Insider Tips for Maintaining Your Water Wall Fountain
Wall fountains are certainly an investment regardless of whether the intent is for home or office display. In order to keep collecting those dividends, proper set-up and maintenance is essential. Here are a few insider tips to extend the life of your wall fountain and keep it as beautiful as the day you purchased it for years to come.
Installation - The first step in preserving your water wall fountain is proper installation and mounting. It is very
important to follow the mounting instructions and use the hardware provided with the wall fountain, as once the water has been added to the wall fountain, it can become very heavy. A level will also prove handy during installation to ensure optimal water flow. Remember to consider the power source as well. Some wall fountains can be plugged into an outlet while others are hardwired and may require an electrician to support the installation efforts. Make sure you are properly prepared for this part of the process. It is not difficult but will cause issues if you don't follow through correctly.
Water Maintenance - Proper maintenance of your water wall fountain means utilizing the right kind of water which will also help extend the time in between cleanings. Be sure to use either distilled water, which is convenient for replacing water that has evaporated, or a water treatment product which will reduce scale buildup. Remember to check the water level frequently, avoid letting the water level drop, and let the fountain run constantly for the health of the water pump! If you decide to go with one of our custom bubble panels, we have an innovative new system that does not require you to add any water ever! It is a closed loop system with no room for water to escape. This brings maintenance needs down significantly.
Cleaning - A regular cleaning schedule for your water wall fountain is just as important as the other items in your home or office. Stay away from harsh cleaners that damage the slate. A paste of baking soda and water should be strong enough to clean any trouble spots. Albeit not the most visually appealing part of the fountain, the pump is by far the most important and it needs to be scrubbed when cleaning the fountain.
