confer!!!

Love These Steps
Over all these stairs are a marked improvement over a ladder. As I've read in other reviews the railings or handles are a little flimsy, but you really don't need to pull hard on them if you are able to walk up and down stairs normally. The manufacturer states to put 40 lbs. of sand in the stairs before putting them in your pool. My husband and I did not do this because we knew we would never be able to get them back out again on our own. Instead we let them fill with water as we put them in the
... read more water, then I got 40 lbs. of plastic coated weights and tied them to the sides of the stairs with marine rope. Worked great all summer! We just now untied the weights and pulled the stairs out to close the pool for the season. Very easy! Thanks for a great product!

As good having an inground pool!
I love these stairs. They were really easy to put together. They stay in place well. They look great! Easy to see at night. The reason we purchased these stairs is so my puppy could walk into and out of the pool without assistance, they work great for this. He swims up to the top stair then climbs out on his own. My deck goes up to my pool edge. With the stairs in place it makes the pool look like an inground pool. We secured the stairs to the deck for safety. I wouldnt have an above ground pool without them.
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.

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.
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.

Very sturdy stairs, complete with security gate
I purchased these stairs so that my father and my aunt could more easily get into the pool with their disabilities. Plus, these stairs look way nice and come with a security gate that you can lock as an extra effort to keep children out of the pool unattended.
