The right water feature can add a lot to your property. From a calming ambience to a soothing sound, even a standard fountain can add a lot to any space – as long as they are kept clean, that is. Keeping your fountain running smoothly requires a multi-step cleaning routine, designed to treat water, as well as structures and the mechanisms at work behind the scenes. When you want the best results, call a Puddle Pro for your Waterdown water feature maintenance.
Instead of coming in with a soft cloth and basic testing kit, Puddle technicians inspect and treat even the most complicated aspects of your fountain. It is easy to miss small instances of white scale as they build up, but after years of experience, our Puddle Pool Pros can spot problem areas before they become an issue. For an indoor feature or an outdoor water fountain, our experts can help to keep things clean and running smoothly.
Water Feature Care: Fountains and More
When installing a basic garden fountain, it might be enough to fill it up and plug it in, but even these require care and maintenance. Cleaning a fountain regularly prevents murky and contaminated water and protects motors, all while improving visual appeal.
From indoor fountains to outdoor ponds, anywhere that there is water present, there are potential problems nearby. From organic debris and plant cast-off to manmade contaminants and animal interference, there is no end to what can have a negative impact on your system. Part of water fountain care is monitoring the overall water chemistry. If chemicals are imbalanced, it is possible for water to begin to smell badly and become discoloured.
Unlike the distilled water that you can expect to find in bottles, the water passing through your system is often not filtered. In the same way that untreated water can result in algae growth, without proper inspection, you can expect mineral deposits and unnecessary stress on circulation systems. Part of what makes water fountain maintenance so difficult is not just knowing how to treat mechanisms, but even finding them is a challenge!
When outdoor fountain pumps are considered, for example, these are often found slightly off to the side in a shed, a wooden box cover or even underground. A wall fountain, on the other hand, might have pumps and motors behind a panel or in other hard to reach areas. Before any treatments begin, it is important to unplug the pump to prevent any damage or potential for electrical issues.
