The arrival of autumn or commonly known as fall is amongst us. Many of you think it’s the worst time to do a DIY fountain cleaning but it actually is one of the best times. The serenity of the season can’t be any better without a dazzling new-looking fountain.
Here are ways to care for and maintain your water fountain:
Treat your water fountain with a few drops of bleach or any anti-algae water treatment to prevent unwanted smells. Do this no more than once a week. The proportion should be one drop per gallon of water. You may also try a water clarifier if bleach is not an option for you.
For outdoor fountains, it’s best to clean it regularly by removing all water from the fountain and wipe it clean with a soft cloth.
If you have noticed some noise in your fountain, this means it either needs to be cleaned or the water level is slow. Water fountains need to be replenished so the water doesn't evaporate. A neat trick is to do is using a pantyhose to filter your pump.
