Keep Your Outdoor Wall Fountain Tidy

To ensure that water fountains last a while, it is vital to perform regular maintenance.Keep Outdoor Wall Fountain Tidy 79671549573.jpg A common problem with fountains is that they tend to gather dirt and debris, so it is essential that you keep it free from this. Additionally, anywhere light from the sun combines with still water, algae can form. To avoid this, take vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, or sea salt and add right into the water. There are those who prefer to use bleach, but that is harmful to any animals that might drink or bathe in the water - so should therefore be avoided.

No more than 3-4 months should really go by without an extensive maintaining of a fountain. Before you start cleaning, all the water must be eliminated. Then use a soft rag and gentle cleanser to scrub the inside. If there are any small grooves, use a toothbrush to get every spot. Be sure to completely rinse the inside of the fountain to make sure all the soap is gone.

It is highly advised taking the pump apart to better clean the inside and remove any plankton or calcium. Letting it soak in vinegar for several hours first will make it much easier to clean. Neither rain water nor mineral water contain ingredients that will collect inside the pump, so use either over tap water if possible.

One final recommendation for keeping your fountain in top working condition is to check the water level every day and make sure it is full. If the water level slides below the pump’s intake level, it can damage the pump and cause it to burn out - something you don't want to happen!

From Where Did Water Fountains Emerge?

Pope Nicholas V, himself a learned man, governed the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of old classic Greek documents into Latin. It was important for him to beautify the city of Rome to make it worthy of being known as the capital of the Christian world.Water Fountains Emerge? 92712947252918.jpg At the behest of the Pope, the Aqua Vergine, a ruined aqueduct which had transported clean drinking water into Rome from eight miles away, was restored starting in 1453. A mostra, a monumental commemorative fountain constructed by ancient Romans to mark the point of arrival of an aqueduct, was a tradition which was restored by Nicholas V. The architect Leon Battista Alberti was directed by the Pope to construct a wall fountain where we now find the Trevi Fountain. The aqueduct he had reconditioned included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the renowned baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
