Things to know before you get started.
7 Water Feature Fixes for a Pro
  1. 1. Careful positioning

    When choosing a spot for an installation pro to hook up your water feature, try to avoid exposed areas where high winds could affect the structure and areas near trees.

  2. 2. Debris removal

    Regular maintenance from a skilled expert can keep the inner workings free and clear and your fountain or water feature looking its best.

  3. 3. Pump cleanings

    It's wise to have a professional check and maintain the pump regularly, especially during fall when leaves are dropping, to prevent issues.

  4. 4. Seasonal care

    A weekly maintenance schedule prevents debris accumulation, and a pro can winterize the system before big chills hit.

  5. 5. Immediate crack repair

    Have your maintenance pro regularly check for cracks in the fountain or feature and have him repair any defects you find right away to prevent them from worsening.

  6. 6. Replace the water

    Making sure your expert changes the water frequently, particularly in summer when bugs may breed in it. He or she can also take the time to examine the pump and perform any routine maintenance.

  7. 7. Keep the water level topped up

    Insufficient water is a common cause of damage to a fountain or water feature. You do not want the pump to run dry, as it can cause issues.
