Tips to choosing a water feature

If you’ve decided it is time to add a water feature to your home or business, there are some considerations you need to be aware of before you purchase your water feature.

Although water features come in many different designs, materials and colours and you would think choosing one would be relatively easy, there are aspects like safety for example that you need to be aware of as well.

Depending on whether you are looking to install an indoor or outdoor water feature, Living Water Designs Gold Coast have some tips here for our readers on how to choose your perfect water feature.


When installing an indoor water feature you need to ensure:

  1. A water supply is within easy reach of the water feature.
  2. The power supply has been installed by a licensed electrician.
  3. The water feature complements the homes decore and is in proportion.
  4. The water is circulating to prevent bacteria forming or mosquitoes breeding.
  5. The water feature poses no drowning risk to small children.


For outdoor water features, ensure:

  1. A water supply is within easy reach of the water feature.
  2. The site for the water feature is level.
  3. The water feature is protected from leaf litter from trees.
  4. Measures are in place to protect any fish from predators.
  5. Measures are implemented to keep small children from drowning.
  6. Any electricity to the water feature is installed by a licensed electrician.
  7. The water feature is complementary and in proportion to its surroundings.
  8. The water should be circulating in ponds, fountains and waterfalls to deter mosquitoes from breeding.
  9. A water feature designed for indoor use is not used outside.
