MAINTENANCE AND CARE

MAINTENANCE AND CARE

Poolsafe Fences are relatively maintenance free, though by following a few simple steps your new Fence or Gate will look and operate like the day you purchased it for many years to come.

Steel Fences:

  • Give the fence a wash down about once a month, keeping it clean from any dirt, raised soil, leaves or bird droppings that may eat into the paint.
  • For areas near the ocean or salt water pools washing the fence should be done more frequently if possible.
  • Do not leave wet towels or moist objects hanging over the fence for extended periods of time to avoid any corrosion issues.

 

Gates:

  • Standard Butt Hinges should be oiled when required for ease of operation.
  • Spring Hinges should be checked regularly for closing tension and adjusted when required. This is a good time to oil the hinges as well.
  • Ball Bearing Hinges should be greased every six months.

Steel Fences:

  • Give any aluminum a wash about once a month to keep it clean from dirt.
  • Glass can be kept clean with any regular glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
  • Stainless fittings are virtually maintenance free yet may require a light clean with a stainless polish from time to time to maintain the new look.
  • Use caution when closing glass gates

Thank you using Poolsafe Fencing for your fencing requirements. We’re sure your new fence will give you many years of relatively maintenance free use.
