Especially for those with smaller pools, what are the dimensions of your steps? Our plan is so small that we don't want to sacrifice much space to the steps, but they still need to be safe and functional, of course.
The water depth where the steps will go is 3'6". Also relevant: I am 5 feet tall and that first step's rise needs to be manageable! (Not so concerned with the deeper steps, since buoyancy will kick in.)
Would also love to hear from those who would do their steps differently somehow.
