The Q&A Archives: Water fountains/ponds

Question: What do I need to put in my outdoor fountain to keep it clean?

Answer: A simple water fountain can be cleaned regularly with a scrub brush and bleach/water solution, then rinsed clean, just as one would clean a birdbath. There are also commercial algicides available. Read and carefully follow all of the label directions. Also be sure to dip out any debris and clean the impeller on your pump regularly.
