Water features are gaining quite a bit of popularity these days. They make people’s yards look more refined, elegant, and calming. Of the water features you could install around your property, waterfalls pique many people’s interests. They transform your yard into a uniquely placating sanctuary.
To maximize how much value you gain from your waterfall, proper maintenance will be necessary. The amount of enjoyment you get from your waterfall is related to the amount of work you put into maintaining it. Here is what you should do to take care of your waterfall.
Monitor the Water From Your Waterfall
Watch how the water flows inside of your waterfall. Do you see any abnormalities such as sputtering taking place? Perhaps the water isn’t streaming as quickly as you hoped it would. If you detect any of the mentioned problems taking place, it’s likely going to be in your best interest to seek professional help getting it back to normal. It’s also a concern when the water itself doesn’t look right, such as if it looks dirty or murky.
Don’t Let Algae Get Out of Hand
If your waterfall is in good health, then it won’t have much, if any, algae inside of it. Algae hinders the quality of the water, and it can clog the waterfall to disrupt its flow. If the waterfall flows into a pond, floating plants can be a great asset to make sure everything remains healthy. Also, when refilling your waterfall, go with distilled water because water that isn’t distilled will have chemicals in it, which can sometimes allow algae to grow.
Get Your Filter Serviced
Make sure you understand all of the right maintenance procedures your filter needs and get it replaced whenever it’s necessary. When you have a functional filter, the water in your waterfall stays clean and fresh. Also, dirt and debris won’t have a chance to pile up.
Don’t Ignore Your Pump
The pump is a core component of your waterfall, and it must be regularly removed and cleaned. All pieces of your pump should be cleaned individually, making sure you get rid of any intrusive debris. Once the pump pieces are clean, put them back together and place the pump back in your waterfall.
