Installing an indoor water fountain won’t only give your commercial space a virtual facelift, but it’ll also keep the environment calm and composed. You might be wondering why installing an indoor water fountain can help you have that chic and modern look. Well, water fountains have come a long way, spanning from ancient Greek civilizations, the monarchies of Great Britain and France, all the way to the glamorous modern-day hotels of Las Vegas, water fountains, have stood the test of time.
The biggest hotels and the fanciest malls are often found incomplete without a waterfall wall and other indoor water features. If you’re planning to install indoor water features for your commercial building, then you might have several questions on your mind because with advancements in technology and a huge variety of styles and materials to choose from, you might end up being confused between different water features.
We understand that it can be stressful to find the right water feature for your commercial space. Therefore, we’ve answered the most common questions that help you in choosing the best indoor water feature for your commercial space.
Will there be any maintenance cost on the fountain?
You might have heard that fountains are very high maintenance, but that’s not true at all. Indoor water fountains are fairly low maintenance, and they are easy to care for. You just need to make sure that your fountain has enough water to circulate through its system. If your fountain keeps on working without any water, then its pump will start to malfunction and eventually break down.
How to check water level?
The simplest way is to check your indoor fountain’s basin from time to time to make sure that the water level is sufficiently high. If water seems to be running low, then add more water. Another way of checking water is by listening to your fountain. If the pump is making spurting noise instead of smooth flowing or rippling, then the pump might be having difficulty in rotating water because of its low level.
Cleaning the fountain
If you look carefully at the basin of your fountain, then you’ll notice dirt along with other debris at the bottom. This is mainly because the negative ions from your fountain’s water source attract these particles from air. To keep your fountain minty clean, simply unplug it, drain the water and wipe down its bottom with a clean, damp cloth. You can also wipe your pump with a clean cloth because it usually gathers most of the dirt and debris.
Will my indoor water fountain make noise?
If you’re installing a small indoor water fountain, then there will be less noise; if the fountain is large in size, then there will be some noise; in short, the level of noise depends on the size and type of your fountain.
If you plan to install a large wall fountain, then be ready for a roar-like noise; if you’re installing a desktop fountain, then it will make a quiet, continuous burble, while a tiered garden fountain will make a flowing sound that will increase with size.
If your fountain is making more noise than usual, get it checked by a commercial indoor water fountain specialist.

How much electricity will the fountain consume?
Most indoor fountains that you see in malls and hotels use the same amount of electricity as a medium-sized lamp, which means that you shouldn’t see much difference in your electricity bill after installing your fountain.
