There are some “chores” I really don’t mind doing, mainly ones that involve being in the garden and those that have a great *ta da* moment once complete. Which puts cleaning our self-contained water feature "on the list".
Adored by the family and commented on by many guests, our Genoa Cascade Solar Powered Fountain is a great focal point in the garden. However, as you can see from the pictures it has been needing a clean as there was a build up of green water and slime.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clean your self-contained water feature and how to use Blagdon’s Feature Algae Control Treatment 250ml to keep future unsightly and foul-smelling problems at bay. Ideally you should change the water once a month and add in the treatment in then too.
*Please note -Feature Clear is toxic to aquatic life so should only be used in free standing water features which do not use a pond as a water source. The product may also cause damage to plants present in treated water feature.
*Another thing to note - It is important to drain your feature during the winter and dry it by covering it, or move it into to storage. This is because ice in shallow water may damage the paint work or crack the feature.
