Keeping Fountains Free of Water Deposits

I have several indoor water fountains. It is not practical to use distilled water because I go through a couple gallons a day. Is there any way to keep these clean, free of water deposits, short of tearing them down and scrubbing them every week.. Thanks! Debby

You could try running the water through one of the filter pitchers that are available at Lowe's, Walmart etc. Their are several brands. Pur is one that comes to mind as I have that brand attached to my kitchen cold water faucet. Or if you use a dehumidifier in your house, the water collected there might be more pure than tap water.

Try adding some vinegar to your water each day. That works to clean the coffee pots when it's built up...so maybe some added to the water would PREVENT the build up...

Brita also has a faucet attachment that is good for 1000 gallons-yes, 1000. Compare to the cost of distilled.

I have 2 fountains that I use often and we have hard water also,so I use half water and half vinegar in mine and it keeps the scale and scum out.

I have a garden fauntain too, probably 50 gallons total. I had been dealing with the white build up too. Do you think I can use vinegar in mine and how much. The water splashes so, I need to replace some of the water evryday.

Thanks...
