A Chronicle of Landscape Fountains

Pope Nicholas V, himself a well educated man, governed the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of old classical Greek documents into Latin. It was important for him to embellish the city of Rome to make it worthy of being called the capital of the Christian world. At the behest of the Pope, the Aqua Vergine, a ruined aqueduct which had transported clean drinking water into Rome from eight miles away, was reconditioned starting in 1453.Chronicle Landscape Fountains 75800617194.jpg The ancient Roman custom of building an awe-inspiring commemorative fountain at the location where an aqueduct arrived, also known as a mostra, was resurrected by Nicholas V. The present-day location of the Trevi Fountain was previously occupied by a wall fountain commissioned by the Pope and constructed by the architect Leon Battista Alberti. The water which eventually provided the Trevi Fountain as well as the acclaimed baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona came from the modified aqueduct which he had renovated.Keep Garden Fountain Clean 75800617194.jpg

Keep Your Garden Fountain Clean

Water fountains will keep working a very long time with regular cleaning and maintenance. A common issue with fountains is that they tend to collect dirt and debris, so it is vital that you keep it free from this. Additionally, anywhere light from the sun mixes with still water, algae can form. Either sea salt, hydrogen peroxide, or vinegar can be dissolved into the water to eliminate this problem. Bleach can also be put into the water, however this is not the ideal option because it can harm birds or other animals.

Experts recommend that the typical garden fountain undergoes a thorough scouring every three-four months. The initial task is to empty out all of the water. Next use gentle and a soft sponge to clean the interior of the reservoir. A useful tip is to use a toothbrush if there are small hard-to-reach spots. Any soap residue remaining on your fountain can damage it, so be sure it is all rinsed off.

It is highly recommended taking the pump apart to better clean the inside and get rid of any plankton or calcium. Soaking it in vinegar for a bit will make it easier to clean. If you want to eliminate build-up in your fountain, use rain water or mineral water rather than tap water, as these don’t contain any components that will stick to the inside of the pump.

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