Make Your Water Fountain Flow With Silicone. Trick You Will Want to Do
I have a smaller fountain in my back yard and was told by a salesman the trick to getting the water to flow smoothly. You take clear silicone and put a little dab where the water flows down.
Silicone at each place where the water flows down.
Let harden and then fill with water.
A smooth flow.

William on May 18, 2017It not the pecking or eating the caulk that is the problem. It's the leaching of the chemicals from the caulk as water flows over it. Bluebirds, finches, and hummingbirds are highly sensitive to chemicals. Butterflies can be affected looking for a drink. Pet shops sell food safe silicone caulk. Mainly for fish tank repair because of the chemicals in regular silicone caulk. Parrots and parakeets are extremely sensitive to chemicals. Even off gassing fumes can harm them.
