DIY Glass Cleaner for Your Pool Fence

DIY Glass Cleaner for Your Pool Fence

A glass pool fence can keep children out of your pool and the area around it and prevent a tragic accident. Unlike other types of fences, a glass fence won’t block the view of your yard and the surrounding scenery. Its elegant aesthetic can even raise your home’s resale value.

Homeowners often assume that a glass fence is difficult to maintain and think that if they have one installed, they’ll have to spend every weekend scrubbing it to keep it clean. That’s not true. There is actually very little work required to keep a glass pool fence looking pristine.

How to Clean Your Glass Fence

First of all, don’t use a regular glass cleaner on your pool fence. Tempered glass is different than standard glass. If you use glass cleaner on your pool fence, it will leave behind a residue.

All you need to keep your glass pool fence clean and sparkling is a mixture of dish soap and water. Wipe it on with a sponge or microfiber cloth, then rinse the fence with an ordinary garden hose. You can use a squeegee to remove excess water or simply allow the fence to air dry.

If you have a pool in your yard and it’s not enclosed, you should install a fence around it. Even if you don’t have children of your own, neighborhood kids can decide to enter your yard without permission and go for a swim. A child can drown in a matter of seconds.

Homeowners insurance companies consider a pool an “attractive nuisance,” or a feature that is both dangerous and appealing to children. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to have a barrier around a pool to keep children out. If you don’t and a child drowns, you can be held liable.
