Hi everybody, first post here, but I've been reading everything I can all week! We got a 16'x48" Intex Ultra Frame pool last weekend, not knowing a darn thing about leveling ground or adjusting chemicals. "What is CYA, FC, and pH?" Haha.. I made a bucket water level and got the ground perfect and we went through Pool School and many threads and now it is all clear. Thanks!
Now the issue...
I built a sort of "board walk" from our back porch steps to the pool to help keep feet clean going into the pool. The deck is sitting on the ground (ground raised slightly to get it level). The problem is that since the board walk is higher than the bottom of the pool, the ladder obviously leans to the inside of the pool because it is lower. This makes the already wobbly ladder feel unsafe, and it is a trick getting in and out.
I can't think of any clever ways to level this ladder. I think it needs something to raise the inside (because I can't lower the outside), but can't think of anything suitable. I was thinking maybe one of those 4x4 PVC fence posts somehow bolted to the inside bottom of the ladder. I didn't want it to look "country-rigged" so I haven't made a move on that idea yet. Do you guys have any other ideas? I think the inside needs to come up about 4-5 inches to get it level.
Here's what I'm working with... pool is covered because it's been rainy last couple days, and windy!!
