    Cool Above Ground Pool Entry Systems - Steps - Help?

    Good morning,

    I am new to this forum and ordered my first pool over the weekend. I chose the 21' Doughboy Desert Spring model. We plan to landscape the slope out of our backyard and have a retaining wall built w/ drainage, etc. and hopefully everything will turn out okay.

    I am older, heavier and less nimble than I used to be and feel more comfortable with steps rather than a ladder to get in and out of the pool. I've seem two models from Confer Plastics with stairs on both sides and a locking gate on the outside that I like. One is a deluxe model and costs about $400 more than the other and it seems to be made out of resin panels which seem to provide a more stable hand-rail that the other one. Both seem to be rated at 350-400 lbs.

    I would really appreciate any advice members of this forum can give me regarding the pros/cons of either of these models or their personal experiences. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Welcome BluzNBrews from another PA member! We have had a lot of members from PA alone this year, it's nice to see!

    Anyways... I think I know of the steps you're speaking of and to be honest, I'm not sure if I've ever seen them featured here on TFP. You can run a quick search by using the search feature with the confer models and see if anything pops up!

    Good luck with your pool! You should order a TF100 to help keep your water balanced as it will be your most used pool tool in your pool tool box, along with your virtual Pool School Manual. you will find many helpful, educational links like:

    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    I recommend the majestic pool steps by innovaplas. We are very happy with them. Easy to set up and they do not float and no algae issues at all. We have fiberglass steps used for mobile homes as our entry steps on the outside. Works great!!!
    24' Sharkline Matrix. Coral Reef Liner. Clearwater II Cartridge Filter. Saltron Retro Salt WaterGenerator. 4x20 Ecosaver Solar Panels, Rover Jr. robot vac. Fiberglass Steps and Lifesaver pool fence/gate.

    Previous pool: 9x18 intex with salt water generator and vinylworks 5x10 deck.
