    Above-Ground Steps & Ladders

      Steps into my pool
      They were pretty easy to put together. Are more stable than I thought they would be even. Very pleased with this product.

      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.

      Excellant Steps
      These steps are outstanding! It was hard to install because I had to cut the deck mount rails to fit my deck. A small inconveince. Once they were installed they wanted to float a little but after a few days it settled in. I would recomend adding more than 10 lbs. I used play sand which is too fine some sand came out of the water intake holes. The openings for the balast are small and curved which makes it hard to add balast. Dispite these problems I would recommend these steps they are a good value.

      Nice ladder for the price. Didn't want a big bulky ladder. This one is perfect

      Bought this a couple weeks ago, so far very happy with it! It’s a great ladder for the money!

      Above ground pool ladder
      I bought this two weeks ago. I have had compliments on how solid the ladder is.

      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.

      Ladder pad
      I bought this pad to protect my pool liner from possible damage caused by the ladder rubbing against the liner. I finally put my ladder in the pool yesterday. I was delighted when I put the ladder pad in the water, it went right to the botton. It was easy to place under the ladder. I don't think that I will have any problems with it floating up or moving out of place. The size is perfect and has extra material on each side incase of movement. Hopefully the $40 will be well worth it. I also hope ... read more that I can use it for a few years before replacing. We'll just have to wait and see.

      Good Quality
      I bought this step pad about a month ago. This one is thicker and of better quality than the last one I had and stays in place much better.

      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.

      Well made !
      We bought this to allow our dog to enter and exit the pool from the deck. It works great for everybody and is not too big for our above ground pool. It was easy to put together. Hardest part was putting the sand in. We used a play sand which has some moisture in it. A dry sand would have poured in much easier.

      Very happy and so is Grandma
      Very easy to put together. The instructions were a little confusing but I figured it out. It took about an hour to do by myself. I filled the sides with sand and the steps don’t float or move now that they are attached to the deck. I’m not really sure how I’m going to remove it from the pool for the winter because it is very heavy with water and sand. So if anyone has tips on that I’d appreciate it. My mother is 72 and can not climb a ladder so these steps gave her a safe way in and out of the ... read more pool and the kids have a spot they can sit and play until they are tall enough to stand in the pool. The only design flaw I don’t like, is I wish they weren’t so steep. This is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. Great steps so far after 1 month.

      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.

      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.

      Awesome stairs!
      These stairs are exactly what we needed for our above ground pool. They were easy to assemble, install, and are very sturdy. Highly recommend!

      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.

      Easier to handle
      Bought this to replace the roll slide ladder that broke. This ladder is our 3rd ladder and this by far is the best of the 3 we have purchased. This ladder does Not float!! You don't need to fill the ladder with water. It is adjustable and is solid once in place. Love the handle features because we put our pool noodles through the spaces at the top of the steps. very sturdy. The side pull out tab feature Is easy to use when pulling steps up in a position when pool is not in use and can be locked ... read more with a simple padlock if desired .

      Great Ladder
      It was so easy to put together. I also bought the stabilizer bar and there is no movement when climbing up and down the ladder.

      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...

      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

      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.
