Landscape designers can take exterior areas from dry and brown, to a lush oasis but when they pack up and leave, property owners are left to maintain these outdoor areas. Make the most out of your landscaping services, or interior fountain spaces with a bit of help from the Puddle Pool crew. Our team of highly trained experts are able to provide Dundas water feature maintenance indoors and out, for homes, commercial spaces, sports centres and even hotels.
Water feature care does not come in a single package, but needs to be catered to the unique needs of your space. From a free-standing garden fountain, a more involved wall fountain or a massive outdoor water feature, all of these needs care, cleaning and maintenance. Leaning on an amateur approach can result in unexpected damage, but calling a pro helps to protect and make the most out of these areas.
Water Fountain Care: Preventing Foul Smells, Discolouration and Scale
Unlike the distilled water that you can expect from bottles, the water flowing through your fountain is under a lot of stress from outside forces. An outdoor water fountain is constantly at the mercy of the weather and surrounding plant life, while indoor spaces are always having to contend with unexpected contaminants.
If water becomes imbalanced in indoor fountains, you can expect to see a slow grade discolouration. Water might begin as crystal clear and as chemicals begin to dwindle, it will turn into a teal colour and eventually into a murky greenish. If left untreated, algae will begin to form and spread. Invasive growth and bacteria can lead to foul smells and white scale buildup.
Outdoor fountains are even more at risk for harmful bacteria and algae growth, but there is also the element of potential animal interference. Sitting water can be a huge draw for insect life, birds, frogs and snakes. Throughout gardens, water features are great but they have to be managed properly to stop them from spiralling out of control.
In addition to caring for water, it is important to consider what keeps your system running, namely your water pump and filtration system. When you clean your fountain, it is important to inspect its circulation system to prevent any harmful buildup from occurring. From managing the water level to digging deep into systems, our technicians can handle it all.
Puddle Pool Services: Only the Best in Care and Maintenance
When you want to keep your fountain running smoothly, it is best to call a professional for your water fountain cleaning.

Professional care from fully insured technicians can also work in conjunction with warranties and insurance companies to protect all aspects of your feature. When treating the mechanical aspects of your features, it may require speciality tools or a more technical approach. Outdoor fountain pumps are often located in off-site places and can be housed in wooden boxes, sheds or even underground. The same can be said with indoor spaces which might have their motors and pumps behind panels.
