    something for kids to stand on?

    what do people put in them for smaller kids to stand on since they are too short.... they can swim but they also like to stand and play too

    thanks

    A lot of folks have wedding cake steps in their pools that allow the younger set to stand and sit on in the pool.

    In the past I have made some small step/ table like things out of 1.5 " Pvc pipe... It is cheap and easy.. Drill a few holes in it make it take on water and sink to the bottom..

    I like the PVC pipe frame with a HDPE top piece.

    where would I get a HDPE piece? use a HDPE cutting board?

    would you put anything on the edges of the pvc fittings so they do not wear on the liner?

    thanks

    A plastics company would have it. You could use PVC sheet but HDPE is neutrally bouyant.

    I would sand any edges and bumps smooth before putting it in the pool.

    I would be cautious of anything kids can get stuck under or tangled up in.

    we got wedding cake steps and although I hated them the first week because they were seemingly made poorly I now love them and would not consider having the pool without them. We have a deck built around it so they are perfect match for my setup. Gives the kids a staging area they can rest and start from.
