    Looking for suggestions for the best above ground pool ladder/steps......

    We put up the Intex Ultra 22' above ground pool last month. We are planning on building a deck and I'd like to get some pool steps. Do you have some you love? I'd love to see pics and links to where you got yours! Thanks for sharing!image.jpg

    I bought my 38" Mighty Steps online. You can plug Mighty Steps into Google and find them online to order.




    I now have them bunge'ed to the lip of the pool which is perfect!

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

    We have a conifer ladder. I will add that we added more screws to the bracing to the bar bracing the legs. Easy to put together ...done by a 17 and two 12 year olds. It is the one with the rolling cover for the steps.

    I don't have an Intex now but when we did, the original steps lasted 2 years before rusting. I rebuilt them using PVC pipe reinforced with rebar and then filled with epoxy to protect against rust. I re-used the original rungs.
    That worked well for a couple of years then I built some new steps using composite decking (6" wide by 3/4" thick). It's completely waterproof and neutral buoyancy. I used 2 8 foot lengths for the side rails and 18" lengths for the rungs all fastened together using stainless steel screws. I added a 2 foot 'rung' to the bottom to spread the load out on the pool bottom. I bolted the ladder to the deck. It was very sturdy and I'm sure it would outlast the pool.
    Don't have the pool any more (or house) so can't post pics.
