Getting Your Pool Christmas ready

It’s official, Covid-19 restrictions are lifting and summer is on its way. 

For those inviting the extended family over for Christmas, it’s time for the annual preparation. Cleaning the BBQ, tending to the garden and cleaning your pool are just some of the tasks required to get your backyard ready for summer parties.

We’ve put together a checklist to get your backyard ready for the season festivities:

  • Give your lawn some much-needed love after a cold winter by mowing the grass, pruning the trees and pulling out any stray weeds. A fresh layer of fertilizer will also help keep your lawn-looking lush and green all summer long. 
  • When it comes to plants, give them a good trim, cut off any dead leaves and add nutrient rich mulch. 
  • Cleaning the BBQ is often a dreaded task, which is best done after cooking. A good stainless steel brush and hot soapy water is all that’s needed to clean the hotplate for your next BBQ.
  • It’s off to the pool shop with a water sample for chemical analysis. This is also the perfect time to check the safety of your pool fencing. 
  • A pool fencing safety check is essential, especially with kids around. To make sure your pool area is safe and meets regulations, regularly check your pool fencing and access points such as soft closing gates. Pay close attention to the glass panels and fixings for any damage. 
  • Take note of cracked or chipped panels, especially along the edges. Look for any movement in the frameless glass fencing panels to ensure your spigots and fixings are up to scratch.
  • Maintaining your glass pool fencing is easy. Wipe it down with a warm soapy water solution and for best results, use a squeegee for a streak free finish. 

Zero Edge offer frameless glass fence repairs on all glass pool fencing, irrespective of who installed it. 

Everybody loves a great Christmas party with fun in the sun, a few pool toys and cold drink. However, it’s always important to make sure your pool is safe and secure for your friends and family.
