You’ve got your pool furniture, you’ve got your inflatable toys, you have your diving board. There’s one thing left to make your backyard swimming pool complete – the ladder! It may not the most exciting part of your swimming pool, but there’s no doubt that it is an essential component to its ease of use. If you take a look around a pool store, you may realize just how many ladders there actually are. If you want your list of choices to be made easier, then here is the list of 5 above ground pool ladders to consider:
1. A-Frame White Integrity Above Ground Ladder
Its high impact resistant material and anti-slip treads means both durability, and safe entry and exit for all of your pool loving friends. It has 5 steps that are 10 inches apart, and each step is 19 inches wide. It does have a limit of 300 pounds and should not be used with inflatable pools.
2. Roll Guard A-frame Safety Ladder
Comfort and ease are the names of this pool ladder game. Offering 6 steps with curved side rails, using the ladder for getting in and out of the pool is a breeze. To prevent entering from behind the ladder, there are integrated side barriers for additional safety. You can adjust this ladder for pools between 48 and 56 inches in height.
3. Deck-to-Pool Integrity Above Ground Ladder
Similar to the A-frame above ground ladder, this product also has five steps that are 10 inches apart, has anti-slip treads, and a 23 inch wide ladder. It is adjustable to three different heights, and can be converted to deck-to-pool, but you will need a separate kit for that.
4. A-Frame 54 inch Above Ground Ladder
When you need the right quality ladder at an affordable price, consider this option. As the name indicates, it is a 54 inch ladder that has 6 steps 16.5 inches wide each. It doesn’t support quite as much weight – 250 pounds – as the previous ladders, but it still gets the job done. Also not intended for soft-sided or inflatable pools.
5. Resin Above Ground Pool Deck Ladder
The most affordable out of the five options is the resin above ground deck ladder. You can adjust it for 3 heights and it and supports up to 200 pounds.
