Bubble Wall Maintenance and Care
Posted by on
A bubble wall is a great addition to any home or business. They come in a variety of colors and bubble speeds that make it easy for you to create a unique feel and atmosphere to any room. Bubble walls are safe and they aren’t messy like traditional indoor fountains.
Another major benefit of bubble walls is their easy maintenance.
Besides the possible mess of sloshing water, many people shy away from indoor fountains because they can be hard and time-consuming to clean. The appropriate water level needs to be maintained and regular scrubbing and cleaning is needed to prevent algae growth. Larger indoor fountains require more time and effort to maintain.
Bubble walls, on the other hand, are easy to take care of. With these fountains, the most regular thing to do is to make sure there is the optimum amount of water in the bubble wall.
Here are some tips in maintaining your bubble wall so as to ensure proper operation for many years to come:
- Keep the fountain full. Bubble walls don’t perform as well if they are not completely full. Evaporation can occur whether the bubble wall is being used or not. To avoid the loss of bubble wall performance, make sure the feature is completely full of water.
- Protect against evaporation. Each bubble wall comes with a plastic insert that prevents the evaporation of water from the fountain. Make sure this part is securely fastened to the bubble wall to prevent evaporation.
- Make sure all the connections are in good, working order. Be sure the power supply connections are secure and out of the way so they are not tripping hazards. Likewise, check all the airline connections to be sure there are no leaks or loose tubes. The airline connections are essential in producing the namesake bubbles.
- Clean the glass panel regularly and gently. While it may be tempting to use glass cleaner since the panels are glass, don’t. Glass cleaners and other cleaners contain harsh chemicals and properties that can scratch and destroy the glass panels over time. Instead, use a damp, soft towel.
- Find the source of bubble clogs. If you notice the bubble output of your bubble wall becomes blocks or if it slows down, it is important to locate the clogged wand tube and clean it. To do this, completely empty out the bubble wall, take-out the clogged wand tube from the tank, clean it and re-insert it using soapy water.
- Use a soft brush to clean bubble wand tubes. Metal brushes, needles and picks can scratch, damage and weaken the bubble wand tubes, increasing their likelihood of failure or poor performance. A small, soft brush, such as a toothbrush is ideal.
- Replace broken or faulty parts quickly. The Water Gallery has all the replacement parts you need to get your bubble wall back up and running again. Your bubble wall is a great investment. Don’t let it sit there, being unused because of old or damaged parts.
Bubble walls are great to have. The variety of styles and colors they come in make it easy for you to set the right tone, feel and atmosphere you want to achieve in a room. There is no sloshing water, making them clean and safe for kids. Their sizes and shapes make them ideal to be used for a variety of purposes including being used as an extra wall or room divider or simply as a focal point to a room.
Bubble walls are also inexpensive and easy to maintain. Regular topping off, checking the tubing and connections and cleaning the glass panels are all there is to do.
