I'm hoping this will help others too.
I have a NEPTUNE A-FRAME STEP LADDER in my AGP. It's a hybrid between a regular A-FRAME and STAIRS and it has a locking gate on the outside and has closed in areas behind the steps to prevent entrapment between the steps and the pool wall.
There lies the problem. Last season, in order to get this monster of a ladder to keep from FLOATING up in the pool, we had to secure about 5 1-gallon containers of sand and rock to the underside of the ladder. Now it works great but we were unable to just 'pull' the ladder out of the water at the end of the season.
Having just fought the battle of a huge ALGE problem I can clearly see that there are parts under and around the ladder that I can't reach and scrub. I've got a narrow brush, a long brush, thinking of putting the webbster in there but whatever I do it needs to make a 90 degree turn and even then I know I will miss recessed areas. Jason's sticky on clearing an algae problem says to scrubb EVERYTHING. We can't do this until we can get IN the pool and that won't be for a few more months around here. What to do???
