During warmer months, you'll want to clean debrise - leaves and twigs for example - from your fountain at least once each week. Take particular care to clear any debris from around pump as well, so it doesn't clog.
Add a small touch of bleach or special algae removing solution to your fountain regularly, to keep water clear and prevent residue or algae buildup around sides. If your fountain is accessible to pets and animals: do not use bleach. Instead, be sure to use an animal friendly cleaner such as Microbe-Lift Fountain Clear (http://www.buy-outdoor-fountains.com/Microbe-Lift-Large-Fountain-Clear.php).
Following these simple maintenance tips will help keep your outdoor fountains in tip top, beautiful condition for many years to come.
