Using Anti-Slip Tape to prevent slipping on stairs, ramps & pool decks
Around your pool, you probably have stairs, ramps, or walkways that are slippery when wet. Anti-Slip Tape is a great product for these areas because it is easy to apply, resistant to water, and works effectively
Changing the slippery surface
As a last resort, you can also change the entire surface of the slippery pool deck. This would involve removing the old surface and then applying a completely new surface, It could become costly and might disrupt your life for a few weeks. The main factor you have to consider is that once the new surface is installed, make sure you don’t have to apply an anti-slip product still to stop it from being slippery. You don’t want to go through all of that effort for nothing
