Ottawa Water Feature Maintenance

Nothing adds personality to a property like a water feature does. Whether indoors or outside, a clean water fountain can boost curb appeal or even act as a meeting place. When fountains are clean and running smoothly, they add a lot but when they are dirty they become very unappealing, very quickly. When you want to keep your water systems in great shape, call a Puddle Pool Pro for expert Ottawa water feature maintenance.

Simple cleaning solutions might work on smooth surfaces indoors, but complex structures and systems require a more specialized touch. Fountains aren’t meant to be swam in, but that doesn’t always stop contact. Keeping a water feature clean is a matter of health and safety and can help to avoid repair bills, while prolonging the lifespan of your fountain mechanics.

Water Feature Care: What Keeps Your System In Great Shape

Around residential properties, the most common type of water feature is usually a garden fountain or simple wall fountain. In commercial spaces, larger fountains, combined with expert landscape design can add appeal to any outdoor space. In order to keep an indoor or outdoor water fountain in great shape, there should be regularly cleaning programs in place.

If water is not cleaned regularly it does not take long for algae growth, mineral deposits, white scale or mold to form. You might be able to remove debris from accessible areas using a simple skimmer, but when it comes to invasive growth and heavy bacteria growth, speciality tools are required. Unlike tap water that flows clean at all times, the water in your fountain is subject to contamination.

Proper water fountain care requires application of chemicals to beat back bacteria while removing debris helps to protect the fountain pump and filtration system. Particularly when outside, outdoor fountain pumps are subject to buildup from organics like leaves, sticks, seed pods, needles, pinecones and more. As these collect, they reduce water flow, forcing mechanics to work even harder. This added strain can take years off of the lifespan of internal components like pumps and filters.

As temperatures begin to cool, pool owners are quick to close their pool down, but fountains are often left out in the cold. In the same way that it does in a pool system, freezing water can damage internal mechanisms and can make plastic components brittle in a fountain, as well. Reducing the water level in your water feature prevents water from getting into systems, reducing the risk of damage.

We own a commercial property with an indoor pool and hot tub. We switched over pool maintenance companies about 6 months ago, from another company in Ottawa to Puddle Pools. We have been incredibly impressed with the service that we receive from both Zach and Richard. They have been incredibly responsive to all of our questions and are quick to take action whenever we encounter an issue, whether it is big or small. They also perform weekly routine maintenance on our pool and spa and they are always on time, courteous, professional and dependable. We are so happy to have found Puddle Pools and highly recommend them!

Called Puddle Pools Ottawa and consulted about changing out old for a new pool liner. Richard and Zachary answered all of my questions and earned my business. We couldn’t be happier so far! They did great and the pool looks amazing!

My experience with Puddle Pools was nothing short of spectacular, a true highlight in my homeownership journey. Initially, I was on the fence about who to trust with my pool liner replacement, especially given the tricky timing towards the end of fall last year. Yet, Puddle Pools stood out not just for their competitive quotes but for their unwavering commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Zach, my point of contact, was a pivotal figure throughout this process. He epitomized professionalism and warmth, making what could have been a stressful endeavor feel like a walk in the park. His prompt responses and understanding nature underscored the company's customer-first ethos, making me feel valued and heard at every turn. The reasonability of their quotes was the first sign that I had struck gold with Puddle Pools. In a sector where costs can spiral, their straightforward and fair pricing was a welcome change. It’s refreshing to find a company that aligns its interests so closely with those of its clients, ensuring you get the best bang for your buck. The quality of their work speaks volumes, proving that they don't just meet expectations—they soar above them. Given the stellar outcome of the liner replacement, I didn't hesitate to entrust them with the installation of a pool safety cover. Once more, they exceeded my expectations, reinforcing my decision to look nowhere else for pool-related services. In summary, if you're in Ottawa and pondering over pool services, let me save you some time: Puddle Pools is the answer. Their blend of exemplary service, fair pricing, and superior work quality places them a cut above the rest. I'm beyond satisfied with their service and eagerly anticipate continuing this relationship for all my pool needs. A heartfelt thank you to Zach and the Puddle Pools team for a remarkable job well done!

Richard was the representative that came to close our family pool. Richard was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and had tremendous patience for every question I had. He responded with detailed responses and took the time to show me what he was explaining. Would strongly recommend this company for all your pool openings and closing! Have already asked to be placed on the list for the next fall closing.
