Storing your Fence
Some pool fence owners never end up needing to take the pool fence down and store it away. However we know that from time to time you may find yourself needing to take down and store your pool fence (parties, remodeling, etc.).
When long term storing your pool fence, make sure you are storing it in a clean and rodent free environment. Rodents love to chew on the mesh material and make their nests in it if left stored and rolled up where they can get to it. Putting the fence into a clean trash can is an a easy way to transport and store your fence. Some pool owners will buy a trash can solely to store their pool fence when down to ensure it’s safe, clean and dry.
Pro Tip: Labeling your sections before you take them down will assist you with knowing where each section goes when you put it back up. Label from left to right or right to left (you pick!) with the number 1, 2, 3, 4 so you can follow the sequence easily. You can also video your fence before you take it down so you have a point of reference. These steps will make putting your fence up a breeze.
Remember that you can also cover the holes in your deck when the fence is removed. Deck plugs come with all fence installations. Misplaced or lost your plugs? You can order replacements online, click here.
Cleaning your Fence
Just like everything else that is left outside in the elements, your pool fence will get dirty. In most cases, its not super noticeable and is simply a layer of dust covering the fence along with possibly some spider webs around the poles.
You can use a light cleaning solution like soap and water (make sure the soap does not get into your pool) or simple green to clean your fence. You can use a soft cloth or mop and apply light pressure from a hose to clean the fence. Do not use brushes that are coarse or washers that apply heavy pressure or you may cause damage to your fence.
