Always make sure your pool ladder is in perfect condition for your pool guests. If the ladder feels loose, check the bolts and replace them with a ladder bolt kit if necessary. Look over the ladder anchor sockets in the deck as well, and replace them if there is extensive corrosion or a broken socket. Pool ladders themselves can deteriorate, which is especially true with indoor pools and saltwater pools. If you see excessive pitting, rust or cracks, install a stainless steel replacement pool ladder if needed or replacement ladder steps if the ladder’s rails are ok but the steps are failing.
If your commercial pool has built-in stairs, make sure your hand rails are still sturdy, and if they aren’t, replace them with pool stair rails that are easy for guests of all ages and capabilities to grab. You should do the same if you have a spa: make sure to inspect your spa hand rails for stability and absence of wear or deterioration. If you find the slightest defect, install a new spa grab rail to ensure safe spa entry and exit for all of your guests.
