Subsequently, one may also ask, what can I put in my fountain to keep the water clean?
Take your fountain apart and clean each surface using soap and hot water and allow to air dry before reassembling. Wipe down the fountain with distilled white vinegar or a solution of 1 cup of bleach per gallon of water before soaping and rinsing the fountain. Rinse bleach thoroughly.
Should I leave my water fountain on all the time?
Make sure the pump is completely submersed in the water while running to avoid motor damage. Frequently turning the fountain on and off isn't good for the pump and should be avoided. Keep your new fountain running all of the time for optimal performance and functionality.
