Maintenance & Winterization

Maintenance

The Giant Fountains require no routine maintenance. If the screen becomes clogged, the basket type screen can easily be removed while the fountain is in place and cleaned with a wire brush.

Winterization

Giant Fountains must be removed in climates that experience cold winters and frozen waters before lakes freeze over. The motor and pump must be stored in a heated area that stays above 32° Fahrenheit or 0° Celsius.
