Last summer we cleaned all the rust off our ladder, but it has already come back. It's mainly around the bolts of the steps and by where the rubber bumpers are, but it's also in a couple of spots on the rails. So we're thinking to replace the ladder, but I don't want to buy a new one just to have it rust like my old one. I'm trying to decide between an S.R. Smith stainless steel ladder (they recommend their marine grade model for SWCG pools), or a Saftron ladder which is made from a resin/plastic material.
So my question is for those of you who have had a SWCG for a while, is your ladder rusting? If not, what kind of ladder are you using?
