Getting ready for my PB to install my pool very soon so I am running close on making last minute alterations. My neighbor has a in-wall ladder in his deep end. Mine is schedule to have a traditional ladder. My PB sales guy swayed against me doing a in-wall ladder because it was another place a leak could occur and they only do it for auto pool cover customers (and believe me they tried to push every other accessory). My neighbor said he went in-wall because he didn't like the idea of the ladder rubbing on the vinyl liner and having an obstacle in the way when you were swimming.
Any suggestions on the matter? Is it worth the added price to get an in-wall ladder? Anyone have any pros/cons for a traditional versus in-wall ladder?
