    Need ladder help

    The ladder that came with our Doughboy pool is inadequate. It only attaches to the sides with 2 nylon straps that go under the rails and that scares me a lot. I used the ladder last night and it was wabbling and buckling all over the place. I have attached a poor pic of it (I can take more tonight) uninstalled.

    My question is, what would be the best ladder to get for that deck configuration? The deck is under the lip of the rim so the ladder needs to attach to the deck just an inch or so below the rail.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    We have a set of Lumi-O steps and they're nice. There are brackets that attach to the deck to hold them in place. I'd look for some type of cake steps or cake like steps. They're going to be better than ladders.

    Do wedding cake steps attach to a deck?

    above ground pool ladders come in two parts, in pool and outside the pool. The in pool portion usually has a small platform that attaches to the frame of the pool or a deck. Wedding cake steps have different makers, but I know most will attach to a pool or deck with bolts and not just straps.
