    Pool Steps with Gate - Anyone used this one?

    http://www.poolsupplyunlimited.com/B...FcURMwodtkcAgA
    I was looking online at these steps with gate. My main question is if it adjusts well for a slightly different elevation outside the pool. After back filling around the pool, wash gravel, drain pipe, etc the outside elevation is a little higher than the inside. Anyone have experience with these steps? Thinking possibly this would be easier for my 81 year old mom who loves to swim to get in and out verses my innovaplas walkway.

    This ladder will go right up to 54 inch wall height, that's pretty tall for an above ground pool.... I would love this ladder, I'll probably be looking at it for next year...

    How do you cover the pool with one of these on it? do you need to take it down every time or maybe there is a workaround for that?

    Hi Yaniv, One of these what? I'm not sure what you are referring to??

    I have a solar cover and the winter cover that came with my pool, but that's it... I will be buying a new solar cover... I am leaving my pool up... Too much water to keep draining and replacing...

    I meant the Pool Steps, do you need to remove it every time you want to put a pool cover ?

    Re: Pool Steps with Gate - Anyone used this one?

    I've seen people cut their solar covers to fit, but when covering the pool for the winter, they come out....

    From the top photo, it looks like you might be able to just remove the waterside ladder....

    Re: Pool Steps with Gate - Anyone used this one?

    I got these steps last summer to replace the ladder that came with our pool. I love these steps. We cut our solar cover to fit around the steps. It works well. For the winter when we closed up the pool we took the steps out entirely. I got the steps from pool supply company off eBay. They were easy to put together. We weigh them down with bleach bottles filled with sand tied to the bottom step. This works very well.
