Oshawa Water Feature Maintenance

What could be better than sitting next to an outdoor fountain, listening to the flow of water and taking a second to recharge your batteries. For property owners and guests this can be daily practice but only if your fountain is clean and working properly. It doesn’t take much for fountains to build up debris or start to develop algae but our Puddle Pros can help! Professional Oshawa water feature maintenance can help to maintain not only improved visual appeal but help to improve overall condition and functionality, as well. 

Just like a pool or hot tub, your water features are prone to algae buildup, bacteria and residue, but it is also susceptible to white scale and mineral deposits. If this is the case it will take more than a bit of mild soap and scrubbing with a soft cloth to get rid of the issue. Even a bit of neglect can lead to murky water, foul smells, stains and algae growth. Cleaning your fountain regularly helps to prolong the lifespan of your system, reducing the need for costly repairs and premature replacements. When you want to protect your investment, maintain your curb appeal, cut down on repair costs and keep your water flowing smoothly.

Water Feature Care: What to Know 

Every water fountain has a mind of its own. While these features might share some characteristics, and components, they have different risks associated with the elements and unique contaminants. An indoor wall fountain, for example, might be up against bacteria left behind from thrown pennies, spilled drinks or even contamination from individuals. A garden fountain, on the other hand, might be facing off against a ton of debris, animal contamination and chemical dilution from the elements. 

With all these things in mind, keeping your water clean can feel like a huge undertaking, which weighs on an already busy schedule. Delaying regular services even a little, can mean that your system is left struggling. Buildup and debris wreaks havoc on your outdoor fountain pumps at any time but over long periods of disuse, these blockages can lead to strain on the fountain pump, which leads to unnecessary wear and tear. 

Keeping water clean is an important part of fountain care, but this is easier said than done. A proper chemical balancing system requires you to cater your approach based on temperatures, growth rates of surrounding plants and a wide variety of other factors. Fountains aren’t meant to be swam in, but that doesn’t always stop people — particularly children — from sticking their hands inside. All it takes is one touch of the eye or mouth with a contaminated hand to result in serious illness or irritations. 

When you begin to notice a bit of algae growth or staining, a soft cloth or basic cleaner is not enough to get rid of the issues that you are experiencing. It is also important to consider whether or not you will leave your fountain running throughout the winter months. As temperatures drop, your outdoor water fountain is at risk of freezing. Dropping the water level below jets and skimmers can help to reduce the risk of frozen pipes and potential damage. In addition to dropping levels, it is important to siphon the water out of your system to avoid potential damage. 

Puddle Pool Services: Only the Best in Water Fountain Care 

When you want to keep your water fountain in the best possible condition, you’ll have to do more than remove debris and throw in a few chemicals now and then. Cleaning the pump, lines and surrounding areas are key to keeping your fountain running smoothly. In addition to regular cleaning services, water features will need deep cleanings to eliminate algae and discolouration. Stains are not only visually unappealing, they can have a negative impact on the structural integrity of your fountain. Chemically treated water runs through plumbing lines, pulling out buildup and debris from unseen places. It is then time to drain the water, acid wash or scrub concrete structures so they can be refilled and chemically treated again. 

Clear running water can make a world of difference to the visual appeal of your fountain, but it does not come without a lot of hard work. Luckily, there are Puddle Pros in the Oshawa area that can treat fountains of any size and style, around residential, commercial and communal spaces.
