My wife has bad knees so I am looking for as easy a way to get her in and out of our above ground pool. I have seen a Confer brand step system on line that has steps in and out of the pool with built in railings and even a security gate. Does anyone have a system like this and, if so, how hard are the steps ( I understand they are 12" high) to get up and down? I assume they would be built for people that cannot readily use a ladder. My only other option is to have steps built which my city says has to be done by residential code rules (rather demanding). I live in Kent, Wa. If anybody near me has one of the systems and would be willing to let my wife try them I would be appreciative. I attached a photo of the stairs I am describing if my skill at attaching works.
