Water Gardens — Fountain

MY fountain is always slimy and I'm sick of constantly having to clean it out. What can I do?

 

THE best thing to do is to add an algaecide to the water. You can buy it in a liquid form or as a block that slowly dissolves. I'm not keen on them iin ponds because there is a risk of overdosing, but it's ideal for a fountain.
