MaintenanceTips To A Proper Water Fountain Maintenance

February 22, 2022by Bill Seeds

A water fountain is an excellent addition to any home or office. Not only does it provide a refreshing environment in the summer months, but it also provides an attractive decorative feature and source of calmness. 

The downside to this great convenience is that they require a fair amount of maintenance to keep them running smoothly and looking good for years. In this post, we’ll go over the different water fountain maintenance tips. 

4 Steps For Good Water Fountain Maintenance

Clean The Pump Regularly 

Cleaning the pump is essential to making sure your water fountain runs smoothly and stays clean. Spend some time cleaning out the inside of the pump with a toothbrush to remove any sediment that has built up over time. When it’s clean, rinse it out with water and let it dry. Be sure to do this at least every three months.

Keep The Pump Immersed In Water

The pump needs to stay fully submerged in fresh water in order for it to function correctly and slowly circulate the water.

Remove The Algae

If you notice algae growing on your fountain, take the time to remove it. Algae grows when water is not circulating in a pump, which can cause problems with how it functions. It also looks ugly! Scrub it away with a toothbrush or soak it in vinegar overnight when you notice algae growing.
