Your Large Garden Fountains: Maintenance & Routine Service

A very important first step is to consider the proportions of the outdoor wall fountain with regards to the space you have available for it. It is essential that the wall where you are going to place it is sturdy enough to support its load. Therefore for smaller areas or walls, a light feature is going to be more suitable.Large Garden Fountains: Maintenance & Routine Service 207025070414862650.jpg In order for the fountain to have electrical power, a nearby electrical plug is needed.

Use underwater lights, which come in many different shapes and colors, to display your new feature at night.

Keep Your Garden Wall Fountain Tidy

In order to ensure that water fountains last a long time, it is vital to practice regular maintenance. It is easy for foreign items to find their way into outside fountains, so keeping it clean is vital. On top of that, algae can be a problem, as sun hitting the water allows it to form easily. To prevent this, there are some simple ingredients that can be added into the water, such as vinegar, sea salt, or hydrogen peroxide. Another option is to stir bleach into the water, but this action can harm wild animals and so should really be avoided.

Experts suggest that the typical garden fountain undergoes a thorough scrubbing every 3-4 months. The first step is to get rid of all of the water. Once it is empty, wash inside the reservoir with a mild cleanser. A helpful tip is to use a toothbrush if there are small hard-to-reach spots. Any soap residue left on your fountain can damage it, so be sure it is all rinsed off.

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

Lastly, make sure your fountain is always full by checking on it every day - this will keep it in tip-top shape. If the water level falls below the pump’s intake level, it can hurt the pump and cause it to burn out - something you do not want to happen!
