Holy Mountain Trading Company - Care and Cleaning of Indoor Fountains

Indoor fountains normally require much less maintenance than outdoor fountains. Where a fountain is kept will have a lot to do with how often it should be cleaned. One of the best ways to keep a fountain clean is to run it. Water will evaporate by running the fountain and most probably chlorinated tap water will be added to replenish it. If hard water is used it should be changed more often because over a period of time the minerals in the water become very concentrated.
When the fountain is cleaned, all debris should be rinsed from the reservoir and the pump disassembled and rinsed out. It does not take much grit or scale to stall the pump motor. If the pump is plugged in and does not run, it probably needs to be rinsed out and will work just fine. Hard water scale deposits can be removed from the pump and most objects in the fountain by soaking them in Lime-a-Way or other similar cleaner.
