Professional Kanata water feature maintenance can help to keep your fountain running smoothly and water crystal clear all year long.

A pool, hot tub and water fountain have more in common than you might think. While you aren’t meant to swim in a fountain, these features still need to have clean water and depend on a functional circulation system. In order to keep both an indoor and outdoor fountain in great shape, it is important to inspect and treat features from the inside, out.

The Best Way to Clean a Water Fountain: Regular Cleaning & Seasonal Maintenance

Cleaning out a sink or bathtub indoors can be done with a soft cloth and basic cleanser but when you are dealing with stains, discolouration, algae buildup or foul smells, it takes specialty tools and techniques to get great results. Treating a wall fountain will requires a much different approach from treating a garden fountain. In order to meet the demands of your system, it is important to create customized treatment plans that cater to the unique needs of your system.

Water Balance: Without the right level of chemicals, it is easy for water to become imbalanced. In an outdoor environment, a lack of chemicals can lead to the growth and spread of algae. Algae can be present in both indoor and outdoor fountain models but when inside, you are more likely to experience white scale and mineral deposits. Keeping your water feature clean is a matter of visual appeal, but also of health and safety. All it takes is one individual to stick their hand in a contaminated system to lead to irritations, illness or serious digestive issues.

Inspect Internal Mechanisms: If your circulation system is not functioning properly, it cannot transport chemicals and sanitizers throughout the entirety of your fountain system. In order to make sure that everything is operational, it is important to inspect the water pump, filters, motors and more.

Monitoring Structures: A big part of water feature care is ensuring that structures are in great shape at all times. Sunken debris can stain liners while sudden shifts in temperature can make structures brittle.

Seasonal Water Fountain Care: Outdoor water fountains are always at the mercy of the elements. A changing of the season or a weather event can unleash a ton of organic debris from surrounding plant life. Winter weather also means frozen water, which expands up to 9%. This leads can lead to warping or burst pipes. In order to prevent damage, it is a good idea to drop the water level below openings.

Ditch Debris: Depending on the size of an outdoor fountain, you might be dealing with multiple tiers, each of which need to be thoroughly cleaned. Reaching these areas can be tricky and often involve managing slippery surfaces and heights. Leaving debris to sit can cause clogs in filtration systems, as well as damage to liners and tiles. Avoid injury and damage by allowing an expert to clean your fountain for you.
