Exactly.. that's why really cheap Champagne will work so well. Mosquitoes will be too drunk to lay larvae, and the hipster sparrows that hang around will think anything else are hors d'oeuvres. The bubbles will help keep the pH in check and the alcohol will help sanitize. Sounds like a win-win to me.Believe me, the birds will not care one bit about what you put into that fountain.
No but I've considered it. I've had it in my massive list of "projects that would be fun to do" making a few of those jumping fountains. You know, the ones that shoot a clean stream of water into the next one with no splashing? And at night you can have cool lighting effects? Anyway I found some instructions on how to DIY, since commercial ones are super expensive, but the person who wrote it gave up because they used sponges to help straighten the water to get the straight stream and they would constantly plug up with growth. So I figured if I made jumping fountains I'd put a little Stenner or similar to keep the water chlorinated and keep the growth buildup from happening on the sponges.Has anyone ever tried something like this? O
Hey now! Nothing weird about it. Except maybe the whole stick 6 barely clothed people side-by-side so close you're probably gonna touch, that is a bit weird if you think about it...moreso than the water care at least!I wonder if you should be using a hot tub analogy instead. They do weird stuff in that forum.. I stay away from it because its a different cult.
I tried the chlorine route in my fountain before I knew about the FC/CYA ratio. I cratered two pumpsThey added hydrogen peroxide to it to prevent algae and mosquitoes.
