Your Fountain: Upkeep & Routine ServiceFountain: Upkeep & Routine Service 079733967842416.jpg Setting up an outdoor wall fountain requires that you take into account the dimensions of the space where you are going to place it. A strong wall is definitely necessary to hold up its overall weight. Therefore for smaller areas or walls, a more lightweight feature is going to be more suitable. In order for the fountain to have electrical power, a nearby electrical socket is needed. Since there are many kinds of outdoor wall fountains, installation methods vary, but the majority include user-friendly instructions.

Generally, when you purchase an outdoor wall fountain, it will come in an easy-to-use kit that will include all the needed information to install it properly. In the kit you will find all the needed elements: a submersible pump, hoses and basin, or reservoir. The basin, if it's not too large, can easily be concealedin your garden among the plants. Other than the regular cleaning, little maintenance is required once your outdoor wall fountain is installed.

Replenish and clean the water on a regular schedule. Rubbish such as branches, leaves or dirt should be cleaned up quickly. Make sure that your outdoor wall fountain is protected from freezing winter temperatures. Your pump may break when subjected to freezing water during the cold weather, so it is best to bring it indoors to avoid any damage. All in all, an outdoor wall fountain can last for any number of years with the right servicing and cleaning.

The History of Outdoor Garden Fountains

The History of Outdoor Garden Fountains The translation of hundreds of classical Greek documents into Latin was commissioned by the learned Pope Nicholas V who led the Church in Rome from 1397 till 1455. In order to make Rome deserving of being the capital of the Christian world, the Pope resolved to embellish the beauty of the city.History Outdoor Garden Fountains 63276144478318652.jpg At the bidding of the Pope, the Aqua Vergine, a ruined aqueduct which had transported clean drinking water into Rome from eight miles away, was renovated starting in 1453. The ancient Roman custom of marking the arrival point of an aqueduct with an magnificent celebratory fountain, also known as a mostra, was restored by Nicholas V. The Trevi Fountain now occupies the space previously filled with a wall fountain built by Leon Battista Albert, an architect commissioned by the Pope. The aqueduct he had refurbished included modifications and extensions which eventually enabled it to supply water to the Trevi Fountain as well as the renowned baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona.
