    Deep end requirements

    Is there a uniform requirement for steps or ladder in the deep end or does that vary by depth and municipality?

    Re: Deep end requirements

    When we put our pool in nothing was said about requirements and the builder was only including a handrail up at the steps end. I wanted some at the deep end just in case someone ran out of steam and wanted to get out. It was a little bit of a search because I needed steps that fold out of the water because of the automatic cover, but I do think it was a worthwhile feature for safety sake.

    It varies. Most areas have no requirements.

    In my area the requirements are for commercial pools only. Nothing for residential.

    Re: Deep end requirements

    Most pools now have a swim out step in the deep end, I thought it was required, its a good place to sit or climb out.
