Vernon Water Feature Maintenance

A water feature is a great way to add curb appeal and value to a property but they can be difficult to maintain. Without training and technical knowledge, a lot can go wrong with DIY fountain care. Harsh chemicals and heavy handed cleaning techniques scrape or blast away protective coatings while amateur water balancing leaves water green and smelling awful. Keep water clean and systems running smoothly by calling Puddle for your Vernon water feature maintenance. 

No matter what type of water fountain you are dealing with, regular cleaning is key to keeping water in clear and internal systems in good condition. Outdoor water fountains are up against the elements in the same way that a swimming pool or hot tub is but they often don’t get the same amount of attention. Contaminated water is a serious health risk while neglecting structures can lead to damage and the need for expensive repairs and/or replacements. 

Water Fountain Care: Creating a Treatment Plan That Works 

In order to keep fountains running smoothly, it is important to create a customized treatment plan that caters to the unique needs of your water systems, as well as surrounding areas. There is a big difference between caring for an outdoor fountain and indoor model, particularly in the type of issues and contaminants that you are dealing with. For example, If you are dealing with a garden fountain, removing debris is key to avoiding algae growth and natural contaminants but this is easier said than done. An indoor fountain is more likely to form white scale and mineral deposits. Instead of trying to clean the fountain with a one-size-fits-all approach, Puddle technicians create unique treatment plans designed just for you. 

Routine Water Fountain Cleaning: Smaller fountains might be easy to access while larger ones often feature multiple tiers and are more difficult to reach. In a scenario where there is algae forming, surfaces are slippery and standing on these can lead to slips and falls. Balancing on fountain edges to reach higher areas can quickly lead to personal injury. Trying to tackle algae, mold or discolouration with mild soap is not enough to get results while a pressure washer can blast away aged or weakened materials, leading to cracks. Luckily, local Puddle technicians have the necessary tools and techniques to clean fountain surfaces, remove contaminants and reach even the trickiest areas with top safety practices. 

Deep Cleans: Even if you clean your fountain regularly it is a good idea to organize deep cleans throughout the course of the year. Depending on the surrounding area, these can be done quarterly or bi-annually (twice per year). This process often involves having to drain the water from fountains and cleaning structures with speciality tools. It is also a good idea to remove the pump to flush lines and clean around the area. If a fountain pump stops working, water will sit stagnant and is prone to contamination so having an expert inspect these areas for functionality is always a good idea. Once this is done water levels are restored and balanced. 

Water Feature Care: Excellent Results For Homes & Businesses 

Routine cleanings make sure that fountains are working properly, as well as looking their best. Something as simple as a landscaping service or nearby construction project can dislodge dirt, leaves and other debris from surrounding areas, letting them make their way into your fountain. Calling Puddle is a great way to clean a fountain before presenting a finished project to customers and reducing the risk of damage to any water system. 

Each member of the Puddle team is highly trained and experienced, so we understand what your fountains are up against. From changes in the season, bad weather and even high heats, the elements play a huge role in the condition of your water feature but local pros understand how to combat all of these. Fully insured teams provide peace of mind and excellent results, so there is never a bad time to call a Puddle Pro for efficient and affordable fountain cleanings.
