  • Suggestions for getting in above ground pool?

    I have a small above ground pool that I enjoy getting in. I'm not very big so I usually have someone pick me up and put me in the pool. I was wondering if anyone has any other ideas for getting in? Maybe some kind of lift?

      Do you have a ceiling lift? My dad made me https://www.carecure.net/forum/showt...light=swimming for our pool.

            Thanks for info sci-nurse, those lifts are nice but a little pricey for me.

            Emi2 - i don't have a ceiling lift. is that box on your lift from your ceiling lift?

              My insurance company paid for the lift at my parents swimming pool.

                I just checked with my neighbor who has a small crane or lift in the back of his pickup. The boom raises and lowers with a hydrolic cylinder like a Hoyer lift and the cable is raised and lowered with a hand winch. He said it cost under $500 installed and has a lift rating of 1000 lbs. If I had a Hoyer lift sling under me, he could easily hook on and get me up more than 4 feet, probably 6-7. Maybe that wil give you some ideas.

                If you do not have a pickup, maybe your pool has a deck or something a lift like this could be mounted on.

                  I use to have an above ground pool and bought plastic steps. I'd transfer to the floor of the deck and then ease my way in down each step into the water. The steps as I remember were around 300 bucks.
