Obviously, changing the pool and Patio mesh is a two-person job. It's not no way for one person to complete it independently, but it's definitely much faster to have one more people do it. Here are some tips for changing the pool and Patio mesh.
◈ First , remove the old or bad mesh. Use pliers or a utility knife to cut along the edge of the spline and drag it out of the frame. If multiple splines hold the old mesh in place, repeat the process until all splines are removed, making it easy to remove the old mesh from the frame line.
◈ Perhaps your patio or pool like birdcage has multiple faces that need new mesh screen. Use tape measure to measure the opening size of each face, measure the length of the opening along the outer edge of the spline channel, and then measure the width of the opening. Once you have the dimensions, add 2-3 inches (5.1-7.6 centimeters) per side as a margin.
◈ Place the screen on a flat surface and cut off the measured size with an utility knife. For the safety , you can glue down the 1-2 edges of the mesh so that it does not pile up and leave rough edges during cutting. (Professional tip: You can use a yardstick or a wooden strip as a ruler to ensure accurate cutting)
◈ Roll the mesh into the place over the opening, leaving at least 1-2 inches (2.5-5.1 cm) of margin on the edge. (Professional tip: Having a second person to help you can make this part more easier!)
◈ Take the spline and press it with a spline roller to squeeze the mesh into the groove. Be sure to tighten the mesh to ensure a secure application.
◈ Ensure that the splines always enter the spline groove along the opening
If you are sure that your mesh is tight and securely safety in the correct position with splines, use your utility knife to cut. Then, remove the masking tape and cut off the excess masking mesh from the edges.
◈ Repeat the above until you have completed all the faces of the pool or terrace.
