Pools is 16x36 with three build in vinyl covered steps in the shallow end, 16ft wide it's about 12 years old
Replaced the liner this year because of fading, no leaks
After install and first use we noticed the bottom two pool steps are no longer soft, the top one is. The installer did not replace the foam on the steps, said it was in good shape.
His explanation is that the bottom two steps are under enough water pressure to compress the foam, resulting in a harder feel.
To be honest I don't remember the feel of the original steps, I don't swim that often. But my wife claims they were softer with the original liner.
Is this normal?
Should he have replaced the foam?
Thank you in advance! Great forum
