A yard or garden water feature is a beautiful addition to any home. Still, it’s important to keep in mind that it needs regular maintenance like any other piece of equipment. One common issue with yard water features is cracking and leaks. If this happens, don’t panic! Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue and get your water feature back up and running.
What To Do When There Is A Leak
First, check the water level in your feature. If it’s low, top it up using a garden hose. This will help to identify where the leak is coming from. Once you’ve determined the source of the leak, you can start to make repairs.
If the crack is small, you may be able to fix it with silicone caulk or pond sealant. If the crack is larger, you may need to replace the entire section of the water feature. In either case, it’s important to take care when making repairs. Be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully, and always work with caution around water.
If the water level is correct and the cracks and leaks are still occurring, you’ll want to take a look at the pump. Make sure it’s turned on and has enough water pressure to push the water up to the top of the feature. If it’s not, you may need to adjust the settings or buy a new pump.
