A beautiful fountain is the ideal centerpiece for the gardens of your country home and can be an eye catching conversation starter at barbecues or garden parties. Smaller fountains may be easier to maintain due to their size but larger fountains or those with more intricate details may need more regular care. Turn off the water of your fountain and pick up some of the following items to start the cleaning process:
• Distilled water
• Pressure washer
• Old toothbrush (for hard-to-reach areas)
Your water fountain may appear to be self cleaning but rust, dirt, leaves, and other matter can settle in which will harm the mechanism. The fountain may not last the test of time if it is not maintained every few months. It can also harm the aesthetics of the fountain, so read on to find out how to make a start on cleaning your outdoor fountain.
