Ladder and hand rail spacing/locations

Posted by Speckledhen (My Page) on

Long story short, the concrete deck had to be ripped up and a new one is being poured. Since I had to fire the PB, I need to know the exact dstance from the water edge to place the hand rail for the steps, and the ladder out of the deep end. Does anyone know the specs for these? It's a vinyl pool with aluminum bullnose coping. Also, for the ladder, is there a standard location? By code, does it have to be in a specific spot?

RE: Ladder and hand rail spacing/locations

I'm not sure of the spacing-- but I believe the ladder needs to be in the deep end of the pool. Walk in stairs are typically in the shallow end.
