How To Clean A Mesh Pool Fence

Just as a pool owner would clean various surfaces around the pool, a mesh pool fence also requires some sprucing up to get rid of accumulated dirt. In fact, the pool’s chemicals often get into contact with the pool fence when water splashes on it. Such cleanups also eliminate the health hazard that dirt posses to your kids and other members of your family. Moreover, certain cleaning chemicals may have an abrasive effect on a pool fence. Hence, it’s advisable to consider using cleaning products that will not ruin the pool fence. For instance, mild soapy water can be a good bet for your cleaning needs.

When it comes to giving your mesh pool fence a scrub, here are a few tips and processes to bear in mind:

  • First, an occasional rinse that involves hosing down the mesh would eliminate pool chemicals that may have accumulated on the fence.

  • Depending on the staining on your mesh, you may have to consider putting in some extra effort to scour it. A bucket-full of water and mild detergent will do the trick in most cases. The cleaning solution can also be supplemented with vinegar- an ideal acid-based cleaning agent.
  • The scrubbing process should involve the use of a soft brush. Try to steer clear of rough brushes as they can scratch the pool posts or ruin the mesh. By working on an individual section before moving to the next, you would be assured of a more effective cleanup.
  • Just as you would soak clothes to soften tough stains, so would you have to do to your mesh when dealing with stubborn Stains. Doing so would ease the cleaning process by getting rid of the grime.
  • To avoid run-off (whereby the soapy detergent on the mesh trickles to lower levels), work your way from top to bottom while rinsing the fence. This will ascertain a better finish and zero detergent remnants on the pool fence.
  • Should you be considering storing your pool fence after cleaning (in case of the removable type), eliminate the risk of rusting by allowing the fence to dry completely.
  • Lastly, so as not to void your warranty, consider removing your pool fence in case you need to use abrasive cleaners like chlorine on the patio. You can also lubricate the hook holding the mesh in place using a silicone spray to minimize risks of corrosion.

It is critical for pool owners to restore the sparkle in their mesh pool fences so as to enjoy the environment around their pools. Furthermore, keeping the fence in tiptop condition will minimize the risks associated with neglect. Thus, by maintaining the integrity of your pool fence, you can be certain of its longevity, greater efficiency, comfort, and greater aesthetic value from your investment.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
