Helllllppppp!!! Last year my pool guy had to cut the deck flange because the bolts were rusted on. Do you sell the deck flange for the Merlin King ' Wedding Cake Steps? If so I will order now. Thanks in advance.
Hi, Is this stairs made for inground pool as well? and is it easy to install? Also, is it liner friendly?
Hi. This step is not recommended for use in an inground pool. It is easy to install and safe for vinyl liners using a Step Pad.
Can I use the steps without the handrail? Are they weighted down with the water of the pool or do they need sand?
Hi, Carrie. The handrail is removable, The step will have to be weighted down with sand or gravel. You can refer to the Aqua Staircase Installation Instructions.
Can the handrails on the king be adjusted? Thank you !
Hi. The handrails are not adjustable, only the deck flange.
Can it be used for an in ground pool?
We don't suggest this step for an inground pool as normally inground pools have a 42" wall meaning you would have to step up from the pool deck to reach the first step.
Does this unit have one or two handrails
Hi, It has two hand rails.
There is a (sanded) beveled slope where the pool liner floor meets the pool liner wall. Do the King steps take this into account?
Hi, G. Roberts. I confirmed with the manufacturer that the step design do take into account the pool cove.
If you keep up your pool through the winter do have to remove them through the cold months? Will it damage them if you don't?
Good morning Brenda, This product is made from pvc with stainless steel hardware. You can leave this in the pool if you keep up with water chemistry but if you are going to cover or winterize you will want to remove as the handrail will be in the way of a cover.
we want the 2 rail why do you show no, 30125 with 2 hand rails and also the same number with 1 rail?
do you sell just the handle for the steps...
Hello Linda, I would contact MERLIN the manufacturer to see if they carry replacement rails, we only sell the full unit.
I do not want to use the deck flange since our deck was built to come right up to the pool, will the sand bags be sufficient to keep steps in place?
Hello Bob, not attaching a deck flange could cause several dangers, I would contact Merlin Industries to better help you with another way to secure the steps without causing any type of safety hazards www.merlinindustries.com
I am looking for drop in pool steps for our in ground pool , 43 inch depth These look perfect will they work ?
Hi Judy, This step can be used in an in-ground pool that is 43" deep.
Does this unit sit in the water by itself or is it weighted with sand?
This unit sits in the pool and is attached to the pool deck with a deck flange.I f you do not have a pool deck then you can use the Pool Entry System Complete (Inside & Outside Steps W/ Gate). The steps weigh approximately 95 pounds and are not weighted with sand. These steps will not work with a sloped bottom pool.
Is there a mat designed to be put under these steps?
Yes this Step Pad here is designed for the Merlin steps.
I am looking for a drop in pool step. At least 42 to 44 inches high but can be as high as 48 inches. I like stainless rails and would like two of them for the stairs. Our pool is 56 inches from floor to top of deck. We like the Oasis model but it is only 33 inches high. Suggestions. The model shown "The King" looks good but can it come with 2 hand rails and in stainless steel rather than PVC. Thank you.
Hi, Jerry. The Merlin AG Pool Step - Aqua Staircase "The King" part number 30125 is only available in the white PVC handrail.
i need an above ground ladder, with 2 railings. made of sturdy apponents, that wont bend when you are trying to get out.i am 79 years old and have had 3 knee replacements, i can get in my pool but cant get out!!!!!!!!!! railings dont give me any sure thing to pull against.
Carole, The Merlin AG Pool Step - Aqua Staircase "The King" will be an option if you have a pool deck, if you do not have a pool deck then you can use the Pool Entry System Complete (Inside & Outside Steps W/ Gate).
Does this step system meet Illinois Health Dept regulations for circulation, tread width, riser height? (12" tread width, <= 12 " riser height, good circulation for reduced instances of algae, contrast color to a white-painted, concrete pool. .) Is the system fastened to the edge of the pool such as using the existing "cupholders" of a standard ladder in the shallow end of a pool (36" water depth)?.
Jerry, To find out if this Merlin AG Pool Step - Aqua Staircase "The King" meets Illinois Health Dept regulations you'll have to contact Merlin Industries, Inc. at 609-807-1000. This Step System can be mounted to your deck using a resin flange ans is 42.5" high not including the handrail so it will be about 6.5" above your water level but may be the right hight to your deck.
Will the Merlin Ag pool steps work on a sloped bottom pool?
These steps will not work with a sloped bottom pool. All pool steps will need a flat bottom.
Will the Merlin AG pool steps work with a 52 in. above ground pool? The deck is about 1.5 to 2 inches below the top of the pool.
The Aqua Staircase is 42.5" high. That would make the step riser a reasonable 9.5" in a 52" deep pool
Does the steps on the Merlin AG pool step come in different heights?
The Merlin step does just come in one size. The height from the bottom of step to the top step is roughly 43" so on a 54" wall pool you have about an 11" step down from the top rail to the first step. The Grand Entrance step on this page is 47" tall for a 7" step down
What are the measurements of the Merlin AG Pool steps?
The measurement from the bottom to the top of the stairs is 42.5". The base of the stairs are 46" wide and 44" deep.
What do the steps weigh?
The steps weigh approximately 95 pounds.
What is the weight limit for this step?
Per the manufacturer, this staircase is designed to support 700 pounds.
Does the Merlin Pool Step package include one or two railings?
This pool step package includes one railing.
(5 out of 5 stars) Perfect for our application

Pros: Very Sturdy-Similar anchoring to previous steps.
Cons: None Yet
We were looking for a set of steps to replace an existing 10 year old set of pool steps. The Aqua Staircase was very similar to what we had and was the perfect replacement set. The Aqua Staircase is more durable and heavier duty than the previous set.
