What maintenance do my step need?
To prevent algea formation, put your water hose inside your pool step when adding water. This will increase water circulation. It is also recommended to take your step out of the pool ounce for cleaning with a bleaching product mixed with water. This is meant to prevent algae to embody inside your step.If possible, use a pressure jet hose. If you start having problem with your pool water do not forget to clean the water inside your step.
There is a small hole in my security fence (dimension of a thumb) located at the top end of it. Is it normal?
This hole allows the water to infiltrate and to mix with the sand, which gives the necessary water ballasting. Do not fill your fence to the top; fill it up at about 3/4.

What should I do with my step when it is time to close my pool?
Your step has to be removed from the water for protecting it against freezing and avoid a possible cracking.
