It has been said that water symbolizes life. Water has a natural rhythmic flow, just like life. The sound of flowing water from a beautiful water feature can bring us a sense of calm and peacefulness.
Let’s explore 3 ways to extend the life of your water feature.
#1: Check the Filter
A clogged filter can cause your fountain to become an embarrassing buildup of debris. Consistent light maintenance can reduce the number of times your water feature requires a thorough cleaning, but the filter still needs to be checked regularly.
#2: Preventative Treatments
There are products on the market specifically designed to protect your fountain from stains and algae growth. Most of these are biodegradable and safe if your pet takes a taste.
Don’t use bleach products to clean your fountain. These can corrode the outer layer of the fountain and can be harmful.
#3: Regular Refilling
You’ll want to get into a routine of adding water periodically, based on the rate of evaporation for your area. If the water level gets too low, it can cause an unattractive ring where the water level used to be.
More importantly, if the water is too low and the water pump brings in air, this will affect the life of your pump. And you want moving water to prevent bacteria growth.
