I am looking to get steps for the 18' x 38' oval above ground pool I am installing. I am planning to have a deck built next to my pool, but that might take an extra couple weeks at least, so I figured I should get steps with a ladder for now and then remove the ladder and attach to the deck when it's finished.
The couple I am looking at now are:
Main Access 24" Smart Step System and Smart Choice Ladder for $220 (http://www.poolsupplyworld.com/homepage ... mpid=CMPGB)
Main Access 36" Easy Entry Step and Smart Choice Ladder for $350 (http://www.poolsupplyworld.com/poolsupp ... 00400T.htm)
Blue Wave 30" Easy Pool Step with Outside Ladder for $300 (http://www.csnstores.com/show_detail.ph ... 49-BWV1399)
For those of you who have steps... how important is the width of the steps? Is it worth the extra money to get wider steps?
Also, my deck will be mostly on the rounded end of my pool. Will steps fit against the curve, or will I need to extend the deck along the flat side some in order to connect the steps to a flat side?
Thanks for any advice.
