Thread: Inground Ladder Question

    Inground Ladder Question

    My pool has the pieces to put a ladder into on the deep end embedded into the concrete decking, but I can't seem to find a ladder to fit.
    Every ladder I can find measures 20" between the two handrails.
    Well my mounts (for lack of knowledge of the real term) Measure 17.5 inches, not 20.
    So I have no idea what kind of ladder they had here before I bought the house or if they even ever did...maybe they just installed these wrong and never had one...dunno.

    I would really like to find one that fits though.

    Anybody have any ideas for me?

    Can't answer on types/brands of ladders. If all else fails, you could have a shop with a tubing bender make one out of stainless for you. I believe, someone else will come along with some suggests.

    Have you physically measured the ones advertised? Seems most likely they would advertise center to center, so you'd be around 18" between the rails. Adding the thickness of the anchors might give you 17" between the anchors.

    You may not need a ladder per say, but just rails to go with the on-wall ladder. Are there 2 anchor cups on each side?

    Most all ladders i've seen measure 20 inches on center.

    Yeah the 17.5 inches is on center and like you said all I can find is 20" on center
