WINTER CARE AND GENERAL FOUNTAIN INSTRUCTIONS - W I N T E R C A R E - Fountain bowls/tops and other fountain components, which collect water, should not be left outside in the winter since any component, which fills with water and freezes may crack. Likewise, components such as pedestals, which remain in a basin, filled with water, which then freezes, may also crack or crumble. Ideally, therefore, a fountain should always be stored indoors or in a dry protected place such as a covered porch away from the elements. However, if a fountain must be left outside:
(1) Remove the pump, rubber stoppers, drainpipes, finials, and other small components for storage indoors. Note that stoppers or drainpipes are removed to allow drainage in the event water accumulates in any basin. Compression stoppers may be left on the pump cord for easier assembly next season.
(2) Raise fountain base from the ground with wood strips so that base will not freeze to the ground surface. (3) Cover or wrap the fountain with burlap or
(3) Cover or wrap the fountain with burlap or other absorbent material (old blanket or towel) and then cover securely with plastic, making sure that water will not accumulate in the basin, or other fountain component and freeze; (4) Check fountain periodically to
(4) Check fountain periodically to insure that plastic is secure and water is not accumulating in any fountain component. -
G E N E R A L F O U N T A I N T I P S - Install fountains on a level surface. You will need a properly grounded 110-volt (AC only) GFCI protected receptacle near the fountain for your pump. All pumps are submersible and must be completely underwater to function properly. Test all pumps and adjust to full output before assembly. It is not recommended that fountains be placed directly on grass or dirt. Position the channel opening at the base of each fountain toward the electrical outlet to be used since the pump cord will be threaded through this opening.
