I'm pretty psyched, just landed a set of Confer Plastics pool steps for $75. Stock photo, but I got these:
Only problem is they've been outside under a deck for a year and they're pretty nasty. I don't own a pressure washer (though I may try to borrow one), so what's the best way to clean these? I currently have a standard pool ladder for my 18' AGP, and the "out of water" portion of that is pretty nasty, while the part that's in the water is sparkling white. I've always said I'm going to shock my pool one of these years and put the whole ladder in for a cleaning. Never got around to it. Now with this Confer setup, I'm entertaining it...especially since it's too cold to swim and the water is FREEZING right now.
Assuming I'd take the proper precautions to avoid liner damage...is there any other reason I shouldn't shock my pool and put an entire step system under water to give it a cleaning? Or is there a better way?
