Wedding Cake II
The top step can be removed and the weight goes inside the step and the step snaps into position. Has anyone used this step? If so are you happy with it? I would like to add this type of step and want to know if this is a good brand.

Zea,

I don't have that particular model, but (aside from the removable top step) it looks identical to mine, right down to the handrail, and the vent holes. Mine is several years old. It came with the house, so I don't know how old, it really is, but at least 4 years. It is very solid construction. The only issues I have with it is that my Kreepy Krawly loves cake and is always stuck on them, and the steps tend to move around a bit. Even with over 100# of weights, it moves when the kids play on it. I wound up adding a step pad this season after seeing all the wear caused last season. I also have a second handrail that I have connected to the deck. It doesn't move now :D

I also cut several 3" vent holes in the sides of the bottom step to improve water flow, after tracking last year's algae outbreak to the sandbags under the step. (This was before I'd heard of TFP or BBB. :) I also don't use bags of sand anymore.) The material is heavy enough that the additional holes in the bottom edge don't seem to have a significant impact on the strength of the step.

Hope this helps,
Tim.
