Also to know is, how does a small fountain pump work?

Fountain Pumps. Submerged in the reservoir, the pump draws water into its housing, where an impeller (a water propeller spun by electricity) forces the water out through the pump's outflow fitting. Vinyl hose carries the recirculating water from the pump to the fountain piece where the water emerges again.

Secondly, where does the pump go in a water fountain? When caring for your water fountain, it's important to pay attention to where the pump is located. Fountain pumps are usually hidden beneath the base of the model, flushing water up and out continuously. The water, which is recycled, will eventually evaporate into the air.

Considering this, how do you fix a fountain pump?

Make sure that clean water is circulating through the pump. Make sure the pump is properly installed, that the pump is submerged.

To clear a pump of debris, follow these simple instructions:

  1. Unplug the pump.
  2. Remove the pump cover.
  3. Pull out the magnetic impeller.
  4. Replace the impeller and cover.
