Looking after your pool fence is very important, but are you cleaning the best way? There are considerable amounts of little tips and tricks in order to help guarantee that you are caring effectively for your pool and pool fence on the Gold Coast, and there are plenty of tips for cleaning the glass. Habitually cleaning is especially important if your Gold Coast pool gets consistent use, or if you live near the water. The chemicals in addition to seawater in the air can leave streaks on the glass and accelerate 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 wanted to share with you.

To clean your Pool Fence your will need:

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


  1. You simply need to fill a container with hot water, and after that add 4-5 Tablespoons of Rinse Aid into the bucket. This has made your cleaning formula.
  2. Using the basic cleaning formula in the bucket, dip a soft broom right into the bucket until it is thoroughly wet.
  3. Then, using the broom, sweep/mop the glass panel. Make certain that you clean away any visible streaks, marks, or salt residue.
  4. Finally, use the hose to rinse away your cleaning solution, and transfer to the next panel.

It should take under a minute for each panel, and is a nifty and quick way to maintain your glass. Pay extra attention to any glass panels that have prominent residue or streaks on them – this will often 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 regularly, and so with this technique it should make 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– especially if you have a dog that leaves prints or marks on your windows.
