    Cool Pool steps possibility for Intex Ultra Frame with deck

    pool1.jpgpool.jpg

    I have been loving my Intex Ultra Frame -
    but needing steps or something easier
    for family members (that are older) to get in
    So they can enjoy the pool as well!!!

    A good friend is giving me his steps so it can happen,
    Any feed back??

    Absolutely this will work... Your Intex pool is big enough to handle steps that size so I say go for it...

    The company told me no. Will I need the pad underneath or nah??
    I figured out to weigh it down with water jugs

    Re: Pool steps possibility for Intex Ultra Frame with deck

    That's pretty much what you do... The liner on an intex pool is actually a little thicker than a liner that's in a normal above ground pool, so I'm not sure why they would tell you that... And using water to weigh steps down isn't the best way to do it, as water is still buoyant, so fill some old bleach jugs with sand and put them underneath, that should hold them...

    Thanks.
    trying to get mom to get in the pool using it as physical therapy.
    I was thinking the steps would make it easier. Glad it will work

    Those look just like the steps I have and I love mine. I'm sure they will work great in your pool.

    I would love to be laying in the pool - but godkids are coming over. I have their floats in a milk crate and
    that may keep them off of my big floats. But still ::

    They stayed off of it. I threatened. My godkids are void.
