Ponds are beautiful, but a backyard pond can become an even more impressive feature with a little extra effort. One of the easiest and most effective ways to add drama to any pond is by installing a floating fountain. Here are some reasons why every pond owner should want a fountain and what to do with it after installation.
Erase Unwanted Noise
Not every pond sits in the middle of a blissful meadow or a hidden forest. Many backyard ponds were built to provide tranquility to their suburban owners. If background noise from traffic or neighbors ruins the serenity of the yard, a fountain may be the solution. The water sounds from the spray can block out other noises and make it easier to meditate and forget about the world. Fountains with a taller spray are louder than smaller models, so everyone can find a balance where the moving water will block unwanted background noise without interrupting conversations.
Create More Appeal
Fountains are perfect for both night and day displays. The water spray is an appealing visual element during the day and the show can continue after dark with the addition of lights. Pond fountains can come with a single color, change colors or offer a rainbow of water sprays. Fountains look great alone but are even more fun when added to an ever-changing array of decorative displays. There are lighted features like Christmas trees and other holiday designs as well as lighted lily pads, decorative floating duck houses and even floating fire pits.
Keep it Clean
The best images of pond life are a clear and fresh body of water overflowing with plants and wildlife. Floating fountains help to make that image a reality by aerating the pond. Aerated water has less algae and a better pH balance for a healthy, thriving environment.
Floating fountains are the easiest and most convenient way to create a dramatic water display. The fountains stay on the surface of the water, so rising and falling water levels do not affect their performance. It is easy to remove this feature from the pond, so owners can change them out with other displays or pull them out when the water starts to freeze.
