Install hand rails and ladders to provide easy access in and out of the pool.  Rails are something that people don’t normally think of when they build a pool because they are usually young and agile but as we age the use of rails become more popular.  These day rails can become a real feature of the pool with their modern ‘designer’ looks and use of marine grade material makes the rails and ladders last for many years.
