    problem with steps--Help!!!!!

    I have an above ground pool. We recently had a deck built. I attached my steps to my deck and now I have a space about 4 "-5" between the bottom of the steps and the bottom of the pool. Any suggestions as to what I can place in that space.

    Welcome to tfp, poolmama67

    Could you post a picture?

    You may need longer steps, or you may want to get steps that do not need to sit on the bottom.

    Glad you found a simple solution. Pool steps can be expensive!
