Most of these freestanding sculptures were what is known as kouros figures, statues of young, attractive male or female (kore) Greeks. Symbolizing beauty to the Greeks, the kouroi were created to look rigid and always had foot in front; the males were vigorous, powerful, and naked. Life-sized versions of the kouroi appeared beginning in 650 BC. During the Archaic time, a big time of changes, the Greeks were evolving new sorts of government, expressions of art, and a deeper understanding of people and cultures outside Greece.

Keeping Your Garden Fountain Clean

Keeping Your Garden Fountain Clean Proper care and regular upkeep are important to the longevity of water fountains. Leaves, twigs, and bugs often find their way into fountains, so it is essential to keep yours free from such things. On top of that, algae can be a concern, because sun hitting the water enables it to form easily. Stir hydrogen peroxide, sea salt, or vinegar into the water to avoid this particular issue. Some people opt for putting bleach into the water, but the problem is that it harms wildlife - so it should be avoided.

No more than three-four months should go by without an extensive maintaining of a fountain.Keeping Garden Fountain Clean 1521637817.jpg The initial step is to empty out all the water. Then use a soft cloth and mild cleanser to scrub the inside. If there are any small grooves, grab a toothbrush to get every spot. Any soap residue remaining on your fountain can damage it, so be sure it is all rinsed off.

Numerous organisms and calcium deposits can get inside the pump, so it is recommended to take it apart and clean it thoroughly. Soaking it in vinegar for a time will make it easier to wash. Build-up can be a big headache, so use mineral or rain water over tap water, when possible, to eliminate this dilemma.

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