How to Keep Your Outdoor Fountain Water Clean

What’s the use of getting an outdoor water fountain if you can’t keep it clean, proper and tidy? There are many ways to clean your fountain, however we’ll be highlighting a few of the best. At Oklahoma Ponds, we can do this for you at an affordable rate and make sure your fountain water is at its cleanest.

Let’s take you through the unique ways of maintaining the sanctity of your outdoor water fountain.

Why Does Outdoor Fountain Water Get Dirty?

Before we go into the nitty-gritty of how to keep outdoor water fountains clean, it’s necessary to show just how they get dirty in the first place. Here are a few of the many things that make a clear water fountain dirty.

  • Birds 

As much as birds add scenery and a touch of nature to your fountain, they can also be quite pesky and largely disruptive if due care isn’t taken. Additionally, birds have the bad habits of dropping their fecal all over your adored fountain. Some also find ways of finding and disposing dirty leaves into the pool of clean water. If you love the scenery that birds give your fountain, you should also love the extra maintenance you’re bound to observe. 

  • Location

It’s not every day that a homeowner lives in a gated community or a place where pesky neighbors or other animals don’t trespass on a regular basis. That’s why choosing the right location is a critical factor when choosing the placement of your water fountain. If the fountain is placed in the backyard and children are present, those wonderful kids could damage or ruin the fountain if proper maintenance is not maintained at all times.

  • Poor Layout 

Outdoor water fountains are typically a well-thought-out addition to an established residency. That’s why it’s important pay close detail to the layout of the pond. One of the biggest issues maintaining the cleanliness of a fountain is being prone to dirt which can lead to clogging the pipes or causing erosion over time. Oklahoma Ponds has you covered, whether you plan to renovate or if you’re looking for consistent maintenance.

How Can I Properly Maintain My Outdoor Fountain/Pond and Waterfall?

Once you get the construction or renovation taken care of, the next thing to do is start the maintenance. That means that it’s a whole different ball game. While there are tons of ways to do this, we can show you a few that’ll be of immense use in your pond maintenance schedule.

  • Clean your pond regularly.

The most important step in maintaining your pond, and preserving it for a long time is to clean it regularly. No matter how isolated or well-constructed a pond is, it needs constant cleaning. If you can’t do this, then there’s no point in having the facility in the first place. But that’s why you got us at Oklahoma Ponds, we’re the best in the business and consistency is our biggest mantra. As long as you can clean the pond regularly, you’ll be sure that it will maintain its shine, aura, and prestige, no matter how long you’ve had it!

  • Control algae growth.

While algae are not necessarily a bad thing, neither is it harmful to the species in the pond, it could be very ugly if not nipped in the bud. It would be such a shame if the pristine pond that you spent a significant amount of money and time, gets taken over by algae. That’s why you need to control the algae growth and make sure that it does not get out of control, you can contact Oklahoma Ponds for this. We’ve got the best remedy to keep your pond fresh and tidy.

  • Troubleshoot and repair any leaks.

A major flaw that we’ve noticed in a lot of pond owners, has to be their seemingly lax nature after they’ve gotten the pond constructed and working for a few months. They suddenly stop cleaning, they stop monitoring the territory, and worst of all they avoid checking out the facility for potential leaks. All of the mentioned could be very detrimental to the pond and none is more harmful than the leaking aspect. You have to ensure that the pond is frequently troubleshot to avoid a disastrous leak and permanent damage to the facility. Do this, and your pond is safe for the long haul. Do the other, and well, just expect the other not so good side of the coin.

Professional Pond Maintenance vs DIY

Homeowners often ask us what makes the most sense for them: Having a professional to maintain your pond or getting equipped to do it by yourself? Even though we are a well-staffed and highly recommended pond maintenance company, we will give you an honest answer and proper reasons to back it up. Firstly, we will give you the merits of hiring a professional and then the merits of doing it yourself.

There will be no stress, no fuss, and certainly no horror stories. You don’t have to take our word for it, just check out the online reviews we’ve gotten from customers.

  • Stress and Labor Free

Take our word for it, maintaining a pond is no easy task. You will carry out hard labor and this will be overburdening if you don’t have a proper backup. However, a professional service company like ours has all the labor that is needed for the job. Why do you want to stress yourself when we can get the job done for you?

  • We Have Seen It All

Like we said before, as long as it’s about fountains and ponds, Oklahoma Ponds has you covered. There’s nothing in pond or fountain maintenance that we haven’t seen in our many years of service.

Merits of Doing It Yourself

  • Save Money

Everything these days is already on the internet so what’s the point of spending your money and hiring so-called professionals. Honestly, it’s fine, and we will understand if that’s the path you choose to follow. Saving money is important to every homeowner as well as saving time. If you’re a homeowner who loves to learn how to do it themselves, then be prepared to forego a labor intensive and time-consuming project.

  • A sense of accomplishment

There’s nothing more fulfilling for someone knowing that they’ve accomplished a labor intensive and time-consuming project. It’s certainly an accomplishment to look at your outdoor pond or fountain and you know that you not only built it from scratch, but you’re also responsible for its maintenance without any outside help.
