Garden Fountain Maintenance

We all love to make our garden unique and eye catching.

What could be better than a well-structured fountain amidst the greenery around the garden? It would simply look stylish and classy.

You can choose any one of the attractive models or you could create your own designed fountain. The newly installed fountains always look stunning and luxurious. However, as days pass by, one simply fails to maintain it.

Your fountain faces extreme effects of climate and harsh rains. Cleaning it regularly will help you to keep the fountain sparkling and clean.

A damaged or unmaintained fountain will always spoil the beauty of your garden. Hence, you must always have a well-constructed and solid fountain. To keep your fountain clean, you need to change the waters frequently.

The unchanged waters can give birth to algae that would make the fountain waters impure and stinking. You can spray some anti algae liquid to curb their growth and avoid this problem of dirtying the waters.

However, if you love the birds that visit your fountain daily to quench their thirst, you could proceed to call for treatment that is safe for these birds.

Keep a check on the water flow. A bit of a hole or damage to the fountain could create a leak of water. If the water keeps flowing through the garden continuously, it may damage the plants and other saplings. Make sure that the fountain is not leaning on the other plants, as it may damage them.

Keep the fountain free of debris and fallen leaves. These can block the water flow and choke the pump. To take precautions on a daily basis will hardly take any time and will also help to maintain properly the water flow.

Always clean the fountain pump by unplugging it. Doing this once in a fortnight will help you to keep the fountain fine-tuned. To dismantle and clean the fountain, you may need to read the manufacturer’s instructions. Make sure you follow them, so that you do not invite any problems later on.
