Choosing The Right Pool Enclosure

For the various types of pool enclosures, it is necessary to provide care and cleaning. Regular maintenance will ensure that the enclosure lasts and requires fewer expensive repairs. Understanding the necessary care should play a big role in your pool enclosure choice. Here is a little insight into what to expect from each option:

Choosing The Right Pool Enclosure

1. Glass

  • Use warm water and soap to clean
  • Do not clean when it is hot
  • Do not use adhesives or tape around the glass
  • Take care when mowing the lawn near the glass
  • Never use cleaners with phosphoric acid
  • Regularly tighten and replace any fasteners, screws and bolts

2. Screen

  • Clean with a soft brush and mild soap or power wash
  • Clean on a bi-monthly basis during humid months
  • Use bleach for mold and mildew problems
  • Landscape around the screen so that overhanging trees and bushes don’t drop branches and leaves

3. Aluminum

  • Power wash or use a soft sponge to avoid scratching
  • Be mindful of the chemicals you use so that they don’t react
  • Inspect the aluminum frame annually to identify any potential faults in the structure
  • Do not allow individuals to climb on the structure
  • Replace and tighten screws, fasteners and bolts regularly
