If your pool deck contains steps or ladders for accessing the water, make sure they are secure. Pool steps or ladders that float off can become annoying for swimmers but could pose a significant danger should someone fall through as they climb them or descend them – this poses both safety risks and an inconvenience if someone trips and falls.
Pool step weights make securing steps simple. Available in various sizes and designs, these handy accessories simply need to be filled up with sand to provide enough stability. Plus, these weights can work with many types of steps while being easily removable during winter when closing down your pool!
Some steps feature purpose-designed compartments designed to hold sand for weighting down, so if this applies to you, consult the instructions to see how much sand and where to add it. Alternatively, containers like sand bags may also be used; provided they are carefully placed so as not to interfere with swimmers or cause trip hazards on patio areas. Such methods work particularly well when used with steps that feature extra-wide fill spouts that simplify and streamline filling processes and increase convenience.
