A commercial floating fountain or pond aeration system is a significant investment toward maintaining the water quality in your pond. These electrically-powered systems perform demanding work in a harsh, underwater environment. Much like your car, routine fountain maintenance costs less than fountain repairs, and should not be ignored.

Our service professionals are experienced with all major fountain brands, specializing in AquaMaster Fountains and Otterbine Fountains service and repair.

Does my pond fountain really need to be removed during the winter?
Yes. If you live where water can freeze over in winter time, your fountain should be removed from the water during the winter months. Ice can crack the plastic float and/or metal motor housing as well as seize the propeller/impeller assembly. Leaving your fountain in the water during the winter months risks permanent damage and will void the manufacturer's warranty.
Does my pond fountain really require an oil change?
Yes. Most commercial fountains consist of an electric motor in an oil-filled housing. Once the warranty period has ended, just like your car's engine, the oil and water-proof seal assembly should be changed on a regular schedule. The older the fountain, the more quickly the oil and seals will degrade.
Fountain Service FAQs
Do I really need "factory-trainED" PERSONNEL to work on a commercial fountain?
Yes. Most pond fountains are 240V appliances — like your oven or clothes washer — and are controlled from a watertight panel containing several complicated electrical circuits. Allowing untrained persons to work on the watertight motor or inside the electrical panel is not only dangerous, it commonly leads to nuisance breaker trips, faulty timers, blown capacitors and hours of troubleshooting.
