The principles of winter fountain care are very similar to caring for your concrete garden statuary. You will want to fill the bowls of the fountain with absorbent materials such as Henri Underlay, burlap bags, blankets, etc. We also recommend covering your fountain with a fountain cover, such as a Henri Fountain Cover. In general you will want to avoid allowing water to collect and freeze in the bowls of fountain. You will also want to avoid allowing the pedestal of your fountain to sit in frozen water.

Another precaution we recommend with fountain winter preparation is taking out the pump and storing the pump inside. You can also use this as an opportunity to clean your fountain pump. To clean, remove front pump housing. Brush and/or wipe clean the inside of the housing and the pump’s inner face. Remove the impeller and shaft and rinse, using warm vinegar water or Henri Lime Remover to remove any hard water calcium deposits. Reassemble impeller and housing in reverse order. Take care not to open the sealed pump case protecting the motor. Also, avoid subjecting the pump to strong chemicals or harsh water conditions.

Following these recommendations will ensure enjoyment of your fountain for years to come.
