Your eyes, your ears and your health can be favorably impacted by including this type of indoor feature in your home.

Positive changes to both your mental and physical well-being take place when the negative ions are overpowered by the positive ions.

Keep Your Garden Fountain Tidy

Adequate care and regular maintenance are important to the longevity of water fountains. Leaves, twigs, and insects often find their way into fountains, so it is essential to keep yours free from such debris. Also, algae tends to build up anywhere natural light meets water. To avoid this, take vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, or sea salt and add right into the water. Another option is to stir bleach into the water, but this action can sicken wild animals and so should really be avoided.

No more than 3-4 months should really go by without an extensive maintaining of a fountain. The initial task is to empty out all the water. When you have done this, wash inside the water reservoir with a mild detergent. If there are any tiny grooves, use a toothbrush to reach every spot. Any soap residue left on your fountain can damage it, so be sure it is all rinsed off.

Make sure you get rid of any calcium or plankton by taking the pump apart and scrubbing the inside properly. To make it less difficult, soak it in vinegar for a while before cleaning. If you want to eliminate build-up in your fountain, use rain water or mineral water rather than tap water, as these don’t contain any elements that might stick to the inside of the pump.

Finally, be sure to have a quick look at your fountain every day and add water if you notice that the level is low. Low water levels can ruin the pump - and you do not want that!
