Artistic and engineering wonders, as well as sources for physical and spiritual nourishment, fountains have delighted people and animals for centuries. Often incorporating the use of various metals and masonry in direct and ongoing contact with water, the successful conservation of historic and modern fountains requires the understanding of complex materials issues, implementation of appropriate water treatment, adjustment of flow and spray settings, and treatment of sculptural and architectural elements. Ongoing maintenance is vital to the long-term success of any functional fountain.
