Caring For Outdoor Garden Fountains

You will need to have an electrical outlet in the vicinity of the fountain so it can be powered. Since there are many kinds of outdoor wall fountains, installation methods vary, but the majority include user-friendly instructions.

Most outdoor wall fountains come in "for-dummies" style kits that will give you everything you need to properly install it. A submersible pump, hoses and basin, or reservoir, are included in the kit. If the size is appropriate, the basin can be concealed amongst your garden plants. Once installed, wall fountains typically only require some light maintenance and regular cleaning.

Replenishing and purifying the water on a routine basis is very important. Rubbish such as branches, leaves or dirt should be cleared away quickly. Protecting your outdoor wall fountain from the freezing winter climate is vital. If kept outdoors, your pump could break as a result of frigid water, so bring it inside during the winter. The bottom line is that if you properly maintain and care for your outdoor fountain, it will bring you joy for many years.
