Villages and villages depended on functional water fountains to conduct water for preparing food, bathing, and cleaning from local sources like ponds, streams, or springs.

Striking and spectacular, large water fountains have been crafted as monuments in many cultures. Simple in style, the 1st water fountains didn't look much like present fountains.

Keeping Your Large Outdoor Fountain Clean

It is vital to carefully maintain water fountains for them to work properly. It is essential to clean it out and get rid of any debris or foreign objects that might have dropped into or onto it. On top of that, algae can be a concern, because sun hitting the water allows it to form easily. To stay clear of this, there are some simple ingredients that can be added into the water, such as vinegar, sea salt, or hydrogen peroxide. There are those who choose to use bleach, but that is hazardous to any animals that might drink or bathe in the water - so should therefore be avoided.

Experts suggest that the typical garden fountain undergoes a thorough cleaning every three-four months.Keeping Large Outdoor Fountain Clean 75800617194.jpg The first step is to empty out all the water. Next use mild soap and a soft sponge to clean the innner part of the reservoir. If there are any tiny grooves, work with a toothbrush to reach each and every spot. Do not leave any soap deposits in or on the fountain.

Calcium and fresh water organisms could get inside the pump, so you should disassemble it to get it truly clean. You might want to let it soak in vinegar for a few hours to make it quicker to clean. Neither rain water nor mineral water contain substances that will build up inside the pump, so use either over tap water if possible.

One final recommendation for keeping your fountain in top working shape is to check the water level every day and make sure it is full. If the water level drops below the pump’s intake level, it can damage the pump and cause it to burn out - something you do not want to happen!
