Pool, Patio & Fountain Cleaning with Power Washing
Depending on the source, condition and treatment of your local water, there are all kinds of minerals such as calcium and magnesium and even chlorine that leave behind a hard, white or gray film on your pool tile, waterfalls, fountains and pool deck.
Removing Water Scale in Your Pool
To remove this crusty buildup, you can use harsh chemicals and even pumice stones and lots and lots of elbow grease, but the results that you get for all the back-breaking labor are most often disappointing. Most people who go this route can tell you that the money you save is simply not worth the time and labor and mess that you go through with this method.
Chemicals and acids are often not safe for the uninitiated to use and they certainly are not bio-friendly. If used on the water line tile in your pool, you will have to wait hours or days for the toxins to filter out before swimming. If you use a pumice stone, you risk scratching your tile, and as you scrub, the pumice stone disintegrates and falls to the bottom of your pool. Cleaning the pumice granules up from the bottom of your pool can be a time-consuming mess. Yes, you want clean, sparkling pool tile, waterfalls and fountains – but without the toxins, labor and messy particles.
Don’t Let Your Horizon Pool Be Ruined
Horizon pools are stunning! But, once pool water has been flowing over that edge for a while, the wall below usually gets covered in mineral buildup and starts looking dirty. Whether the wall is rock, tile or a block wall, the buildup from the overflowing water needs attention and complete removal.
Rock waterfalls and large or small fountains have the same problem. Fountains or waterfalls get so much buildup they can look like white or gray paint due to the rocks and surfaces absorbing chemicals and minerals from your local water. How do you clean all this scale and residue without toxic chemicals? This is certainly not a project that you want to attempt with a pumice stone!
Your pool decking is also subject to splashed water that dries in the sun, causing crusts and film of minerals and pool chemicals to spoil the look of and even degrade the decking. This consistently damp area can also form mold and mildew causing black stains to grow. Mixed with hardened scale buildup, this can be quite a project to remove – unless you are a professional!
Flowing Water is Enjoyable
While flowing and sparkling water is one of the most serene and pleasurable visions, the buildup that is left behind detracts from that pure beauty. Not only will your pool water be cleaner, your fountains sparkle more and their pumps function more smoothly, all the surfaces that any of your outdoor water touches will last longer if kept clean and clear of mineral buildup.
Some of our power washing companies are offering glass bead blasting which are tiny glass beads that are applied by a low air pressure stream. This easily and yet gently removes calcium deposits without damaging your tile, rock or Pebble Tec surfaces.
Glass beads are created from soda-lime-type glass and is lead-free. There is no free silica and the shape is just like it sounds: tiny ball-shaped beads. Not only does this process remove calcium and mineral buildup, but it also removes embedded algae and cleans and brightens tile grout. This shape reveals a bright, smooth, satiny surface as it cleans and these beads are easily vacuumed out of the water and reused up to thirty times. No chemicals and environmentally safe, glass bead blasting is a fast way to remove unsightly mineral deposits from your outdoor water features.
Harsh Chemicals Are Unnecessary
Your pool deck and adjacent patio all suffer from water that has dried and left a residue. Whether our power washing service companies use a low pressure wide nozzle wand or a big surface cleaner, they can make short work of removing tough scale and mineral buildup from wood, concrete , brick or tile decking and patios. Seldom do our technicians have to use harsh chemicals or acids. Mostly, gleaming and clean surfaces are achieved with our commercial grade equipment and the know-how of the professional. If however, there is a deep stain, special solvents and cleaners can be applied to make sure that the final results are even and as clean as the rest of the area.
Your home is your biggest asset. If you are trying to sell your home, keeping all of your water features residue free is going to increase your sales price and the likelihood of a fast sale. Realtors know that if a house, its property and water features are all clean and mold/mildew free that the asking price can be increased 5- 10%.
If you are not selling, but just wanting more enjoyment from your pool, fountains and patio areas, then having one of our trained and experienced pressure washing service providers keep the area sparkling is a way to preserve your asset and increase your personal enjoyment of your property.

Give us a call to find out just how affordable and fast it is to keep your water features clean and functioning better. Your pumps will work better and you can get right back to swimming or enjoying your outside area right after we have left.

Washing a fountain pen – FountainPen
Washing a fountain pen is one of the most common maintenance operations, but although it is conceptually simple, it is also one of the operations on which there are so many different opinions, methodologies, and … sometimes even idiosyncrasies.
The first point to clarify then is that if you use a fountain pen continuously and keeping the same type of ink, washing (at least the internal one) may well not be necessary. If you really feel uncomfortable, you can rinse the nib under the tap or in a bowl, but keep in mind that the frenzy of cleaning (often with inappropriate materials or methods) is one of the most common causes of damage to the fountain pens.
The second point to keep in mind is that it is one thing to wash a pen for a change of ink or to store it, another to soak it to remedy a deposit. We will concentrate on the first case, for the second we refer to the page on the cleaning of the feeding system. Normally for the washing it’s right to usne only water to ambient temperature, and it is absolutely not necessary to resort to cleansers, that they serve only in particular cases. Especially do no use, as is sometimes done, solvents such as alcohol, which can damage the material. The variables are usually:
- the soak time,
- The temperature of the water,
- any detergents to be used.
The soak time is the most important of the three variables and depends on the situation. If the pen has remained unused and you have to remedy a deposit or a clogging is usually very long, in fact the ink, especially when it dries and remains in that state for a long time, is not easily soluble. In this case, however, more than maintenance, it is a question of restoration, and as mentioned for these issues, please refer to the page on the cleaning of the feeding system.
If instead you simply want to do a little more thorough washing, you can just soak until the pen no longer disperses ink in the water. In general it is not necessary to immerse the entire pen, just the tip, or, in case it is easily removable, as for a pen with cartridge filler, the entire section. Once submerged it is advisable to change the water periodically, let’s say a couple of times a day. Again, it is not advisable to get caught up in the frenzy and drain the aqueduct by changing the water as soon as you notice a little diffusion of ink. The presence of already dissolved ink does not significantly change the speed of dissolution of the missing one, certainly not enough to make up for the time lost in removing and replacing the water.
You can still speed up some phases by using the appropriate detergent, but still keep in mind that for a complete and thorough cleaning you must give time to the residual ink contained in the feeder to dissolve, and for simple diffusion this time can be very long, so in case of such needs you can think of using a specific equipment such as the washing machine invented for fun by the technical department of the FountainPen. it forum.
As far as the water temperature is concerned, the recommended temperature is the ambient one, but even if you use lukewarm water (up to 30 – 40 °C) you should not have any problems of deformation with the various materials. However, it remains to be considered that, unless you have a thermostated thermal tank, even if initially warm, the water will inevitably tend to reach room temperature in a relatively short time. For this reason, we recommend the use of water at room temperature in all those cases in which the pen must be soaked for periods of time longer than ten minutes.
The most controversial point is still the question of which detergents, if any, should be used. To some people it seems impossible to get a real cleaning if you do not add some kind of detergent to the washing. However, it should be clear in mind that surfactants generally serve to remove fats, and the fountain pen ink is not made of fats. In fact, fountain pen inks are normally solutions, which means that their pigments are “soluble” in water. They may not be as soluble, or more so, in soap, alcohol, bleach or ammonia, all of which may be aggressive on the pen material.
Knowing the type of plastic resin of your fountain pen you can look (for example on the net) for a table of compatibility of the material with other substances, and try to use them. But for routine maintenance there is no scientific evidence of greater cleaning with the use of detergents of various kinds, so the use of water alone is still the safest option and can at most (if really a detergent can be more effective) take a little more time.
Another device motivated by more psychological than real reasons is the use of distilled water, dictated by qualms about calcareous deposits for the evaporation of water once the washing is finished. A quick calculation on the probable and expected calcareous deposit, shows that to deposit one gram of calcium carbonate you need numbers in the order of 30000 drying and evaporation cycles, even with very limy water.
Riverside to ban washing, bathing, playing in downtown fountains – Press Enterprise
Riverside is poised to ban wading, splashing, shaving, bathing, washing clothes and brushing one’s teeth in the city’s downtown-mall fountains.
City officials say people are increasingly using the decorative water features for those purposes, which poses a health threat because the fountains weren’t intended for human contact.
They say the prohibition will apply evenly to everyone who engages in such forbidden activities, whether they are homeless persons, mall customers or frolicking children.
“It’s not aimed at any one population,” Kris Martinez, the city’s public works director, said. “It’s just aimed at people using the fountains for things that they shouldn’t be.”
An advocate for the welfare of those who do not have homes, however, said he doubts the driving force behind the ban is concern about children splashing in the water.

The Riverside City Council is considering an ordinance to prohibit wading, bathing, swimming, shaving or washing clothes in the three fountains on the downtown pedestrian mall. (Photo by Terry Pierson, The Press-Enterprise/SCNG)
“It sounds like it is prompted by problems with homeless people doing those things,” said Pastor Kent Tuohino, whose Trinity Lutheran Church in the city provides meals for the homeless twice a week.
“Certainly, I can understand the concern and don’t have an objection to that prohibition,” Tuohino said.
Homeless need more services, some say
But he said the trend of increased use of the fountains indicates another problem.
“To me, that points to a general need for more sanitation facilities for homeless people to use in the city,” Tuohino said.
Rusty Bailey, Riverside’s former mayor and now CEO of Path of Life Ministries, which provides services for homeless people, said there are some places in the city for people to take care of personal hygiene needs and more are coming.
On Jan. 12, the Riverside City Council unanimously approved, without discussion, an amendment to an existing ordinance prohibiting playing, wading and performing personal hygiene tasks in fountains. The ordinance addresses conduct on public property.
The council is scheduled to consider adopting the measure Tuesday, Jan. 26.
The fountains were intended to be decorative art, a city report stated, and not to be interactive water features.
“They are filled with ordinary tap water and cleaned three times a week by a pool cleaning company,” the report stated.
Yet, the report said, there have been “numerous incidents of people washing clothes, brushing their teeth and shaving,” as well as reports of swimming and splashing in the water.
Such activities are “disruptive” to nearby restaurants and other businesses, the report said, and there is a risk of spreading disease.
The Riverside Downtown Partnership, which represents about 900 businesses, sent a letter of support for the measure to the city Jan. 5.
Fountains are not swimming pools
Janice Penner, executive director, said members on many occasions have noticed the fountains being used for inappropriate purposes and have had concerns about that for several years.
“We see children playing in the pools. We see dogs drinking out of the pools,” Penner said in a phone interview.
“Those decorative fountains are not swimming pools,” she said, adding that fountain water is not filtered like pool water.
Penner said the focus of her group’s concern is three fountains: one next to Riverside City Hall, another near the Cesar E. Chavez Memorial, and a third near the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa.
Martinez said signs will be posted at each water feature to make people aware of the prohibition, if the council adopts it.
Once signs are up, she said, police officers will have “the ability to say, ‘Hey, you’re in violation. You can’t swim in the fountain. Move along.’”
Office Ryan Railsback, a Riverside Police Department spokesman, said a violation would be an infraction and a violator could be cited.
Officers as a general rule would ask a person to stop using a fountain for a prohibited purpose and issue a citation if they refused to comply, Railsback said.
If there were a continual problem, a repeat offender potentially could be prosecuted for a misdemeanor, he said,
“Generally, we’re going to write them a ticket,” Railsback said.
More showers set for homeless
Bailey, the former mayor, said he understands why people are using the fountains for personal hygiene. But he said there are better options.
Shelters run by Path of Life Ministries and the Salvation Army provide showers, Bailey said.
And he said his nonprofit group is partnering with First Congregational Church and The Shower of Hope to launch a mobile shower program at the downtown house of worship.
Sandra Soares, program coordinator for First Congregational’s Project Food program that serve hot meals for people in need, said the new service — featuring a truck with three shower stalls — is going to be offered from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Thursday.
The program is set to debut Thursday, Jan. 28, Soares said, unless there is heavy rain. If there is, the rollout may be moved back a week, she said.
Soares said people who drop by to take a shower will be given a bag with body wash/shampoo, a shaving razor, a toothbrush and toothpaste, along with socks and underwear.
“It just seems like the right thing to do, to give people five minutes of dignity to clean themselves up,” she said.
Bailey said he urges homeless people to take advantage of opportunities like those.
“It’s more dignified,” he said. “It’s a healthier, safer option.”
Washing machine irrigates backyard fountain
Standing in her Oakland garden, Andrea Hurd listens to the first house finch of the year declare his territory in the single big tree. She’s designed habitat for him and other birds here, but he’s not what she’s talking about.
“My big push as a designer is to find that sweet spot between art and ecology,” she said. “That’s when the garden sings. My clients always comment on how the space makes them feel. They might not know why, but that’s it.”
Hurd’s Mariposa Gardening & Design company will have a display garden in the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show in March. The core of her model is assembled and running in her backyard right now.
She’s named it a “living fountain.” It’s a hanging garden of sorts, in galvanized tubs: two tiers of horticultural horsetails, yellow-striped rushes, sweet flag, lobelia and scarlet monkey flower presided over by tall papyrus, nodding imperiously in the breeze.
On one end of the big base trough, a musical sculpture comprising a C-shaped copper pipe, a pale terra-cotta base and a bowl that looks like a huge rust-finished wok spills water into the tub holding the upper story of plants. From there it overflows into the base, and from there?
“We use it to irrigate this part of the garden,” Hurd said, pointing out the slope downhill from the fountain. “We’re going to add more riparian plants – water lovers – and I’m going to build a willow-stake fence to replace this one that’s falling down.”
In such a wet spot, as along a creekside where they generally grow, willow branches that are just stuck into the ground can be relied upon to root and grow. What you get is a fence that can be maintained with pruning shears, never needs painting, won’t fall over and will furnish branches for art and fun, and twigs to make willow water.
(Willow water: Pinch a handful of new twig ends from any old willow. Moosh them up in a cup or so of water and put cuttings of whatever plant you want to reproduce into this solution. We use it – twigs and all – in whatever jar is handy. Use it immediately; it doesn’t keep well. It is either a granny trick or an old wives’ tale – assuming there’s a difference – and it’s free. Willows have lots of rooting hormones; we’ve seen them sprout great knots of roots in midair when a stream of water played on them.)
Water approaches the copper “C” piped from a buried cistern – a barrel with a sump pump. There’s a lid; when we visited, it was taken off to show the works. That water comes from the washing machine of Hurd’s next-door neighbor, Annie Leonard.
The living fountain system does more than move water around; it cleans it. It’s a very simple graywater filtration system that wastes no precious garden space on ugly machinery. The first level is a terra cotta pipe filled with sand. The most active filters are the roots of those plants in the tiered hanging gardens. (Hurd claims no technology so far can match the filtration strength of certain plant roots.) She’ll have water emerging from the planters tested to see if it’s legally clean enough for irrigating vegetables.
“Clients have begun asking me for graywater systems,” she said. “The living fountain is a feature I can add into overall garden installations.” The system is compact enough for an urban yard: “It can do everything it needs to do in a small space.”
Besides the fountain, Hurd’s garden-show exhibit will feature permaculture edible plantings, a songbird garden and a wildflower meadow. She’s using salvaged plant containers, locally quarried stone and benches made from recycled wood. “I’m pulling out all the stops in terms of ecological design,” she jokes.
Canadian stoneworker John Shaw-Rimmington will also build a dry-stacked stone wall for the exhibit.
Her own backyard garden, shared with neighbor Leonard, is a work in progress. Hurd plans to plant a living fence of willows and add native shrubs like dogwood, toyon, serviceberry and snowberry, the fruit of which will attract songbirds. The front space, recently re-landscaped, showcases a butterfly garden on Hurd’s side, succulents and ginger on Leonard’s, and more Mallorcan-inspired stonework.
In another dry winter, water-conserving designs are gaining appeal.
“I’ve been designing and installing ecological gardens for almost 20 years,” Hurd said. “I make pretty gardens and sneak in the natives and ecological concepts. Now, suddenly, it’s a selling point, and I’m an expert.”
Bradley Hand Wash Fountains Hand Washing Stations
Handwash fountain technology offer many advantages over traditional sinks. Sinks, to begin with take up too much space. A lavatory can only service one person comfortably at a time, so accommodating multiple employees means adding multiple sinks. However, a fountain designed to accommodate multiple users limits the actual number of fixtures you need to install and thus make much more efficient use of floor and wall space.
Lavatories also notoriously waste water. People forget to turn off the faucet, and companies pay the bill. Hand washing units are different. Various flow controls are built into their design to ensure that only enough water is spent to wash the hands, not the floor, and not your money down the drain.
Many different models are available that feature various material builds, sizes, numbers of founts, and modes of operations.
Foot Control Hand washing Stations

90,000 A singing fountain appeared in the village of Sady Pridonya
The Sady Pridonya company continues to improve the village, where its main agricultural and industrial forces are located. Another unusual fountain has appeared in the village of Sady Pridonya. Its installation was initiated by the Sady Pridonya company, the press service reported.
“The object is serious,” says Dmitry Shalunov, head of the department for capital construction and operation of facilities at Sady Pridonya.”This is a whole complex in which water, light and music interact at the same time.”
It took 2 months for the construction and installation of a light and music fountain, the jets of which rise up one and a half meters. The hydraulic structure is made of red granite, which has a number of advantages – it tolerates high temperatures well, does not lose its strength and color when exposed to direct ultraviolet rays. The unique light and music fireworks will become a bright culmination of the fountain complex.Each water column will shine in different colors thanks to 16 powerful RGB LED lights. And all this to the beat of the music. The repertoire of musical accompaniment will delight you with a variety: from famous compositions of classical music to melodies from your favorite Russian films. At the moment, experts are testing the hardware and software module of the fountain – controllers, software for playing melodies. In the future, the playlist can be freely edited.
The construction of a new fountain was implemented by the Sady Pridonya company as part of a social program.The company has been working in this important direction for many years. During this time, good roads have appeared in the village, a modern hotel and restaurant complex, a family park with a fountain, a temple, playgrounds, housing for employees.
With the appearance of another fountain, the village has found a new point of attraction not only for local residents, but also for numerous guests and tourists coming from different parts of Russia.

Singing fountains in the Olympic Park
One of the most beautiful places in the city of Sochi is the fountain in the Olympic Park called “The Cup of the Olympic Fire”.Many call it the “Waters of the Olympic Plaza”. The fountain was built to open and close the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi. After the Olympic Games in Sochi ended, the fountain became a legacy of the last Olympics and is rightfully considered a landmark in Sochi.
The Singing Fountain in the Olympic Park was built in the form of a sculpture “Firebird”, with a “fiery crest and huge wings.” A mythological bird from our folk tales. She has a long swan neck and fiery wings that hug the chalice.The bowl has a diameter of 75 meters. Giant in size, 264 individually illuminated fountains.
The fountain is equipped with cannons that are capable of launching jets of water to a height of 70 meters. Less weak cannons to a height of 30 meters. There are a total of 252 such cannons, of which 6 are hyperguns and 246 are miniguns. The fountain is controlled by a control panel that combines all the functions of the fountain into one whole.
Singing Fountains in the Olympic Park
At night, the park becomes truly fabulous, as the spray of the singing fountains in the Olympic Park turns into fireworks, which are created using LEDs.Small twinkling stars appear on the surface of the water. To enhance the mystery and enigma of the performance, fog is blown over the surface of the fountain.
The music that sounds in this park belongs to classical and modern composers of Russia. These include: Tchaikovsky, Khachaturian, Shostakovich and many others. Various operas and ballets are played. The most famous are: The Nutcracker, Eugene Onegin, Swan Lake, Ruslan and Lyudmila and others.

Incredible light and music fountains in St. Petersburg
1.Fountain complex on Moskovskaya square
Initially, there was no complex here, despite the fact that a new center of Leningrad was supposed to be built on Moskovskaya Square. It was opened with fanfare in 2006 in the presence of the governor. It turned out to be one of the largest fountain complexes among those located outside of Peterhof.
In addition to the bowls, there are several string colonnades. In the evening, this spectacle is especially mesmerizing: for 20 minutes, the spaces of the square are filled with the sound of classical compositions, and the jets of the fountain, as if waltzing, rise to the sky with varying intensity, being colored by the reflections of multi-colored illumination.

2. Singing fountains near Finland Station
The light and music fountain at the Finland Station on Lenin Square recently celebrated its tenth anniversary. This is one of the two city dancing fountains in St. Petersburg. The complex is smaller than the fountain on Moscow Square, but the light and music show is practically the same. The jets of water dance to the classics, the doubts of Andrey Petrov, and sometimes accompanied by hits from the 60s.The show can be viewed at 12:00, 21:40 on weekdays and at 12:00, 20:00, 21:00 and 21:40 on weekends and holidays.

3. Light and music fountain in Peterhof
There are no such fountains anywhere. The fountain was opened in the summer of 2017 on the Trade Square of Peterhof. The spring appeared in the same place where a bowl with a drinking fountain stood in the middle of the 19th century. They did not re-create the landmark according to the historical project: Vodokanal needed to draw water from the other side of the avenue.However, they managed to execute a more unusual project: the source is able to project images directly on the water. The light and music fountain is equipped with a laser projector and can work even as a training complex. According to the city administration, for example, it can broadcast lectures accompanied by synchronized dynamic decorations of water, light and music. Any image can be projected onto its water screen.

4.Singing Fountain “Peace to Children”
One of the youngest singing fountains in the city was installed in the Grand Canyon. It is a sculptural composition of bronze children circling in a round dance. Jets of water and monuments “dance” to popular children’s music from dozens of countries around the world. The author of the “singing source” was the sculptor Konstantin Garapach. According to the idea, this “Peace for Children” fountain symbolizes the friendship of all the children of the planet, and the opening is timed to coincide with the International Day of Peace.

Sights of Kronstadt
Singing in Kronstadt is called the light and music fountain, which is located on the territory of the park, which is near Gostiny Dvor.The fountain was opened during the celebrations marking the 300th anniversary of the city.
In general, the structure is a rectangular-shaped pool lined with granite tiles with an area of 22 * 10 m, inside which there is a bowl, whose architectural appearance resembles the outlines of the Kronshlot fort.
Equipped with special acoustics and a light-color illumination system, the fountain works in a certain sequence, rhythmically changing the pattern of the water mirror.
A system of valves with electromagnetic control in combination with different intervals of pressure of jet streams, the height of which reaches and even exceeds three tens of meters, provides the possibility of dynamic changes in the water pattern in accordance with the compositional features of a given musical piece.
In the evening, with the onset of darkness, the fountain is illuminated by the colored rays of special projectors, which gives the fountain composition an even more grandiose effect.
Rhythmic pulsation of colored lights and jets of various heights, sounds of wonderful music floating above the water – all this creates a peaceful mood among visitors, tunes people to a lyrical mood.
