Water Feature Care: What to Know
You might be familiar with caring for a fountain or might be completely new to the world of feature maintenance, but in either case, there is always something new to learn. Scooping a bit of debris off of water surfaces is simple enough but when you want real results, this is not enough to get there.
Keeping Water Clean: Everyone wants crystal clear water running through their systems, but this can be a tough nut to crack. Unlike the distilled water that you can find in a bottle, outdoor fountains are difficult to keep clean. It is easy for an outdoor water fountain to slip into disrepair, as it is up against the elements at all times. If water becomes imbalanced, it does not take long to move from clear to teal, and eventually an off-green, signalling bacteria growth.
Managing Mechanics: A proper filtration system is key to keeping debris in check, but it also helps to disperse chemicals and sanitizers throughout the system. The tricky part about treating these areas is that they are often hiding in hard to reach areas. When managing an outdoor fountain, pumps are often found in odd, covered areas, such as sheds or small boxes. When left out in the elements, mechanics can rust or run down, so regular inspections are key.
Regular water fountain cleaning can prevent build up and scale from forming inside systems. Also, depending on the elements, both indoors and outside, you can expect an impact to water levels. A drop in water level can impact mechanics, and leave marks and residue behind. Instead of taking a soft cloth to these areas and hoping for the best, trust the professionals.
