    Pool Stairs???

    Anyone know anyway to level out these steps in an AGP that has does NOT have a flat base??
    My better half ordered these last year after we had a major mishap with a old ladder type step,(snapped in half and put 6 bih holes(3 each side of ladder) in brand new 25mil liner only 1ft of bottom). She didn't notice it was only made for flat base pools.
    Problem is, these steps are only made for flat bottoms, not a cupped pool base. I rigged a 3" PVC pipe full of river rock stapped to base, but it leaves the steps wanting to wander. Anyone have any ideas how to level these out any better???
    If I can't come up with some solution, I may have to try to sell these ones for another type. ... ool-Steps/

    Other than fabbing something to fit the bottom of the steps and the pool I don't know what you can do. Most dished pools have a flat ledge around the pool. If yours doesn't then you'll probably have the same issue with anything except a regular ladder.

    If you could find some dense foam you may be able to cut it to fit the bottom.
