    Is there a way to adjust the volume of the water?

    Posted 4th May 2015

    Almost all of our water fountains come with adjustable flow pumps. This means that the pump has a switch that controls the force of the water. Simply using this adjustor will change the volume of the water.
    With stone water features, always wet the surface of the stone before running the water feature so that the water flows down properly.
    If you would like to decrease the water sound, you can add river rocks to the basin of your water feature which will decrease the ‘splashing’ noise when the water drips back into the reservoir. 
    The water level in the reservoir basin of your water fountain also affects the volume of the water sound. If you decrease the water level (always making sure that the pump is entirely submerged), the volume will increase, and vise versa.

    Pump maintenance for your water feature/fountain.

    Posted 20th May 2015

    The pump is the single most important piece of equipment in your water feature/fountain/pond. If it’s not working or working at reduced capacity, shut it off and remove it before cleaning the pump. Look for obstructions and other signs of wear about once a month.

    • Remove leaves and other debris from the pump’s intake valve and housing. With the pump taken out of the fountain/ water feature, wipe it clean with a damp cloth. Use a brush to scrub hard-to-reach areas.
    • Flush the pump and hose lines if they appear to be clogged.
    • Replace filters or damaged components as necessary.
    • Ensure that the pump is fully submerged in water
    • If there are no plants or fish in your water feature / pond/ fountain place a lid full of house hold bleach in the water once a month to help keep algae at bay.This will help reduce algae getting clogged in the pump.

    Feng Shui water fountain.

    Posted 4th June 2015

    A good feng shui water fountain or water feature is highly ornamental, pleasing to the eyes  and brings splendor into your garden or living room.  It can alone offers a focal point for your interest and your visitors in home.  And who would not respond to the music of water pouring and gushing constantly? It’s pleasing to the ears as well as soothing to our world-weary nerves.

    You must place water fountain or water feature in your wealth corners- south east, south west and north. However please remember if these areas fall in your bedroom, bathroom or kitchen then you must place the water feature in the wealth corner of your living room.

    Also don’t have a fountain under a stair way. This can cause illness or other misfortune to children. You can also have a water feature in the wealth corner of your garden. You can place the water fountain at the front door
