General Fountain FAQ's

Distilled water will help prevent mineral buildup, as well as reduce algae growth, but it is not required to use distilled water.

Generally, our fountains are capable of resisting wind, but if your area experiences severe wind conditions your fountain could be knocked over. You can prevent damage to your fountain by moving it indoors or into a sheltered area during inclement weather. If your fountain is too large to be moved, remove the lighter portions of the fountain that could be blown away and store them indoors until conditions are less windy.

You should store the fountain in a dry, covered space during the winter season, especially if your area experiences freezing temperatures. Before storing your fountain for the season, drain it and allow it to dry completely. If your fountain is too large to move, place a protective cover over it. For more information about how to winterize your fountain, check out our article 8 Do’s and Don’ts for Winterizing Your Outdoor Fountain.
