Toronto Water Feature Maintenance

Toronto is known for its prime attractions and great properties, and nothing combines these two elements like a water feature. An outdoor water fountain can be a massive draw while an indoor one can help to create a comfortable environment for guests, customers and tenants. A fountain is great when it is well maintained but it does not take much for water to go from crystal clear to murky and foul smelling. Professional Toronto water feature maintenance can help to keep your system running, with a multi-step approach from highly experienced technicians.

In the same way that a pool or hot tub is susceptible to algae growth, so is your fountain. Installing an indoor structure or garden fountain is an investment in your curb appeal and in the enjoyment of your home or workspace. Anyone can approach a fountain and wipe up growth with a soft cloth or spray a bit of white vinegar, but this amateur method is not enough to get results. Professional care and maintenance can help to treat and even prevent white scale and mineral deposits, as well as keeping water clean and maintaining balance.

Water Fountain Cleaning: A Multi-Step Approach

Keeping your fountain running smoothly requires more than just keeping an eye on your water condition. Water features are not meant to be swam in, but that does not mean that cross contamination isn’t possible. All it takes is one person to put a hand in the water to result in serious digestive issues or skin, eye and ear irritations. Even though you aren’t expecting swimmers, proper water care is an important aspect of health and safety around your property.

One of the main aspects of proper fountain care involves maintaining mechanisms and more technical components. Failing to clean the pump, for example, can cause added and unnecessary strain to your system. If filters are clogged, they force the other aspects of your circulation system to work harder. This is true no matter the time of year, but cold weather during winter months presents different issues to your fountains, but proper water feature care and seasonal treatments can help.

Everyone knows that it is a good idea to drop the water level of a pool during freezing temperatures, so what makes your outdoor fountain any different? Calling an expert before the first freezing days of fall can help to prolong the lifespan of your fountain by protecting jets, mechanisms and other components. In cases of extreme temperatures (which Toronto is known for), it might even be necessary to remove the pump and any removable items to prevent cracking and breakage.

Whether you have years of experience dealing with water features or fountains, or are new to the world of care and maintenance, it is always time consuming and always in demand. With so many moving parts associated with your system, it is always better to lean on an expert, particularly when it comes to treating areas of technical skill, such as your fountain pump.

No matter if you are looking to clean and maintain an indoor wall fountain or an outdoor model, there are always aspects of your water system that are out of sight, and usually out of mind. Outdoor fountain pumps are often stored nearby, but can also be found below ground in buried storage boxes. Just tracking these down can be tricky, but not for our Puddle Pros!
