Updated:2013-09-03 15:43:18

An outdoor water fountain is a great asset. It adds to the beauty of your backyard or garden and also adds a soothing element to the overall ambiance. An outdoor water fountain does require some more care and maintenance as compared to indoor water fountains. The below tips will help you take proper care of your outdoor water fountain so that it will last in good shape for many years.

                                                     

1 – Choose an Appropriate Installation Spot

The first step you must take to ensure longevity for your outdoor water fountain is to choose a suitable spot for its placement. Keep it away from high traffic areas to avoid damage to the fountain and also to prevent accidents when children run around. Place it in a location where it will be displayed prominently, while at the same time will be protected from high winds.
2 – Ensure that the Water Fountain is Securely Placed
If not secured in place, your outdoor water fountain may topple over and get damaged by strong winds. Make sure the base of the fountain is affixed firmly to the ground and that the basin in turn is secured to the base. This will help hold the fountain in lace during adverse weather conditions.
3 – Clean the Fountain with Compatible Cleaners
Outdoor water fountains are made of different materials such as concrete, stainless steel and copper, to name a few. When you clean your outdoor water fountain, bear in mind that the cleaner must be compatible with the maintenance material in question. Avoid abrasive cleaners as far as possible.
4 – Pick out Leaves and Other Debris Regularly
Dead leaves, twigs, algae and bird droppings are some of the many contaminants you find in outdoor water fountains. You must pick out these contaminants regularly, to prevent formation of stone block and impediments in water flow.
