Things You'll Need

  • Phillips screwdriver

  • Adjustable wrench

Intex above ground pools are available in the Easy Set, Ultra Frame and Metal Frame styles. The purchase of a pool includes a pool ladder for safety in entering and exiting the pool. The pool heights range from 30 to 52 inches in height with the included ladder in the same height. Taller ladders include more rungs or steps to obtain their height, though all Intex pool ladders assemble in the same manner.


Step 1

Lay the two sets of ladder legs on the ground with the leg marked "A" on the left and the leg marked "B" on the right. Slide a step onto each mounting fixture on each leg. Press the step inward on the legs. The two sets of legs include one set on the outside of the pool and one set on the inside of the pool.

Step 2

Push the step mounting pins fully into each hole on each side of the steps. There are two holes on each leg per step.

Step 3

Slide the top straight brace labeled "A" onto the top of one "A" leg. Repeat this action to put the "B" brace on the "B" leg. Only use one set of legs at this time.


Step 4

Insert a long fastener from the inside of leg "A" through the top brace. Slide a washer and nut on the protruding end on the outside of the leg. Hold the nut with an adjustable wrench on the outside of the leg and tighten the fastener with a Phillips screwdriver. Repeat this step to fasten the top brace to leg "B."


Step 5

Place a U-shaped rail on top of each straight brace on the ladder. Insert a short fastener through the legs from the inside on each leg. Place a washer and nut on the exterior of each fastener and tighten them as in the previous step with a Phillips screwdriver and an adjustable wrench.

Step 6

Insert the remaining set of legs into the top straight brace holes. Fasten the legs with long fasteners, washers and bolts as you did on the first set of legs in Step 4.

Step 7

Place one set of legs in the pool with the other set of legs on the ground outside of the pool wall.


Press down on each step to ensure they are fastened tightly and do not turn when you mount the ladder.
