Mineral build up is residue that can be avoided with frequent cleaning and new water.

We recommend early fall before freezing to:

1. Drain all water.

2. Clean your concrete well.

3. Repair damages such as small chips, voids..

4. Apply 2 coats of 'quality concrete sealer' (recommended for your application)

5. Place burlap inside all bowls, shells, or anywhere water may collect. The expansion and contraction freeze and thaw cycles could cause damage if water, snow or ice is left present in bowl.

6. Cover with a clean tarp and secure accordingly.
