Guelph Water Feature Maintenance

A water feature is a great way to showcase a bit of natural beauty around a home or storefront — not to mention the added value! As great as a fountain is, they have to be kept clean. Dirty fountain water looks bad, smells worse and can eventually cause damage to your water system as a whole. When you want to boost your curb appeal and keep fountains running smoothly, just call Puddle for all of your Guelph water feature maintenance needs. 

Fountains are up against the elements in the same way that a pool or hot tub is but they don’t get the same care or attention. Whether you are dealing with a garden fountain outside or an indoor model, it’ll take more than a bit of mild soap and a roll of paper towel or soft cloth to get rid of algae growth or residue. Instead of learning to live with cloudy water or algae blooms call a Puddle technician to have your fountain looking better than ever. 

Water Feature Care: What to Watch Out For 

If you are looking to clean the fountain around your home or are taking over an existing commercial space, water fountain cleaning is a complicated process. Keeping a water feature in great shape means keeping water clean, removing debris and keeping an eye out for mineral deposits, along with cleaning the pump and internal water systems. If this sounds like a lot, that’s because it is! In order to keep up with the demand of water fountains it is better to have an expert create a routine pool program that works for your unique space. 

Maintaining Water Condition: In the same way that a pool or hot tub is vulnerable to algae growth or discolouration. Fountains aren’t meant for swimming in but this doesn’t mean that it is okay for water to be contaminated. All it takes is one person putting their hand into dirty water to end up with serious consequences like skin irritations or eye and ear infections. In order to keep water clean it is important to do regular chemical applications to avoid cloudiness or discolouration. 

Removing Debris: Unwanted items will build up around both indoor and outdoor fountains. In the case of larger fountains you are likely dealing with multiple tiers, some of which are out of reach. This means having to balance on a ladder or navigate slippery surfaces, which comes along with the risk of slips, falls and injury. Cleaning a fountain regularly should involve removing dirt, debris and unwanted items from even the toughest areas. 

Inspect Water Systems: Running water is clean water. If your fountain pump is broken or filters are clogged it won’t take long for your water to get dirty. If this is the case you might have to remove the pump in order to clean the surrounding areas. In some fountains pumps or components might be hidden behind panels or found nearby in above ground boxes or buried ones. Without extensive technical knowledge it is hard to know what you should be looking for but our Puddle Pros are here to help. 

Deep Cleans / Seasonal Care: If your fountain hasn’t been cleaned in a while or is looking worse for the wear, a standard cleaning and chemical treatment won’t be enough to restore condition. A deep cleaning involved draining the water and cleaning the structure of your fountain. This can mean an acid wash for concrete structures or heavy scrubbing for vinyl liners. Once thoroughly cleaned, water levels are restored and your fountain should not only be working properly, it should look and run better than ever.
