A glass fence allows you to set boundarylines or secure your swimming pool, but still keep an open space or retain a beautiful view. In order to keep these features you should follow these five tips:
1. Skip the Glass Cleaner
Avoid commercial bleach-based cleaners
If you’ve tried to use a glass cleaner on your pool fence, you may have noticed smudges or smears left behind. That’s because commercial glass cleaners leave an unwanted residue on your fence that can never be fully eliminated. Avoid bleach-based cleaners too, as these will etch the glass over time.
2. Keep it Simple
Microfibre cloth and warm soapy water
The best way to clean your glass pool fence is with a clean microfibre cloth and warm soapy water. Be sure to use a non-abrasive cloth. Rinse off with a low-pressure garden hose. Air dry or use a good quality squeegee to remove excess water.
3. Clean Regularly
Reduce the frequency of cleaning
Cleaning a glass pool fence is far easier when you keep on top of it. Hosing down the glass after use of the pool will remove any salt or chlorinated water, reducing the frequency of cleaning. Then clean as often as necessary to keep dirt and grime at bay.
4. Remove Stubborn Stains
By using a mix of white vinegar and water
If there is a lot of build-up on the glass, you may need to use a mix of white vinegar and water. Spray the solution onto the glass and allow to soak for several minutes. A damp microfibre cloth should then be used to wipe over the area.
5. Consider Easy Clean Treatment
Glass treatment products make it easy
Prevent salt and chlorine water staining by using an approved glass treatment product. With non-stick, easy clean properties and additional protection against salt corrosion, this is an investment that pays for itself, leaving you with more time to enjoy your pool!
