    Above-Ground Steps & Ladders

    1. 2 months ago
      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.

      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.

      Nice ladder
      But you had better be strong and handy to get it together. Never seen instructions that included a rubber mallet in every photo. You definitely need the tools they say and soapy water. We had one tread that didn't fit in the hole and we struggled for 20 minutes paring it down until we could beat it into the hole. Water doesn't really make it that heavy. We put sand bags on the bottom rung. Ok for the price I guess.

      Solid steps.
      This is a replacement ladder for the same ladder as before. The brackets that fasten to the pool deck cracked and weakened the railing. Hopefully I can get replacements the next time as I have the info. Holding on to the old ladder as it is still good.

      Good quality ladder
      We were having a hard time finding a ladder that fit our new pool. There are a lot to fit 4 ft. ladders, but not many for the higher pool 4.5 ft plus the deck. We have a son who is handicapped so the steps are much easier for him to get in and out of the pool. We did have to drill an extra hole on the upper part so the ladder would fill with water. We are happy with the quality for the price.

      Ladder for above ground pool
      I bought this about a month ago my husband put it together I really like be the hand rails getting out of the pool. I like the steps also they are just what someone needs

      Arrived with two broken steps
      Looks like good construction but two of the steps arrived broken. The bolts pass through the rails and through two holes on the steps. The inner hole was completely busted on both steps. Appears to be a manufacturing problem. Contacted manufacturer and sent pictures. They needed invoice which I sent. Now waiting for a response. Will update with better review if replacements are sent and a more negative review if not.

      Absolute need for pet owners!
      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!

      strong and sturdy. Water storage in the ladder is
      We fought with the old "sand bag" latter for years. No matter how you sealed the sand bags, leakage would occur. That problem is now solved. This sturdy latter was easy to assembled (when you read and follow instructions). As soon as we started filling the ladder, it slowly when down to it's place in the pool. NO MORE SAND! I used longer screw for the Section you secured to the deck. also, use washers so the screw head doesn't go through. That is my only recommendation. I really like this ... read more ladder, and wished I bought it earlier.

      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.

      Stable excellent pool ladder
      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!

      Very happy
      These stairs do come with the safety gate even though the product description states that it can be purchased separately. These stairs are very well built and seem like they will last for a very long time. They are also very nice looking compared to the cheaper stairs. The only cons were the pirce and the fact that putting them together was a bit of a pain. It takes two people minimally.

      Very Good product
      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.

      Love it !
      We got a pool last year and it came with a ladder and we hated it. So I started looking around for steps so my elderly Mother-in-law could get into the pool with our family along with all my neices and nephews. We planned on getting just the steps and after 6 weekends of my brother in law not showing up to build it, we took the lumber back and I called and ordered another set of steps and the enclosure kit. Yes, is a little pricey but it is worth every penny. We put it together today and it did ... read more take about 4 hrs to assemble the whole unit.(2 people) You have to put together both set of steps and the the enclosure kit and the gate. It is alittle time consuming. The only issue we had was we built a stone patio outside the pool and the pool and the patio are not the same level which we did have to finangle it a bit to level it up. The unit does have some room for play but if there is more than and inch difference your side rails will not line up correctly. We eventually did get it to work and I am very happy with the product so far. It looks good and it is very easy to walk up into the pool and out. I am so glad I spent the extra money and bought the steps instead of the ladder. You won't be sorry.

      Great for backyard w/o a fence
      We bought our current pool last year and it only had a standard ladder. Our autistic daughter, who normally is a fish during the summer, refused to climb the ladder and if we lifted her into the pool, she became hysterical. This year we found the staircase system and enclosure. She loves it and the enclosure gives us peace of mind that she can not get in the pool without us opening it for her.

      Steps were easy to assemble. Instructions were well thought out. Connecting kit posed a bit more problem. Enclosed instructions were vague at best. We finally figured it out but it took up a whole Saturday(at least 8 hours). But we are generally pleased with the finished product.
