Replacing vinyl liner pool steps is costly and unnecessary. These steps are fiberglass and can last 60 or more years, if cared for properly. But you must replace the white coating, swimming pool gel coat, once every 20 years.

Even after the 20 years, the steps can still be repaired or refinished by any DIY pool owner. has the products and the help you need to restore worn or torn fiberglass (plastic) steps.

Do not allow fiberglass to be used as a repair for plastic steps, regardless of the type plastic (rovel, weatherpro, loran, centrex) all are ABS plastic and fiberglass cannot form a permanent bond with ABS. Only Methyl Methacrylate Adhesives will bond ABS properly.Yes. I take it this in a inground vinyl pool.. With the pool drained most anyone good with fiberglass repaires can refinish.. Order new steps from your local pool supplier or from the web. Examples:
