Frequently asked questions for Ladder accessories:
INTEX ladders are rustproof, but not rust-resistant. Please remove the ladder after each use. An incorrectly adjusted pH value or too high a chlorine value can cause rust to form in a very short time. If you operate your pool with salt water, you will need a zinc plate, which is used for equipotential bonding for ladders in connection with salt water systems. Salt water and salt water vapours can otherwise cause the material to rust.
The maximum load weight of 136 kg must not be exceeded.
Stainless steel pool ladders are rustproof, but not rust-resistant. When using pool ladders in a salt water pool, a zinc plate should always be used. The zinc plate serves as potential equalisation for stainless steel ladders in connection with salt water disinfection. It prevents rusting and helps prevent corrosion of your stainless steel ladder.
Mounting the zinc plate (art. no. 018259): Screw the zinc plate to the outside of your stainless steel ladder. The installation must be done on the inside of the pool and below the water level. Make sure that the zinc plate is renewed every season.
The load capacity of the INTEX safety ladders is a maximum weight of 136 kilograms. For your safety, the ladder may only be used by one person at a time. The load capacity of stainless steel ladders, on the other hand, is a maximum of 150 kilograms.
If the zinc plate has already attracted a lot of rust particles, we recommend replacing it. It is recommended to replace the zinc plate every season.
A solid and heavy floor element with a non-slip surface can also be used as a fastening option and for the stability of the access ladder. The floor element is made of high-quality and durable WPC (=Wood Plastic Composite) material and can be simply placed on top - without drilling.
