Hanging Wall Fountains - What To Consider


Hanging wall fountains make truly exceptional additions to both the outdoor garden and the interior of the home, but it is important to know a thing or two about the way that wall fountains operate before you can properly care for and maintain the hanging wall fountains in your home and garden. If you want to get the most benefit and enjoyment out of hanging wall fountains, then it’s important both to install them correctly, and then to operate them properly.

For example, one of the most important considerations to make when determining how to install your wall fountain is to know how much it weighs, and how much weight your chosen wall can handle so that you do not end up installing your hanging wall fountains on a surface that is unable to withstand the weight of the fountain. Wall fountains are available in hundreds of sizes and weights so you will surely be able to find the one that will work well within the location you choose.

For example, hanging a modern cast resin wall fountain could be ideal for a drywall wall in your home, but if you try to install a similar fountain constructed from intricately carved marble or slate, you may have great difficulties. You need to make sure that the wall fountains and the walls that you choose all work well with one another before you attempt any mounting!

Here is another consideration to make when it comes to indoor hanging wall fountains. If your fountain is on, you should absolutely never allow it to run out of water. If there is no water in the fountain but it is still running, the pump and motor will quickly burn out. Every eight hours or so you should check the water level and add more water if needed. You should also consistently check for breaks or cracks. Although very rare, if you think there might be a break, turn the fountain off, fill the water up completely to the top and wait to see if any water leaks out. If the water is still, you are probably ok.

The best and most effective way to clean your hanging wall fountains is with the use of a soft and slightly damp piece of cloth. You should also make sure that the water in the hanging wall fountains is clean, changing it out when necessary. Depending on what temperature the water is, and what level of evaporation the water is experiencing, you may experience a build up of what looks like white residue – which is the result of mineral content gathering in the supply of water. Other parts of the fountain will also experience these mineral deposits, including any natural elements that are not stained or painted.

When cleaning your hanging wall fountains, it is important to use natural cleaning products that are not abrasive. Otherwise, the finish of your wall fountains may be damaged or destroyed all together. One suggested product is known as Protec. This cleaning solution is recommended because it can prevent mineral and algae growth in your hanging wall fountains' supply of water. Even just having chlorine in the water can damage the surfaces of the fountain as well as the inner workings of the mechanics behind the fountain's operation.

One of the biggest considerations that you can make is this: Once you purchase your hanging wall fountains, you should take time to read all of the literature that accompanies them. This is because you need to know how to fully operate and maintain your hanging wall fountains and to ensure you are using them properly.

Ever since they became popular in decorating, I've loved just about every type of wall water fountain I've seen. They're so lovely in the first place and when water is flowing through them, they make the loveliest sound. It's great to be able to bring what used to be an outdoor-only feature inside to enjoy!
