The One Cleaning Solution to NEVER Use On Your Large Garden Fountains

It is important to carefully maintain water fountains for them to perform optimally. Leaves, twigs, and insects often find their way into fountains, so it is vital to keep yours free from such debris. On top of that, algae can be a concern, because sunshine hitting the water allows it to form quickly. To stay clear of this, there are some basic ingredients that can be mixed into the water, such as vinegar, sea salt, or hydrogen peroxide. Some people opt for adding bleach into the water, but the problem is that it harms wildlife - so it should be avoided.

An extensive cleaning every 3-4 months is best for garden fountains. Before you can start cleaning it you must drain out all of the water. Next use gentle and a soft sponge to clean inside the reservoir. A useful tip is to use a toothbrush if there are small hard-to-reach spots. Make sure all the soap is totally washed off.

Some organisms and calcium deposits can get inside the pump, so it is advised to take it apart and clean it thoroughly. You might want to let it soak in vinegar for a few hours to make it easier to scrub. Build-up can be a big hassle, so use mineral or rain water over tap water, when possible, to eliminate this dilemma.

Lastly, make sure your fountain is always full by looking at it every day - this will keep it in tip-top shape. Low water levels can ruin the pump - and you do not want that!
