A pool cage is an important part of your swimming pool. Not only does it keep out debris and bugs, but it can also add to the beauty of your home. Over time, your pool cage may start to look a little dirty and you need to get rid of any dust, or cobwebs that may be clinging to it. Instead of hiring a professional to pressure wash it for you, you can do it yourself by following these simple steps.
Step 0: Using a Power Washer to Clean your Pool Cage
If you have ever tried to clean a pool enclosure by hand, you know how difficult it can be. You will have to climb up on the structure, which could be very dangerous if there are sharp edges or loose parts. With a pressure washer, all you have to do is attach the hose to the nozzle and turn it on. The water comes out at high pressure, so you don't have to worry about getting hurt while cleaning the pool enclosure.
Step 1: Determine How Much You Want to Spend
To pressure wash your pool cage yourself, you will need to determine how much you want to spend. You can purchase a pressure washer for around $100 or you can rent one for around $50 per day. You will also need to purchase a cleaning attachment, which typically costs around $15-30.
Step 2: Gather the Supplies You Will Need
To pressure wash your pool cage, you will need a pressure washer, a ladder, a hose, and a bucket. The pressure washer should have a nozzle that can be adjusted to produce a spray of water. The ladder should be tall enough to reach the top of the pool cage. The hose should be long enough to reach the pressure washer and the bucket.
Step 3: Prep the Area for Pressure Washing
The next step is to prep the area for pressure washing. This means removing any objects from the area that could be damaged by the high-pressure water. This includes plants, furniture, and anything else in the area. Once everything is cleared out, you're ready to start pressure washing. Make sure that the power to the pool pump is turned off.
Step 4: Now Pressure Wash your Pool Cage yourself
It's important to use a pressure washer that has a low PSI setting, so you don't damage the cage. Start by spraying the entire cage with water to wet it down. Then, begin pressure washing in one corner and work your way around the cage, washing the surfaces with a back and forth motion. Be sure to rinse off the cage thoroughly after you're done.
Step 5: Let it Dry
After cleaning yourself, it is important to let your pool cage dry. This will prevent any build-up of dirt or algae. Make sure to leave the door and windows of your house open to allow for proper air circulation within the pool cage area.
Pressure washing your pool cage is a simple process that can be done in a few hours. By following these steps, you can have your pool cage looking like new in no time!
