Keeping Your Large Outdoor Fountain Tidy

Keeping Your Large Outdoor Fountain Tidy It is essential to carefully maintain water fountains for them to function optimally. It is easy for foreign items to find their way into outdoor fountains, so keeping it clean is important. Another factor is that water that is exposed to sunlight is vulnerable to growing algae. To prevent this, there are some common ingredients that can be added into the water, such as vinegar, sea salt, or hydrogen peroxide. Another option is to mix bleach into the water, but this action can hurt wild animals and so should really be avoided.

No more than 3-4 months should go by without an extensive cleaning of a fountain. Prior to cleaning, all the water must be taken out. When you have done this, wash inside the water reservoir with a mild detergent. A helpful tip is to use a toothbrush if there are small hard-to-reach spots. Do not leave any soap residue inside of or on the fountain.

Various organisms and calcium deposits may get inside the pump, so it is advised to take it apart and clean it thoroughly. You might want to let it soak in vinegar for a few hours to make it much less difficult to clean. Mineral or rain water, versus tap water, is ideal in order to avoid any build-up of chemicals inside the pump.

Finally, be sure to have a quick look at your fountain every day and add water if you notice that the level is low. Permitting the water level to get too low can cause damage to the pump - and you certainly don't want that!
