I was wondering how people deal with dirty feet and how large of hard surface area people have around their ladders/steps to keep their pool clean. We have a lot of bare dirt surface around the pool from just having built it and I've stuck in some flagstone, but not sure it is enough. It gets fairly hot too. We have 3 little pigs (kids).
We have been through the footbath idea before with the softside pool, but they get dirty too quickly even with adding bleach. I planted grass, so maybe just need to deal until it gets going.
