It is easy for foreign items to find their way into outdoor fountains, so keeping it clean is important. On top of that, algae can be a challenge, as sun hitting the water allows it to form quickly. Mix hydrogen peroxide, sea salt, or vinegar into the water to avoid this particular issue. Another option is to blend bleach into the water, but this action can hurt wild animals and so should really be avoided.

Experts advise that the typical garden fountain undergoes a thorough scrubbing every 3-4 months. Before you can start washing it you need to drain out all of the water. When you have done this, wash inside the water reservoir with a gentle detergent. Feel free to use a toothbrush if needed for any tiny crevasses. Any soap residue remaining on your fountain can damage it, so be sure it is all rinsed off.

It is highly suggested taking the pump apart to better clean the inside and remove any plankton or calcium. You might want to let it soak in vinegar for a few hours to make it quicker to clean. Mineral or rain water, versus tap water, is ideal in order to avoid any build-up of chemicals inside the pump.

Finally, be sure to have a quick look at your fountain daily and add water if you notice that the level is depleted. Low water levels can ruin the pump - and you do not want that!

A Chronicle of Wall Fountains

Chronicle Wall Fountains 7756489743.jpg A Chronicle of Wall Fountains Pope Nicholas V, himself a learned man, reigned the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of ancient classic Greek documents into Latin. In order to make Rome worthy of being the capital of the Christian world, the Pope decided to embellish the beauty of the city. Starting in 1453, the ruined ancient Roman aqueduct known as the Aqua Vergine which had brought clean drinking water into the city from eight miles away, underwent reconstruction at the bidding of the Pope. The ancient Roman custom of marking the entry point of an aqueduct with an magnificent celebratory fountain, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The Trevi Fountain now occupies the area previously filled with a wall fountain crafted by Leon Battista Albert, an architect employed by the Pope. The water which eventually provided the Trevi Fountain as well as the renown baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona flowed from the modified aqueduct which he had renovated.

The Dispersion of Outdoor Fountain Design Knowledge

The Dispersion of Outdoor Fountain Design Knowledge Dissiminating useful hydraulic information and water fountain design ideas all through Europe was accomplished with the published documents and illustrated books of the time. An unnamed French water fountain developer became an globally renowned hydraulic leader in the late 1500's. His know-how in making landscapes and grottoes with integrated and brilliant water attributes began in Italy and with mandates in Brussels, London and Germany. The publication, “The Principles of Moving Forces,” written near the end of his life in France, turned out to be the fundamental text on hydraulic mechanics and engineering. The book updated important hydraulic discoveries since classical antiquity as well as detailing modern day hydraulic technologies. Dominant among these works were those of Archimedes, the creator of the water screw, a mechanical method of transferring water.Dispersion Outdoor Fountain Design Knowledge 12569785171397051.jpg An beautiful fountain with the sun warming the water in two containers stashed in a neighboring room was shown in one illustration. The end result: the water feature is activated by the heated water expanding and rising up the piping. The book also mentions garden ponds, water wheels, water feature concepts.
