Hi, this is my first post to the forum, hope I am posting to the correct category. I have an in ground salt water pool and a 117lb Labrador Retriever. Last year I discovered water pooling on the south end of my yard and thought it was the irrigation system. Long story short, my lab punctured my pool stairs. I have 3 vinyl steps that extend the entire width of the pool. I have spent countless hours researching a solution so Auggie does not puncture my stairs again this year. Last year I placed shower matts on the steps. This was a time consuming task, and the suction cups loosed and matts fell to the bottom of the pool. This year we are going to glue pool ladder matts to each step. Auggie's nails will not go through the ladder matts. I do keep his nailed trimmed, he is just a solid strong boy. Has anyone had an experience with this or any suggestions?
