Keeping Water Where It Belongs

Just to be safe, assume that anything that contains water can leak or be spilled. (You might even spill some water while adding it to the fountain.) So, you should not put the fountain anyplace where leaking or spilled water could damage furniture, flooring or other property.

Some fountains become moist on the underside from condensation. If you are placing your fountain on fine wood, use some form of protection. Alternately, you could place your fountain on a ceramic tile or a trivet designed for hot food, thus raising it off the furniture and reducing the tendency for condensation. (However, make sure any elevating material [1] is not so high that the fountain is more likely to tip over, [2] can support the weight of the fountain, and [3] does not have feet which make indentations in the underlying wood.)

To more broadly guard against both condensation and splashing, buy a piece of 1/4-inch Plexiglas from your local hardware store. Have the store cut it to your size specifications, large enough to protect the area under and around your fountain.

Sometimes a higher rate of flow causes the water to splash too much. Look for the adjustment dial on your pump and try a lower setting.

Other ways to control splashing include trying to add, remove, or reposition any rocks or other objects. Some people make "splash guards" out of slate to catch the splashes and deflect them back into the bowl.

The farther water falls, the more it splashes. So as evaporation lowers the water level, any falling water will be more likely to splash (which creates a pleasant sound, but can also create a mess around your fountain). Therefore, monitor the water level and replenish water, as needed, to compensate for evaporation and to reduce splashing. (This also keeps the pump submerged, which is mandatory.)

Note: If you add rocks or other objects in the reservoir for either decoration, sound effects or splash control, use moderation. These objects consume some of the space intended for water. If the total volume of water is reduced, the water level will go down more quickly than normal as evaporation occurs. You’ll have to replenish water more frequently.
