Mod - please move this post if it is the wrong area.
I would like to add a handrail to the steps in the shallow end of my Anthony Gunnite pool. We have a family member that could use the pool with the added balance it would bring.
The steps are the typical three-level semi-circular steps found in Gunnite pools (I can post a photo tomorrow if needed). The question: Are these steps solid or a hollow shell that had Gunnite applied over a frame? If solid, I can put anchors in the bottom step for bolting a handrail and also anchor the 'dry end' with anchors to the pool deck. If hollow, I guess I could lower the water level (again!) and find some kind of epoxy to hold the lower (wet) end in place.
Thinking about it, I imagine there may be a better way I've not thought of. All inputs are welcome.
