    Why do some a frame ladders say "not for use with soft sided or intex" pools?

    Hi, I have read through a number of threads where people have had success with using various different brands of a frame ladders with their intex pools. I have found a good deal on an Integrity A-frame ladder and was going to try it with my 16' round ultra frame pool. I believe some people have even said this particular ladder works well with their intex. So why the warnings like: "Designed for use on ridgid wall above ground pools only. Not for soft wall pools." ? Is this just for liability, in case of issues or something?

    Perhaps they are talking about the Easyset type pools, with walls that are not straight up and down.

    Probably liability if you lean the ladder against a soft sided pool and it punctures the liner.... my best guess anyway.

    That looks like a pretty nice ladder. Do you know what brand it is?
    Have you found it to be a lot more stable than the intex one? ( i am sure anything would be
