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!

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....

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.
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.

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.
