What is included in the cleaning kit?

Your hydria cleaning kit includes a cleaning cloth, a brush, a spare filter and a drawstring bag to store cleaning tools.

How Often Should I Clean My Fountain?

Clean your hydria, including the water pump, at least once every month. To clean, drain your water pool and scrub the water pool and decorative tray thoroughly with warm water and mild detergent.

How to clean the pump

In addition, follow our video to remove the housing of your water pump to clean the inside using the supplied brush and remove any algae or mineral deposits. Rinse your fountain thoroughly until no soap bubbles remain. Don’t forget to run on high without your fountain head attached to remove any air bubbles prior to use.
