I'm thinking of getting these steps. Anyone have any insight? This is my first pool. Should I be worried about algae build up with the back being open? Just it be attached to the deck or can I just use the weights?
I think with the color, and being open it's less likely. Being open will allow better exposure to freshly Chlorinated water (good circulation assumed) than those that just barely take in water that keeps them submerged.
The open back will not save you from algae. Got some....been there.....done that! I've additionally drilled MANY 3/4 or 1" holes all over the place on mine to help water circulate through them. Welcome.
