Some pools come with a stainless steel ladder instead of Roman or walk-in steps. Using a ladder is easy if you’re young, fit and healthy, but mobility issues in later life can make using a ladder a challenge for many. 

If you want steps, the customary solution is to install concrete steps in a corner of the pool. However, retrofitting steps is an expensive undertaking which necessitates draining and then relining the pool. For this reason, installing steps after a pool is built is not practical or affordable for most people – especially if the home is rented.

That’s why we’re pleased to introduce our Easy-Access Pool Steps, a more practical and less costly solution than concrete. These white plastic steps come in self-assembly kit form and provide an easy pool entry/exit route for those with mobility or disability issues. 

If you’re a dog-owner, your furry friend might also appreciate our Easy-Access Pool Steps. Reason is, most breeds of dog can swim, but can’t climb a ladder. So, if a dog falls in a pool without a means of escape it will eventually succumb to exhaustion and drown. Many pets are lost this way each year.

FEATURES

  • Sturdy construction – can take up to 180kg.
  • Easy-Access Pool Steps come in kit form. Assemble and install yourself using the detailed instructions provided or we can install for small extra charge.
  • Steps weigh 23kg, but require additional sand ballast  which is poured into the top of the frame using a funnel. We supply suitable sand or you can buy from any pool shop.
  • Comes with two variable-height arms which are used to secure the steps to the pool deck. Shallow pools may require angle brackets instead of arms, which we can supply.
  • Some types of coping stone (eg. raised lip at the edge) may require shims to be placed under the arms. Again, we can supply.

BENEFITS

  • Provides a simple, inexpensive entry/exit route for the pool, for both humans and pets.
  • Steps are of white plastic construction, with no metal components. Easy to clean, nothing to rust.
  • Textured stair treads provide a non-skid surface.
  • Handles each side of the steps provide some support.
  • The steps are removable, so if you move house or no longer need, you can lift them out of the pool.
  • Send us photos of you or your dog using your steps and we’ll credit you €20 online for each and every pic we use on our website. This is a one-off payment. Pics must be landscape format, high resolution and forwarded to us by email.
  • Because the steps come in kit form, we can ship overseas.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Assembly time: 20-30 mins. Pool installation time (2 people) 40 mins. Tools required: rubber or plastic mallet, drill, fibre/plastic inserts (eg. Rawlplug), longish s/s or galvanised screws and medium-size funnel. Plus, 25kg pool filter sand or glass beads (builders’ sand not suitable).

Steps can be positioned just about anywhere in the shallow end of the pool, providing the floor surface is level. Care should be taken not to obstruct skimmers, inlet jets or lights.

Note the height of the top step in the first image in ‘More Helpful Info.’ below. See how this compares with your pool depth at the shallow end.

These steps may not be helpful for very small dogs/puppies; you know best what your dog is capable of climbing.

WARRANTY: One-year conditional warranty is provided.
