Cleaning Your Outdoor Garden Fountain
A garden fountain can add ambient noise and tranquil beauty to your garden, to say nothing of garden fountain ability to attract colorful wildlife, such as your neighborhood’s songbirds. If you don’t regularly clean the garden fountain, however, you will start noticing some unpleasant consequences such as algae growth, murky water, unpleasant smells and a reduced water flow. Anyone can clean a garden fountain quickly and easily to keep it sparkling and fresh by following these simple steps. Unplug the fountain pump. Drain the water from the fountain. Use the fountain’s drain plug, if there is one, or pump it into a bucket with your fountain’s pump and a long piece of tubing. Remove any debris that is left inside, such as twigs, leaves or grass. Wipe the garden fountain surfaces thoroughly with a rag, using an old, soft-bristled toothbrush to gently scrub detailed areas or algae spots. White vinegar may be used to remove stubborn algae growth or discoloration caused by dirt and mud.
Rinse the fountain surface with a hose. Pull the cover off the garden fountain pump and remove any debris that may be trapped inside. Wipe the inside and outside of the fountain pump and replace the cover. Perform any extra steps that may be recommended in your fountain instruction manual. Re-fill the fountain with water, adding water treatments to prevent algae and mineral stains as directed on the bottles.
