Best Way To Clean Glass Pool Fence - Step By Step

Glass panels are a fantastic option for swimming pool fencing.

These fences allow you to experience your yard as one expansive space rather than separating it into different, compartmentalised areas. Glass is an aesthetic option, so long as it is clean. So, how do you clean a glass pool fence?

In this article, we will discuss the best products for cleaning a glass pool fence and provide step-by-step instructions on how to get it done properly.

Best Products For Cleaning A Glass Pool Fence

The best way to clean pool glass is by using a proper glass cleaner. Many of these products are available for in-home use, and you may even have one on hand for your home’s windows and mirrors.

While regular glass cleaners can sometimes be effective, these are intended for indoor use and are therefore less concentrated chemically. Because glass pool fences are likely to gather more debris than simple smudges on windows, we recommend purchasing a glass cleaner that is tough on debris even when used in outdoor settings.

Our recommended product is Lo-Chlor’s Glass and Chrome Cleaner. This solution is available in a 750mL spray bottle, has long-lasting results, and boasts a streak-free shine!

How To Clean A Glass Pool Fence

Cleaning glass panels is fairly straightforward. However, if it is your first time, follow these steps for the best way to clean your glass pool fence.

Rinse Off The Fence

Outdoor furniture, like fencing, tends to get much dirtier than the furniture and fixtures inside your home. Glass fencing can collect debris over time, including bird droppings and grass clippings.

Before cleaning your fence with a cleaning solution, we recommend that you hose off any large debris thoroughly with fresh water. By removing larger amounts of waste with water, you will use up less glass cleaner and achieve streak-free results more quickly.

After washing your fence off with the hose, allow it to dry entirely.

Use A Cleaning Solution

After your fence is dry, use the glass cleaning solution. You will also need a clean rag or paper towels. Working on one panel at a time, cover the glass in the cleaning solution and then wipe it clean using large, circular sweeping motions.

You should use enough of the cleaning solution to dampen the entire surface of the glass. Using excess cleaner does not help get your glass clean faster, so once you have distributed the cleaner, it is time to focus on old-fashioned elbow grease.

If streaks get left behind while you are cleaning, this usually means that debris was trapped between the glass and the cloth you used to wipe the cleaner away. When you notice this, replace your rag with a clean one and re-polish the section of glass that shows streaks.


Glass pool fences are a great aesthetic option for keeping your pool safe. However, unlike most other types of fencing, glass panels (whether frameless or semi-frameless) need to be cleaned regularly to maintain their transparent appearance and shine.
