Why should I purchase an indoor waterfall?

An interior water feature will enhance the look and feel of your home or office, providing mental and physical health benefits in a way that is aesthetically pleasing. The sound of cascading water soothes and relaxes, minimizing the effects of stress and masking unpleasant background noise. An indoor water feature provides elegance as a functional piece of art, complementing a wide range of decors. Interior water features also provide physical health benefits by way of negative ions; invisible electrically charged particles that have the capacity to remove dust, pollen and other airborne particles from the air making it easier to breath and giving us a sense of well being.

Indoor waterfalls are also natural humidifiers, helping to keep the relative humidity in our rooms at optimum levels which is not only good for our furniture, but also for our skin and hair.  For more information on negative ions and other health benefits, please click here.

How does an indoor water feature work?

Interior water features work as self-contained, stand-alone decorative items - there is no need to hook them up to a water line or install a drain.. You only need to add water and plug them in. Each unit features a pump mechanism that transports water from the base of the water feature to the top, where it is released and returns to the basin by way of gravity. Indoor waterfalls maintain optimum efficiency if they are left running constantly to keep the pump mechanism flowing smoothly. It is important that the submersible pump and light are always covered with water to prevent overheating

The water flow pump is completely adjustable in accordance with your preferences. The cascading water is both aesthetically pleasing and beneficial to your health - please visit our Benefits section for more information.

How much maintenance is required for an interior water feature?

Waterfalls and other home water features do not need much by way of upkeep. After the initial set-up, only occasional cleaning is required. It is important to maintain a proper water level to ensure the functionality of the water feature's pump and to keep submerged lights cool.

Water conditioners and other care products are recommended to prevent the growth of algae and the build-up of mineral deposits. For more detailed information about maintaining the beauty and functionality of your waterfall, please visit our Ask The Experts page .

Should I use distilled or tap water?

Using distilled or reverse osmosis water is highly recommended. Over time, your fountain may develop mineral deposits from hard tap water that may affect the pump's performance.

Water treatments will help maintain your fountain between cleanings. There are several different treatments that we recommend. Our experts will assist you in choosing the proper products for your water feature at the time of purchase.

What should I do about a noisy pump ?

A noisy pump usually indicates that there is a problem with the water levels. Pumps make loud gurgling noises when they suck up a mixture of air and water, which can cause the pump to overheat and stop working. Check to make sure the the pump is fully submerged, and that the waterfall's water is at the level outlined in the product's instructions. Refill as necessary. It may take a day or two for the bubbles to clear out of the waterline.

If the pump makes a vibrating sound, it may be clogged with debris. Make sure there are no foreign objects in the water, and try cleaning the pump according to the directions found in your product guide. Change the water if there is debris in the basin to avoid a reoccurance.

Alternatively, the pump may be contacting the basin of the waterfall as it operates. Placing a sponge between the pump and the basin will eliminate the noise and will not affect the pump's operation.

How do I replace my waterfall's pump?

You may purchase replacement parts for all of our products online, or call us to have a part shipped to you. If you purchased your waterfall from another company, we may still be able to find a replacement part. Please email us at info@tropicsnorthstudios.com or call us toll-free at 1-800-461-0720.

How can I prolong the pump's life? Can I perform repairs on it?

Pumps should work properly for a long period of time if routine maintenance is performed and water levels kept at the proper level. If the pump on your indoor or outdoor water feature stops working, check to make sure it is fully submersed, and that debris has not clogged it. You should never attempt to perform repairs on the pump. Doing so risks electrical shock and voids your warranty. Please contact us if you need repairs or a replacement.

Do foggers or other accessories require any maintenance or special care?

Like interior waterfalls, foggers and other accessories require only minimal maintenance and routine cleaning to perform effectively. Clean water and a soft cloth should keep foggers and accessories clean. Foggers should run for no more than eight hours to avoid burn-out. Other accessories do not require any maintenance or special care, unless indicated in the manufacturer's instructions.

What's the difference between indoor and outdoor waterfalls?

There are many differences - each interior water feature is specially-designed for indoor use only. Outdoor water features should never be used inside. These waterfalls have modified parts that are made to withstand the elements and have certain electrical components that should only be used outdoors. Indoor waterfalls lack these components, and may pose a fire hazard.

Finishes vary between outdoor and interior waterfalls to optimize the water feature's lifespan. Interior water features will deteriorate rapidly if placed outdoors. Oxidation and other signs of aging will set in much faster.

Outdoor waterfalls also pose a hazard if placed indoors because most are manufactured to allow for a dramatic splashing effect. While this is safe for outdoor areas, it can create a hazard indoors.

In the description for each fountain, you will see a line that says either "Indoors Only", "Outdoors Only", or "Indoors/Outdoors".  Failure to follow these guidelines can result in the damage cited above.
