The One Cleaning Solution to NEVER Use On Your Outdoor Fountains

The One Cleaning Solution to NEVER Use On Your Outdoor Fountains Proper care and regular upkeep are important to the longevity of water fountains. It is easy for foreign items to find their way into outside fountains, so keeping it clean is essential. Also, algae tends to build up any place natural light meets water. To prevent this, there are some common ingredients that can be added into the water, such as vinegar, sea salt, or hydrogen peroxide. Some people opt for adding bleach into the water, but the problem is that it harms wildlife - so it should be avoided.

A complete cleaning every 3-4 months is best for garden fountains. The initial step is to empty out all of the water. Once it is empty, wash inside the reservoir with a mild cleanser. If there are any small grooves, work with a toothbrush to get each and every spot.One Cleaning Solution NEVER Use Outdoor Fountains 31456252.jpg Do not leave any soap deposits inside or on the fountain.

It is highly recommended taking the pump apart to better clean the inside and eliminate any plankton or calcium. Soaking it in vinegar for a bit will make it easier to clean. Mineral or rain water, versus tap water, is ideal in order to prevent any build-up of chemicals inside the pump.

And finally, make sure the water level is continuously full in order to keep your fountain working optimally. If the water level drops below the pump’s intake level, it can damage the pump and cause it to burn out - something you don't want to happen!
