Colwood Water Feature Maintenance

Every home has its own unique character. From beautiful architecture, a great backyard or custom additions, it all adds an element of personality and nothing completes these pictures like a water feature. A garden fountain adds curb appeal to homes and commercial properties while indoor models can make offices more inviting. As great as a fountain might be, it can be difficult to keep these systems in good shape. Expert Colwood water feature maintenance provides in-depth care for structures, manages water condition and keeps systems running smoothly.

It is easy to overlook the needs of water fountains over the course of a busy day but these features are up against the elements in the same way that a pool or hot tub is. Even though fountains are not designed for swimming, that does not mean that you don’t have to keep water clean. Without regular cleaning and maintenance fountains will experience algae growth, cloudy or discoloured water, a buildup of debris and even foul smells. Instead of waiting for the worst-case scenario, make water fountain care a part of your homeware routine.

Water Fountain Cleaning: A Multi-Step Approach

Just like any household feature, there is a right way and a wrong way to clean your fountain. Depending on the type of water on your property and the location of your fountain, your water systems are facing off against different risks. Hard water, for example, makes fountains more susceptible to white scale and mineral deposits while outdoor water features are prone to algae. When you want the best results for your fountain, it is important to create a customized treatment plan that caters to the unique needs of your feature.

Water Treatments: No one wants to sit down next to a fountain only to see dirty water running through it or notice big splotches of green floating along surfaces. Cleaning a fountain regularly means applying chemicals that keep water crystal clear and prevent algae.

Remove Debris: In an outdoor environment, there is no fighting off organic debris. All it takes is a strong wind to dislodge tons of material from surrounding plant life. A few leaves here and there might not seem like a big deal but over time, even lighter items will pile up, creating issues. Even small items can create clogs and blockages over time. Blockages in lines prevent water from passing through lines, forcing systems to work harder, using more energy and driving up utility bills.

Testing & Visual Inspections: Fountains are made up of some aspects that you can see and others that you can’t. Having an expert test your water systems and check your filters, water pump and other necessary components reassures owners that everything is running smoothly. A trained eye can pinpoint problem areas while they are small and can be repaired.

Seasonal Treatments & Deep Cleans: Many property owners are quick to close their pools for the cold season but fountains rarely get the same treatment. By dropping the water level, you can protect internal components from damage caused by the cold. If water is allowed to sit inside return lines or in vulnerable areas like around pumps, it will eventually freeze. Frozen water makes plastic brittle and can cause pipes to burst. Eventually there will come a time when it is necessary to replace the water in your water feature. Taking a DIY approach to drain the water from your system can result in drowned lawns, leaks, rot, mold, water damage and more.
