    Above-Ground Steps & Ladders

    1. 1 decade ago
      Our best pool investment!
      Our old ladder steps were falling apart last year so we needed a new set. With grandparents watching our young son a few days a week, we thought these stairs would make getting in and out of the pool much easier. These pool steps were not a disappointment! Grandmas can now get in and out without a problem, and our son can sit safely on the steps and play. They require some time to assemble and fill with sand. They also require some extra help to get in and out of the pool. Otherwise, they are a ... read more great addition to an above gound pool

      great product
      This stair system is really a great product. From being on my feet all day for my job, they are shot. The regular exit stairs to our pool were so narrow that it was all I could do to get out of the pool. So for the last year I didn't get in. I love my pool. So looked in your catalog,because we ordered quite a few things from In the Swim. There they were and what a blessing. Now if you could do something about the weather.

      Ladder
      Nice ladder for the price. Didn't want a big bulky ladder. This one is perfect

      Great ladder
      I'm very happy with my new ladder it's very sturdy and safe the only issue that I have is that the ladder is straight up and down instead of having a slant to it but I do like the ladder and I feel like it is very safe for my family and it won't rust or leave paint chips in my pool

      Pool Ladder
      Had a vertical ladder before this one that was difficult to climb and wobbly, and this ladder is much more stable and easier to use when getting out of the pool. So I think this is a very nice ladder for the price.

      Great Ladder
      So thankful to find a ladder that is made to screw onto a wood deck. We bought a 52 inch above ground pool after our 19 year old pool collapsed. All the new pools are 52 inches so our deck had to be modified because the old pool was 48 inches. We built a step up that made is over 55 inches high. You can not walk or step on the new plastic/resin top pools, so we had to build the deck over the top rails. This ladder was the 3rd ladder we purchased and we were so happy to finally find one that ... read more worked. We also have a sloped bottom so the middle is a bit deeper. This ladder was exactly what we were looking for. Also made in USA which was a real plus!!!

      Above ground ladder
      I bought this ladder to replace one that has lasted over 8 years. I feel Like I'll be lucky to get two out of this one. The plastic is much l Thinner and the base you stand on as you get out of pool is really flimsy. The price was decent but the quality feels lacking. We shall see.

      Made my pool functional again!!
      Bought his ladder over a stock above ground pool ladder that was way to dangerous to use. This ladder has allowed my family to use our year old pool without worrying about the ladder collapsing or having to have a second person to assist getting into our 18' x 48" Intek pool

      Easily assembled very solid
      so far this system is great it is solid and easily assembled the only downside was with some of the hardware very small and not very secure in holding the top step in place they have fallen out twice we are trying to find something more secure in holding the top step on otherwise it is a great secure ladder

      5 stars!!
      I have an Intex 52" above ground pool... and i wasn't sure if was going to be fair at best but i am so impressed with the quality for the price. Some of my family are large people and the ladder is spectacular. ....Worth every penny!!....also shipped very fast...

      Wonderful Ladder Mat
      I am buying this mat to replace the one I bought five years ago! I think I got my money's worth out of it. Have been very happy with the mat, goes in place very easy and has no 'float back' stays in place.

      Looks like it would work great, IF I had NEEDED it
      When I ordered this item online, I thought I was going to need this Step Pad because we had an above ground pool. Then I had an accident, ended up hospitalized for a month, & need physical therapy. Because I need to exercise my legs, we took down our shallow above ground pool and installed an inground pool with built in steps. So there's no need for this item.

      Ladder pad
      I bought this pad to protect my pool liner from possible damage caused by the ladder rubbing against the liner. I finally put my ladder in the pool yesterday. I was delighted when I put the ladder pad in the water, it went right to the botton. It was easy to place under the ladder. I don't think that I will have any problems with it floating up or moving out of place. The size is perfect and has extra material on each side incase of movement. Hopefully the $40 will be well worth it. I also hope ... read more that I can use it for a few years before replacing. We'll just have to wait and see.

      ladder conversion kit
      The new conversion kit was much heavier and more durable than the other pieces that were on the latter. I'm very well pleased with them and the shipping time was very short

      Did the job nicely
      Although I think that $40 + shipping was a bit much for 4 pieces of plastic. It was exactly what I need to convert the step portion of my old ladder into a usable step into the pool of the deck. I guess nothing is cheap anymore

      Awesome stairs!
      These stairs are exactly what we needed for our above ground pool. They were easy to assemble, install, and are very sturdy. Highly recommend!

      Deck flanges are a seperate item!!
      Be sure to order your deck flanges along with this item. Holes in plastic steps may need trimmed for the pipe to slide through easily. Overall looks like a good product. In The Swim shipping our deck flanges in a couple days. Will update review when they arrive.

      Good quality
      Bought this specifically so I could cut off a few inches from the back of the "U" to accommodate a taller height from the bottom of my pool to the surface of the deck I built over the top of it - worked like a charm. A little difficult to put together because the holes on the steps didn't quite line up with the holes in the rails, but it was nothing a little persistence couldn't fix. Overall a big improvement in quality over the ladder that came with the pool when I bought it.

      Sturdy pool steps
      Love the whole setup! Very easy to put together and use. Love the lockable gate for safety .
    2. 2 years ago
      Steps were easy to assemble. Instructions were well thought out. Connecting kit posed a bit more problem. Enclosed instructions were vague at best. We finally figured it out but it took up a whole Saturday(at least 8 hours). But we are generally pleased with the finished product.

      Great for backyard w/o a fence
      We bought our current pool last year and it only had a standard ladder. Our autistic daughter, who normally is a fish during the summer, refused to climb the ladder and if we lifted her into the pool, she became hysterical. This year we found the staircase system and enclosure. She loves it and the enclosure gives us peace of mind that she can not get in the pool without us opening it for her.

    More About Above Ground Pool Steps & Above Ground Pool Ladders

    Above ground pool steps and ladders are important pool equipment for the safety of pool users and pets. In The Swim offers a variety of steps and ladders for every above ground pool owner’s budget, whether or not your pool has a full or partial pool deck

    For above ground pools without a deck, a two-sided ladder like the Roll Guard A-frame safety ladder and the Evolution A-frame safety ladder are useful necessities. Take a 'step-up' in quality and size with two-sided pool step systems that feature an outside safety gate such as the Deluxe Entry System or the Combo Step Entry System that combines wide and sturdy stairs outside the pool, and a thick yet unobtrusive ladder inside the pool. Double sided pool A-frame ladders are weighted with sand or pebbles, to sit solidly on the pool floor and stay firmly in place. 

    For above ground pools with a deck, you can use the single pool ladder or the wider and safer pool steps, connected to your pool deck. For above ground pool ladders, look at the Heavy Duty In-Pool Ladder, or the 5-Step Stainless Steel pool ladders. Above ground pool steps are selected from 4 models, including the popular Staircase Steps and the elegant Curve Step System. Weighted pool steps connect to your pool deck and make a stable way for kids and adults to enter and exit the pool safely. Pool steps or stairs also make a great place to sit in the pool!

    Vinyl Works and Confer above ground pool ladders and steps are made from roto-molded thermoplastics, designed to be easily assembled and quickly installed, with all parts and complete instructions included. The most cost-efficient models include the single pool ladder that attaches to your pool deck or a double sided pool ladder for above ground pools without a deck. The more expensive models include locking safety gates, wide and deep treads and platform, solid handrails, and weight ratings of up to 300 lbs. Using a ladder pad or step pad is recommended to protect your pool liner.

    If you have questions regarding above ground pool steps or above ground ladders, please call or email our pool professionals at In The Swim - 1-800-288-7946.
