If you would like to install a bird bath water fountain in your yard, you must know some important tips. First of all, the fountain will become useless in the winter, since the piping system will not be able to deal with the freezing water. Accordingly, once the cold times come, you would have to pump all the water out of the bird bath fountain in order not to damage the pipes. Second of all, the fountain must be made so it is comfortable for the birds to sit on it and bathe. It should be large enough to fit several birds and to allow them to drink in comfort. Don’t forget to keep the fountain running day and night in order to provide fresh water circulation for the birds.
Water fountain bird baths are a great addition to anyone’s yard or garden decor. They come in different designs and can be chosen in accordance with your style or the amount of money you are ready to spend on them. If you are planning to use the fountain mostly for bird’s drinking, you should go for simpler designs. The simpler the fountain, the easier it would be to clean and the less money it would cost you. However, don’t go for the cheapest specimens out there. The cheap fountain might not have a well designed piping system, which will eventually lead to breakdowns.
Bird bath with fountain is a great way to mix together two useful accessories. The birds will be happy with a fountain since the water is circulating and is kept fresh. At the same time you won’t have to bother with getting additional accessories for your yard. However, if you live in a cold climate you would have to buy heated birth baths or bird bath heater for the winter time, since the fountains can’t be heated up.
