Indoor Water Fountains Are Natural Humidifiers

Indoor water fountains are very beneficial to both humans and houseplants. They serve as natural humidifiers to provide the essential moisture to our indoor air.

Since most houseplants are tropical or subtropical, humidified air is crucial for their growth and development, especially those with thin leaves. 

The relaxing flowing water from a water fountain is very good for them because it increases the relative humidity.

When our homes are properly humidified not only do our plants grow and thrive, but we feel and look better and have a more positive outlook on life. 

Plus, our wooden furniture, floorboards, drywall and trim are prevented from cracking because of dry air.

Having a water fountain in your home or office will make your environment healthier and cleaner. The  water molecules that are produced by the cascading waterfall also trap the impurities in the air--eliminating dust and toxins, making it easier for you to breathe.

Soothing Sounds of Indoor Water Fountains

The persistent sound of water trickling down in a fountain creates white noise--a steady, unvarying, calming  background sound that blocks out undesirable  noises. This increases restfulness and leads to better health.

Decorative Accents

They come in many attractive designs to fit your taste and budget. Table-top models which are made to sit on tables are very affordable.  The free-standing models must be placed on the floor and the flat models are mounted on the wall.  They have electric pumps that spray water into a reservoir and recirculates it.

You don't have to spend a lot of money to add this stunning accent to your home. You can be creative and add beauty and elegance and bring the soothing sounds of falling water into your environment with a do-it-yourself kit.  With a kit every thing you need to make your own is included.  They are sold at garden centers and home improvement stores.

Something as simple as water and birdbath with a recirculating pump installed can serve as a fountain. Surround it by a grouping of moisture-loving plants and you will have a wonderful focal point that is beautiful and relaxing.

Whether on a tabletop or on a wall they bring a special ambiance to any room where they are placed.  The soothing water sounds will create a sense of calmness and relaxation


You must unplug the pump to periodically change the water and clean the inside of your fountain and pump to prevent algae and mineral deposits from forming.

With proper care and maintenance your indoor water fountain will perform at the optimal level, and you and your plants will get all the benefits it has to offer.
