Looking after your glass

Caring for your pool fence is crucial, but are you cleaning the wrong way? There are lots of little tips and tricks to help ensure that you are caring correctly for your pool and pool fence on the Gold Coast, and there are plenty of tips for cleaning the glass. Frequently cleaning is especially important if your Gold Coast pool gets constant use, or if you live near the water. The chemicals along with seawater in the air can leave streaks on the glass and hasten possible deterioration on your fixtures.

At Absolut Custom Glass we need to clean a considerable amount of glass and so we have developed a quick way to do this that we would like to share with you.

To clean your Pool Fence your will need.

  • A soft inside broom that will not actually scratch the glass.
  • A plastic container or bucket that the Broom will fit inside.
  • Hot water. (not boiling).
  • Rinse Aid or another glass finishing item that is used in dishwashers– the brand won’t make a difference.
  • Cold water– from a hose, or a second bucket.

You simply need to fill a bucket with hot water, and then add 4-5 Tablespoons of Rinse Aid into the bucket. This has prepared your cleaning formula.
Using the basic blend in the bucket, dip a soft broom right into the bucket until it is thoroughly wet.
Well then, using the broom, sweep/mop the glass panel. Make sure that you clean away any visible streaks, marks, or salt residue.
Finally, use the hose to rinse away your cleaning mix, and shift to the next panel.
It should take less than a minute for each panel, and is a nice and quick way to preserve your glass. Pay extra focus to any glass panels that have obvious deposits or streaks on them – this will commonly be the glass panels that are alongside the edge of the pool that you would exit and enter from – these do often tend to get more water splashed on them. These panels may need to be cleaned more frequently, and so using this technique it should keep it easier to clean, (and harder for you to put things off. This is also a great approach to use on external windows and glass– particularly if you have a dog that leaves prints or smudges on your windows.
