:question:

Just inspected a split entry with the only problem being the above ground pool. The steps leading up to the deck have no handrail, do I assume that one must be installed or is HUD more relaxed on steps of this type?

Are you out there Ben V?

Sure I'm out here in cyberspace. Cleaning up lots of appraisals that had to be emailed today. Seven out already and I'll only be here until 2 or 3 am tonight.....Yuk

Hey, a riser(step) is a riser(step). It doesn't matter where it's located. If they can fall down it, it needs a handrail. How about a railing around the deck so they can't wander off the side??? It's OK to wander off into the water but not off into the ground :p :p I think your best evidence that a handrail would be needed is that even those cheapie pool ladders have grab/handrails on them.

How safe is the pool from kids just wandering in and falling in. Is it far enough out of the ground?? fenced?? Lot's of things to look at there. GFI outlet for the pump???

If in doubt about anything, just VC 11G it for a certification from the municipality that it meets all local codes. If they don't like it, they can always remove it and fill in the hole :D :D
