Colour differences



Every single fountain is made by hand, so it happens from time to time that a fountain is not exactly the same color as seen on our website. Unfortunately, we have no influence on this and we do apologize. Each of our fountains are uniquely handcrafted. The fountains with patterns such as harlequin, galaxy and walnut are particularly affected by these irregularities.

  In the baking process, a fountain is not baked as a whole.

The ceramic mixture is poured into the appropriate hand crafted moulds for each tower , it is then allowed to dry naturally, after that a coating of ceramic glaze is applied and fired at high temperatures.

The base is produced in two steps. First the mixture is poured into a handmade moulds  and it is baked, in the second step the bases are sculpted by hand until the desired shape is achieved and then it is glazed and fired again.

Due to the double step the bases are fired at different temperatures than the towers.Because it is not possible to bake a fountain as a whole, sometimes color differences occour. These are due to the fact that the towers that are closer to the edge of the kiln get more heat in the oven and therefore appear a little brighter than the rest of the towers.

Once the fountain has been assembled as a whole, there may be a slight difference in color. We apologize for any inconvenience. You get a high quality product and a unique piece.

In addition to this, the fountain colour pigments are mixed by hand so small differences in colour may arise. We do not give refunds if the request is due to differences in colour.

Using filtered water can help to maintain the pump for maximum efficiency. Unfiltered, calcareous water can cause damage to the pump motor and limit years of use.

 

Limescale damages the pump

Proper care and cleaning can prevent this. Tap water is calcareous. Some zones are less exposed, others are more heavily loaded with lime. If you use hard water to start the fountain, sooner or later the pump will stop working because the spaces between the pump and the rotor are calcified. At this point, we expressly recommend the use of still water from the bottle or at least filtering the tap water beforehand. You can use vinegar or lemon to clean the pump and remove lime and other minerals. If the pump has stopped working, these tips will help to get the pump running again (for black pumps please contact support@miaustore.com for further tips).
