It is essential to clean it out and remove any debris or foreign objects that might have fallen into or onto it. Additionally, anywhere light from the sun combines with still water, algae can develop. To avoid this, there are some basic ingredients that can be added into the water, such as vinegar, sea salt, or hydrogen peroxide. Some people opt for pouring bleach into the water, but the drawback is that it harms wildlife - so it should be avoided.

Every three-four months, garden fountains should undergo a good cleaning. The initial step is to get rid of all the water. Then use a soft towel and gentle cleanser to scrub the inside. If there are any small grooves, grab a toothbrush to get every spot. Do not leave any soap deposit in or on the fountain.

Numerous organisms and calcium deposits may get inside the pump, so it is advised to take it apart and clean it completely. Soaking it in vinegar for a bit will make it easier to clean. Mineral or rain water, versus tap water, is ideal in order to eliminate any build-up of chemicals inside the pump.

And finally, make sure the water level is continuously full in order to keep your fountain operating optimally. If the water level slides below the pump’s intake level, it can damage the pump and cause it to burn out - something you do not want to happen!
