PUMPS:
The most common type of pump is the submersible. These are noise-free pumps which are easy to install and are efficient and easy to maintain. Submersible pumps are also inexpensive to install and operate. When using a water fountain pump, ensure ensure water in present, otherwise the pump can burn itself out. Water will also naturally evaporate from the fountain, so the water level needs to be replenished often.

Selecting:
When selecting a water fountain for your garden you should bear in mind the following points. It is important to select a style which will complement your garden plants and surroundings. Depending on the pump being used, it is possible to get your fountain to make a variety of noises, from babbling sounds (similar to a mountain stream), to gurgling (such as the runoff from a thunderstorm), through to splashing noises (like a small stream of water pouring into a pool). If you would like it, it is also possible to get the water to shoot into the air (however bear in mind that while this is dramatic it is susceptible to the wind and is likely to cause spattering outside the fountain).

Because a fountain reticulates the water, anything spilled it in will run through the system. The fountain should be cleaned on a regular basis, to remove obstacles such as leaves, etc.

The location you select for your garden water fountain should be firm and solid, as even a slightly tilted fountain may not be able to function correctly.
