How To Clean Glass Pool Fencing

What You Will Need:

  • A garden hose
  • A bucket of warm water
  • Mild detergent
  • Microfibre cloth
  • Sponge
  • Squeegee
  • Glass cleaner (optional)


  1. Hose off your glass pool fencing to remove surface dust and grime.
  2. Fill a bucket with warm water and add a small amount of mild detergent.
  3. Dip a clean sponge into the soapy water and gently wipe the glass panels in a circular motion, working from top to bottom.
  4. Hose off the glass panels, ensuring all detergent is removed.
  1. Use a small microfibre cloth to go over the glass and spigots to prevent streaks and water spots.

Keeping Your Glass Panels Streak Free

If you haven’t cleaned your fence for an extended period (longer than 3 months), you might find that the steps above aren’t enough to remove some marks on your glass pool fencing. If that’s the case, we recommend using a gentle glass cleaner or a spray bottle filled with 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Spritz lightly on the surfaces and use a dry cloth or paper towel to gently buff the glass.

Cleaning & Protecting Your Spigots

The spigots that secure your glass pool fencing or glass balustrades are just as important to maintain as the glass itself. Overtime they may appear tea-stained or discoloured, so you will need to use a specialised stainless steel power cleaner and stainless steel polish to fix it. First, apply the stainless steel power cleaner onto spigots, then rub off with a clean microfibre cloth or sponge. Next apply some stainless steel polish and then rub off with another dry cloth to maintain shine. Try to do this every few months!

Regular Maintenance

To keep your glass pool fencing in top condition, it’s essential to perform regular maintenance checks. Here are some tips:

  • Inspect the glass panels for any signs of damage or wear, such as chips or cracks. If you notice any issues, consult a professional for advice on repairs or replacement.
  • Check the spigots and other hardware for signs of rust or corrosion. Clean and polish as needed to prevent further damage.
  • Ensure all gates and latches are functioning correctly and securely. Lubricate hinges and latches with a silicone-based spray to maintain smooth operation.
  • Keep the area around your pool fence free from debris and clutter to prevent damage to the glass and hardware.
