I'm getting ever-closer to my purchase of a 21'x41' oval Doughboy w/ 54" walls. The last thing I'm hung up on are the steps - my seller-installer of choice only carries drop-in wedding cake steps for use with AG pools that have a deck - no ladder attachment available! We won't be able to afford a deck for a while. So, it looks like I might be hunting down my own ladder/wedding cake steps combo. Here are two of the options I've found:
1) http://www.overstock.com/Sports-Toys...8/product.html This also seems to be known as the Lumi-o "Grand Entrance" steps (as opposed to Lumi-o's current "Royal Entrance" steps). I just love it when there are 42 different names for the exact same product.
2) This set of steps: http://www.dtydirect.com/ProductDesc...ol-Step&key=it plus this ladder: http://www.dtydirect.com/ProductDesc...-Ladder&key=it
Price for either is roughly equivalent - around $525, which includes shipping. My pool seller would credit me at least $500, I'm guessing.
If any of you have any opinions about these steps or anything similar, please speak up! (I need all the help I can get figuring this out!)
