    Hole in wedding cake style steps

    We just cleaned the pool in a new house and found one of the steps with a big hole/crack. Is it fixable or am I just out of luck? I was hoping to find a way to rig it to get through one summer. Any ideas? I attached a picture...I think

    My DIY idea:
    Cut some PVC pipe long enough to fit underneath the steps for reinforcement, and drill some stainless steel screws from the top down to secure them.
    (We have some PVC pipes filled with concrete as weights under our steps, so I know that PVC is fine.)

    You can always go to a industrial plastics store and get a 1/4" thick piece of UMHW plastic. Its nylon virgin heavy duty plastic. They will trim to suit, then you just screw it down from the top, after putting it inside under the step.
