Deep Swimming Area -  Doughboy’s proprietary expandable liners allow us to construct your pool with a swimming area up to 7 feet in depth, depending on the pool size.  The standard depth in an aboveground pool will be about 4 feet, so a deep swim area provides great variety and more ways to enjoy your pool!  Access to hydrant or hauled water is required for installation.



Entry Systems

Above-ground OptionsThe In-Wall Step System from Doughboy Pools - bringing in-ground pool styling and functionality to the above-ground pool structure, this built-in step is the ideal entry system for pools with decking being constructed around them.  The entry is made of acrylic-coated fiberglass and constructed as an integrated part of the pool wall, maximizing your in-pool floor space and eliminiating any obstruction for pool cleaning as compared to a drop-in step.



Above-ground OptionsThe Majestic Step - our largest in-pool aboveground step is intended for pools that will have decking bult around them.  Its radius steps provide younger swimmers a place to sit or stand in the pool while others can still enter or exit the pool.  The step rests on suction cups on the pool floor for added stability and protection of the poo liner, and includes a niche for optional LED lighting to be mounted into the step assembly.









Aboveground UpgradesThe Opera Step – the Opera step’s compact design features two handrails for added safety.  This step is intended for pools with

entry decking and includes braces that sho

uld be mounted to the wood deck.

Like the Majestic Step from Innovaplas, the Opera Step is single-piece roto-molded resin design, the best in-pool step design for maximum structural strength and rigidity
