Keep Your Fountain Tidy

Keep Your Fountain Tidy Proper care and regular maintenance are important to the longevity of water fountains. It is easy for foreign items to find their way into open-air fountains, so keeping it clean is vital. Also, algae tends to build up anywhere natural light meets water. Blend hydrogen peroxide, sea salt, or vinegar into the water to avoid this particular dilemma.Keep Fountain Tidy 8654965739094952.jpg There are those who like to use bleach, but that is hazardous to any animals that might drink or bathe in the water - so should therefore be avoided.

A thorough cleaning every three-four months is recommended for garden fountains. To start with you must drain the water. As soon as it is empty, clean inside the reservoir with a gentle cleanser. A helpful tip is to use a toothbrush if there are tiny hard-to-reach spots. Any soap residue that remains on your fountain can damage it, so be sure it is all rinsed off.

Calcium and fresh water organisms can get inside the pump, so you should really disassemble it to get it truly clean. Soaking it in vinegar for a time will make it easier to scrub. Neither rain water nor mineral water contain ingredients that will accumulate inside the pump, so use either over tap water if possible.

And finally, make sure the water level is continuously full in order to keep your fountain working optimally. Allowing the water level to get too low can result in damage to the pump - and you certainly do not want that!
