    Ladder recommendations for Intex 18x48

    Hi everyone. Right now I just have the ladder that comes with the Intex 18x48 AGP. It worked out ok for most people, although it's a little wobbly, giving off that not sturdy feeling.
    I have a few "bigger" friends though, and even though the ladder says it holds up to 300lb, we were all kinda scared as a few of them tried the ladder based on its not sturdiness. One person even got kinda stuck at their hips at the top in the hand rails since its pretty narrow.

    Any recommendations for a more sturdy and possibly wider ladder for that size pool? Even people under 150lb thought the ladder felt kinda wobbly too, which i can see since the ladder is real light and hollow.

    Thanks in advance for the advice!

    R.J. - is the platform adjustable in height? I see you have a 48" pool...

    I think this ladder might be out of my price range, although it looks awesome

    I don't think it's adjustable. Yes, it's a bit high for our pool but it's very stable and my wife likes the platform on top for sitting and dangling her feet in the water. A little pricey, but we think it's worth every penny.

    Hi
    We have the Integrity ladder. It too is pricey though we got one for less at a local store. It's adjustable from 48 to 52 inches. I like it for its steady and sturdy. I have seen enough of folks with head trauma or broken limbs from falls. We decided it was a good investment. It can also convert to a deck ladder. You can also remove the outside steps to prevent some from climbing in.

    Yeah, doing some more research looks like all the good ones are at least $200, guess I'll have to save up and get it for next year. Thanks for the recommendations everyone.
