Request the electric company to conduct a search for buried power cables before you start digging for the retaining pool.

Naturally, waterproof cable must be used for safety reasons. Once the cable has been inserted, you can then seal the hole with silicone sealant.

    Finally, you are ready to put the retaining pool into the hole. The retaining pool for outdoor fountains should be a snug fit. The gaps left on the outside of the retaining pool will need to be filled in with dirt. You've made quite a bit of progress on your outdoor fountains so far.

Depending on the style of the outdoor fountains, different stones or river rocks may be used to disguise the pump. The wires for the pump will need to be buried to protect it from the elements.

    The main goal you have when you first put water in outdoor fountains is finding any possible leaks. The pump can be started if the water level remains constant. Of course, you will need to watch the pump to see if it works properly. The performance of outdoor fountains is also based on the proper placement of the water pump.

If outdoor fountains are properly cared for, they can last a lifetime, providing plenty enjoyment the whole time. Outdoor fountains also add style and value to your home or property.
