We just installed our Pro Series 18"x52" about a month ago. I thought that this ladder would make one season and we could start on the deck build next spring. Well obviously it's not, we're both adults and all our friends are adults (some a bit larger than others) and this ladder is actually keeping people from wanting to get into the pool. I can't say I blame them. We have been looking at different ladders; however, nearly every ladder I've come across clearly stats it is not intended for soft-sided pools or requires at least a 3" ledge. According to the reviews, many people are stating they successfully use these ladders by either by using a bungee cord or by drilling holes in the top rails .
I was curious what other owners may have done and what worked out for you. Thanks
BTW I love this site and seeing everyone's beautiful pools.
