Then, can you use above ground pool steps in an inground pool?

It is important to note that above ground pool steps and ladders cannot be used in an in-ground pool. They are designed to attach to the top rail of an above ground pool and/or a wooden deck only. For above ground pools without a deck, an A-frame ladder is used to provide access to and from the pool.
