Warmer, sunnier weather is right around the corner, and depending on where you live in the country, you may already be experiencing it. With the spring weather upon us, it’s time to start prepping your water fountain for the new season.
First and foremost, if you have a fountain that uses a rechargeable battery, you’re going to want to fully charge it for the recommended time. Depending upon the battery, this could be anywhere from 10-16 hours.
While your battery is charging, it is time to fully clean the fountain. For this process, it’s best to use a soft cloth and some mild soap if needed. Cleaning your fountain thoroughly before setting it up will help keep it looking its best throughout the season.
Lastly before setting up your fountain completely, you’re going to want to clean the pump. Cleaning the pump means taking it apart and cleaning the inside parts, like the impeller and pump. If you’re unsure how to clean a water fountain pump, click here for an instructional video.
Once you’ve finished prepping your water fountain for set up, follow your instruction manual for the original set up instructions.
