    If you want it to be even remotely safe than you are definitely talking both "fancy" and "break the bank".

    Re: bridge

    I'm sure i don't need a grand to make a DIY bridge or even a redneck variety ... i'm thinking floating platform perhaps .. or stabilized inflatable .. pontoon style .. or wondering what kind of material that is ok to have pressed against a Vynil liner (I';ve seen bridges with footing on a vynil lined pool).. or an extreme of building a wood bridge over a 24' span ... but that would be heavy to take down I need something portable so I can easily take it off and put the cover on when closing the pool.

    I don't need it for heavy traffic just daily cleaning of the skimmer baskets .. i can make make a 55' walk into a 15' one with a bridge in the center not to mention troubleshooting pipes ..
