Hello all! I'm new here but I have an above ground pool and I'm having my deck built around it. I just put the stairs in yesterday and the deck actually sits a few inches below the aluminum top of the pool. My question is how do I attach the stairs, it came with the paddles for deck attachment but I would have to nail some 4x4's to the deck and just to make the paddle attachments fit, and I really just don't think it will look right. Has anyone else run into this problem? And is there a better way to attach them than adding the 4x4's and not having to purchase new stairs? Any input and pictures help! Thanks everyone!
