    Above-Ground Steps & Ladders

    1. 5 years ago
      Fairly good product
      We've had our steps for about a month and yes they do support the weight as claimed, BUT, they are wobbly, feel incredibly unstable and I wish they had a "landing" at the top. For those of us with recent knee replacements the risers are very steep... Very steep. Also the steps on the inside of the pool are very narrow unlike those on the outside. I'd much rather someone build curvy, graduated steps... Almost ramp-like access in the outside and wider steps on the inside. Because the risers are so ... read more steep, I simply can't use them with my knees. Maybe someday I'll be able to, but not yet. So I get to sit and watch everyone else play.

      Stable and Looks Good !
      We've had these steps for a few years now. They are stable and good looking. NO problem getting in or out and my husband has 2 bad knees and a bad back. Self latching locking gate is exactly what we needed.

      Did the job nicely
      Although I think that $40 + shipping was a bit much for 4 pieces of plastic. It was exactly what I need to convert the step portion of my old ladder into a usable step into the pool of the deck. I guess nothing is cheap anymore

      ladder conversion kit
      The new conversion kit was much heavier and more durable than the other pieces that were on the latter. I'm very well pleased with them and the shipping time was very short

      Very safe if you have water babies around
      This ladder is really very tall. It’s too tall for our needs but we kept it anyway. It took over an hour to put together which was more than we anticipated. We have a 2 year old granddaughter so we really like the slide lock for maximum safety.

      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 .

      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.

      excellent investment
      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 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.

      Deck flanges are a seperate item!!
      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.

      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.

      Super easy to install
      This is a great easy to install pool ladder, that is very strudy for even a 250 lb. Man to enter and exit the pool. Doesn't take up pool space. Would recommend.

      pretty good
      I bought this ladder on sale its a really good ladder,but prepared to punch out all the holes,an what they call a safety piece behind the ladder is stupid

      Safe and easy to use
      We bought a safety ladder bc we have a very curious toddler. It works perfect with our intex pool and keeps our toddler safe and out of the pool. It's easy enough for our 9 year old to manipulate up and down. Not too bad to put together. Took about 2 hours with a lot of children helping

      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.

      Love these steps. We bought them last year and use them everyday in our above ground pool. You will not be disappointed the quality.

      Alge problem
      Love the steps, but ive had an alge problem ever since i put them in my pool. Can you tell me whats doing this

      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.

      Easily assembled very solid
      so far this system is great it is solid and easily assembled the only downside was with some of the hardware very small and not very secure in holding the top step in place they have fallen out twice we are trying to find something more secure in holding the top step on otherwise it is a great secure ladder

      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

      5 stars!!
      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...

    More About Above Ground Pool Steps & Above Ground Pool Ladders

    Above ground pool steps and ladders are important pool equipment for the safety of pool users and pets. In The Swim offers a variety of steps and ladders for every above ground pool owner’s budget, whether or not your pool has a full or partial pool deck

    For above ground pools without a deck, a two-sided ladder like the Roll Guard A-frame safety ladder and the Evolution A-frame safety ladder are useful necessities. Take a 'step-up' in quality and size with two-sided pool step systems that feature an outside safety gate such as the Deluxe Entry System or the Combo Step Entry System that combines wide and sturdy stairs outside the pool, and a thick yet unobtrusive ladder inside the pool. Double sided pool A-frame ladders are weighted with sand or pebbles, to sit solidly on the pool floor and stay firmly in place. 

    For above ground pools with a deck, you can use the single pool ladder or the wider and safer pool steps, connected to your pool deck. For above ground pool ladders, look at the Heavy Duty In-Pool Ladder, or the 5-Step Stainless Steel pool ladders. Above ground pool steps are selected from 4 models, including the popular Staircase Steps and the elegant Curve Step System. Weighted pool steps connect to your pool deck and make a stable way for kids and adults to enter and exit the pool safely. Pool steps or stairs also make a great place to sit in the pool!

    Vinyl Works and Confer above ground pool ladders and steps are made from roto-molded thermoplastics, designed to be easily assembled and quickly installed, with all parts and complete instructions included. The most cost-efficient models include the single pool ladder that attaches to your pool deck or a double sided pool ladder for above ground pools without a deck. The more expensive models include locking safety gates, wide and deep treads and platform, solid handrails, and weight ratings of up to 300 lbs. Using a ladder pad or step pad is recommended to protect your pool liner.

    If you have questions regarding above ground pool steps or above ground ladders, please call or email our pool professionals at In The Swim - 1-800-288-7946.
