I just recently purchase a home with an older in-ground vinyl pool (18x36) that has two ladders but no steps. I need to add steps to help some in the family access the pool. I've looked at more permanent steps but the pool has a brand-new liner so it seems that something drop-in might be best for now. Two questions, which drop-in step and where to buy? There seem to be many models and many sellers but it is hard to tell which is reputable and I can find very little in the way of side-by-side comparison. Most steps seem to have mixed reviews.
Two that I'm looking at:
1. Grand Entrance Steps $450 - Comes in numerous pieces and has to be put together, says that is allows water circulation. Link: http://www.familypoolfun.com/shop?ca...product=ne1085
2. Lumi-o Oasis Pool Steps $620 - Seems to come mostly assembled. I like the look of this one better but a lot of places no longer seem to sell it. Link: http://www.familypoolfun.com/shop?ca...&product=ne102
Are there others that are considered more reputable? Who should I buy from on the internet?
Any help is appreciated.
