Hard water deposits cause problems on fountains and water features. White scale deposits form on the edges of water fountains when evaporation of hard water occurs. Hard water is water that contains calcium, some water supplies contain more calcium than others. White Scale or lime/calcium deposits look like crusty layers of hard white deposits that form in a ring around the water line of your fountain.
This hard water scale can quickly build-up in hard water areas. This hard layer can cause impellors to jam and pumps to overheat and seize. Build-up inside pipework and nozzles will reduce the proper flow of cooling water circulation through the pump again a potential cause of damage to the water pump.

Because of massive evaporation experienced by most fountains and water features. It is best to drain every 2-3 months, refill with fresh water and re-apply Hydra Sequestro 695.
