Keep Your Fountain Tidy

To ensure that water fountains last a while, it is vital to perform regular maintenance. It is important to clean it out and remove any debris or foreign elements that might have gotten into or onto it. Additionally, anywhere light from the sun comes in contact with still water, algae can form. Either sea salt, hydrogen peroxide, or vinegar can be mixed into the water to prevent this problem. Bleach can also be mixed into the water, however this is not an ideal option as it can hurt birds or other animals.

Experts recommend that the typical garden fountain undergoes a thorough cleaning every three-four months. To start with you must empty the water. Then use a soft cloth and gentle cleanser to scrub the inside. If there are any small grooves, use a toothbrush to get each and every spot. Make sure all the soap is properly washed 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 while will make it easier to scrub. Mineral or rain water, versus tap water, is ideal in order to avoid any build-up of chemicals inside the pump.

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

Contemporary Garden Decor: Outdoor Fountains and their Beginnings

Contemporary Garden Decor: Outdoor Fountains Beginnings 75800617194.jpg The amazing or decorative effect of a fountain is just one of the purposes it fulfills, in addition to delivering drinking water and adding a decorative touch to your property.

Pure practicality was the original purpose of fountains. Water fountains were linked to a spring or aqueduct to supply potable water as well as bathing water for cities, townships and villages. Up to the late nineteenth century, water fountains had to be near an aqueduct or reservoir and more elevated than the fountain so that gravity could make the water flow down or shoot high into the air. Fountains were not only used as a water source for drinking water, but also to adorn homes and celebrate the designer who created it. Roman fountains usually depicted imagery of animals or heroes made of metal or stone masks. To depict the gardens of paradise, Muslim and Moorish garden planners of the Middle Ages added fountains to their designs. Fountains enjoyed a significant role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exert his power over nature. The Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries were extolled with baroque style fountains constructed to mark the place of entry of Roman aqueducts.

Indoor plumbing became the main source of water by the end of the 19th century thereby restricting urban fountains to mere decorative elements. Fountains using mechanical pumps instead of gravity helped fountains to provide recycled water into living spaces as well as create special water effects.

Contemporary fountains are used to adorn community spaces, honor individuals or events, and enhance recreational and entertainment events.
