Etobicoke Water Feature Maintenance

There are plenty of reasons to install an attractive water feature. It might be the boost in curb appeal, the comfort that comes from the sound of running water, or just adding something great to look at, but when these are cared for, water fountains are a great investment. From installation and onward, care and maintenance of these features is a complicated process. Calling a Puddle technician for your Etobicoke water feature maintenance means great results, extended lifespans and clean running water, no matter the time of year.

A garden fountain is meant to look rustic, but when it comes to algae growth, foul smells or murky water, poor condition can quickly become a serious issue. When dealing with an outdoor or indoor fountain, keeping water clean is difficult, even at the best of times. After years of experience in water feature care, our Puddle technicians have developed a multi-step approach to keeping systems running smoothly.

The Benefits of Proper Water Fountain Care

Just like a pool or hot tub, the elements play a huge role in the overall condition of your outdoor water fountain. Without proper care and inspections, debris, mineral deposits and white scale can all leave a mark on your fountain, leading to unnecessary wear, tear and strain on your system. When you want to clean your system, it is important not to focus on water condition, alone.

Unlike a sink or countertop, removing a bit of staining or discolouration from a fountain requires more than a soft cloth and a bit of vinegar. In order to maintain protective coatings and sealants, specialty tools and chemicals are required to keep features in good condition. Calling in professional water fountain cleaning can help to maintain the overall condition, including the inner mechanisms, outdoor fountain pumps, filters and treating anything that might inhibit water flow. Failing to clean the pump, or checking filters can lead to strained functionality.

In a cold-weather climate, water features freeze, just like a pool or hot tub might. In the same way that it is important to lower the water level of your swim space, it is important to ensure that there is no water left inside your system when the temperatures drop below freezing. In a complicated system, it is easy to overlook one mechanism, but one missed step is all it takes to lead to serious trouble.

As much as you might try to clean your fountain on a regular basis there will come a time where replacing the water is necessary. When drained, cleaning larger fountains often means having to clean multiple tiers, all at different heights. It is important to clean each of these areas to remove any debris or algae buildup. It is also good practice to remove detachable components, like the water pump, for cleaning and storage. When you want to remove the pump from your water system, there is always the possibility of damage, so these practices are best left to the professionals.

Puddle Pool Services: Keeping Your Fountain Running

When temperatures begin to drop, it is easy enough to just cover your fountain and forget about it for a while. This is all well and good until it comes time to take the cover off and you are left with algae, white mold or a damaged system. Regular maintenance from a Puddle Pool technician will have your outdoor model, stand-alone structure or wall fountain running so clean you’d think it was distilled water.
