St. Thomas Water Feature Maintenance

Having a water fountain is a great way to incorporate a bit of nature into your home or commercial property but they don’t come without a lot of hard work. It is easy to enjoy all of the perks of having a water feature right outside your front door but keeping them clean and running smoothly isn’t one of them. Instead of struggling to keep your outdoor fountain clean and flowing, call Puddle for your St. Thomas water feature maintenance. 

When you are in the market for water feature care, it is important to understand exactly what you need and that can be tricky. Fountains are up against the elements and contaminants in the same way that a pool or hot tub is but they often don’t get the same level of attention. Because you are not swimming in a fountain, it is easy to overlook water condition and debris buildup. Instead of dealing with a worst-case scenario or unnecessary damage, call a Puddle technician to keep our fountain working properly and your water crystal clear. 

Water Fountain Care: What to Know 

There is a difference between outdoor fountain maintenance and caring for indoor models but they both rely on similar water systems to keep them moving. It is easy to get distracted with pool water condition alone but your fountain is made up of a series of complicated systems that all need attention. 

Keeping water clean means regular application of chemical treatments but it also means maintaining the internal systems that keep them running. If your fountain pump breaks down you might not notice it Immediately but it will have an instant impact on your water feature. If water isn’t circulating, neither are chemical treatments which opens the door to contamination. Contaminated water is a health and safety issue. Even if fountains are not meant to be swam in, all it takes is a kid reaching their hand into an indoor fountain to lead to eye infections, ear infections, skin irritations or digestive issues. 

Removing Debris: Any outdoor fountain is vulnerable to organic debris, as well as residue around water lines. Indoor fountains are more prone to white scale and mineral deposits. It is easy enough to skim unwanted items off of water surfaces at the ground level but reach higher areas means higher risks. If fountain surfaces are damp or are experiencing algae growth, stepping on these surfaces can lead to slips and falls. For larger outdoor fountains with multiple tiers it is common for the higher areas to be ignored. This means pockets of debris and bacteria buildup. Puddle technicians come equipped with all of the top safety tools of the trade to keep our crews on their feet while getting the best results. 

Eliminating Algae: If you are noticing algae forming around your fountain, it will take more than a bit of mild soap and a soft cloth to remove it completely. On the other hand, trying to tackle stains and growth with a pressure washer can cause structural damage. In order to remove algae without causing damage, Puddle technicians perform assessments of existing water fountains to determine the best course of action to take.

Deep Cleans: Even if you clean your fountain regularly, there will come a point where your system will need a deep clean. This involves specialized chemical treatments that flow through internal water systems, pulling out debris, then draining water levels. Once empty, structures can be cleaned using an acid wash technique to remove stains and discolourations. Water levels can then be restored and water balanced, leaving your fountain running better than ever.
