Outlined below are a few of the key benefits of a water fountain.
1. Helps with Stress Relief While Inducing Relaxation
With today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy for one to get stressed over even the simplest of things. One of the reasons why is because we all wish to have a better lifestyle, a factor that contributes greatly to stress and depression.
While you may choose to use anti-depressants, a water fountain will come in handy in giving you natural relief from the same.
You can have the fountain in the bedroom, living room, the garden, or even the patio for convenience. The soothing sounds of dripping and running water help calm the nerves and brain, thus giving you a sense of relaxation.
As an added advantage, most fountains in the market today come with variable speed pumps enabling you to control the flow of water.
2. It Can Be Used for Both Indoor and Outdoor Décor
Having a water feature in or outside the house, and especially the water fountain adds instant beauty to the surrounding environment. Whether looking to invest in a garden, tabletop or wall-mounted water fountain, you can be assured of improved beauty and aesthetics to the surroundings.
Many people use these water features as a centerpiece for their art in home décor and design. That said, you can use a water fountain for decoration purposes in the house.
3. It’s A Natural Humidifier
Water fountains help add moisture to the environment/room. You, therefore, don’t need to run the humidifier for as long as the water feature is running. The other good thing with the water fountain is that you get to enjoy the soothing sounds of running water, something you wouldn’t get with mechanical humidifiers.
If you love having plants in your living room, the water feature will come in handy in promoting its health. Plants love moisture in the air – the water feature will give them more than that.
4. Negative Ions
You could also use the water fountain to purify indoor air. The water fountain works by releasing negative ions into the air. These ions are known to attract/trap dust and other forms of air pollution leaving you with cleaner air. Breathing in the negative ions is in itself, refreshing.
With lots of gadgets and appliances emitting positively charged ions into the air, having a water fountain in the house will help purify the air even farther, hence fewer chances of getting ill or allergic reactions. A tabletop water fountain costs less than $100, thus easily affordable to all.
5. A Source of Drinking Water for Pets
Your pets, too, will thank you for the water feature. Your dog, cat, or even bird will be happier drinking from the running water. You, however, should make sure only safe water is used in the fountain. This means using clean water and avoiding chemicals that would otherwise harm pets and young children as well. Consider using non-toxic algae removal enzymes in the water feature to avoid nasty surprises.
