Fountain refurbishment: practical pointers
Article publication date: 1 January 1992
Suggests refurbishment of the many disused public fountains (estimated at up to 2000 in the UK) can be achieved at a fraction of the cost of creating new water displays. Briefly reviews deterioration points – statuary, perimeter walls, pool walls and floor, pumping equipment, pipeworks, pump screens, nozzles and valves, filtration, wind – and water‐controls, winter protection and electrical safety. Concludes that programmed maintenance, and the establishment of specific maintenance responsibility, is crucial for public display fountain operation.
