It depends on the strength of the chlorine. People drink tap water with clorine in it and we use this water to water our lawns and plants. If you have too much chlorine in the fountain water then yes, it will harm the hosta foliage. I have a huge hosta outside my back door and it's 10 feet wide by 4 feet high and I have no idea why it's so big. It's beautiful though. I NEVER use cold water on most of my plants, but tepid water right out of the tap. Of course I can't do the rockery garden this way and will have to use the sprinkler on the vast majority of my plants. I only use the other method on planted pots, the flowers by the walkway and our rose garden.

What are ways in which aphids damage plants?

Compromise foliage, encourage ants, introduce pathogens, remove sap, and welcome fungi are ways in which aphids damage plants.Specifically, the insect in question (Aphidoideasuperfamily) breaks through foliage in order to access life-sustaining, nutrient-rich phloem and xylem sap. It excretes honeydew, which appeals to ants committed to sugar-rich -- as opposed to protein-rich -- diets and to black sooty mold. It leaves openings which remain permanent because of the sheaths which an aphid piercing mouthpart uses to break into foliage.

How can you neutralize chlorine from the pool water on fabric such as bathing suits and lawn furniture?

Most often swimsuit damage (like hair and skin damage) is caused by improperly chlorinated pool water. If there is too little chlorine in the water you get chloramines (or combined- chlorines) forming - and these are the things which have a strong chlorine odor and are the casue of pretty much everything chlorine gets the blame for. If the water is shocked these combined chlorines will be removed. If the water is kept properly chlorinated and shocked as required I don't think you will see the fabric damage. A saline system in fact shocks the water constantly and you will rarely find combined-chlorine in a pool using the salt water system as the means of purification.

Keeping Your Water Fountain Looking and Operating at its Best?

Outdoor water fountains have the ability of creating atmospheres when used around your home. Whether you are searching for ways of adding elegance, serenity or sophistication to your home and property then installing water fountains may be the answer. There are some maintenance requirements that are necessary in order to keep your water fountain looking and operating at its best. For areas where cold and harsh winter conditions are experienced, there is certain storing or securing methods that should be performed as well.Storing or Securing Your Water Fountain in Harsh Weather ConditionsPeople spend a great deal of time and money purchasing their water fountains that they use around their property to create specific atmospheres. In areas where the weather gets cold and snow or ice accumulation is possible, water fountains should be removed and stored inside if possible, or covered to prevent damage to their structure. Ice and snow build up has the potential to crack the cement structure of the fountain or get into the pump and water supply lines, causing them to break, stretch or sustain other damage, causing them to become non-functional. All water should be drained from the water fountain when you finish using this fixture for the season and prior to the cold weather season within your area. Simple things such as wrapping the fountain structure with a tarp can prevent damage to the water fountain. The tarps should be securely tied in place with rope or duct tape so that the tarp does not become loose during harsh weather or winds.Repairing Damage to the Structure of Your Water FountainIf your water fountain does happen to sustain cracks in its foundation, these may be able to be repaired without having to replace the entire fountain. The most common areas where this type of damage is noticed are mainly around the base or across the sides of the fountain. First, you must locate the cracks that are in your fountain. Not locating all of the cracks can cause further damage to take place.Second, use a clear sealant to fill in the cracked area. There are several varieties of sealant that can be used including a liquid concrete, clear silicone or outdoor strength epoxy that you can purchase through any hardware store or home improvement store in your area. Make sure that you read the instructions that are included by the manufacturer to get the best results.Make sure that the sealant is pushed down into the crack and smoothened out so that the repair is not noticeable and takes away from the appearance of your water fountain. You can use a small putty knife or plastic scraper to help with this process. Make sure that you use protect gear on your hands and over your clothing when using the sealant. Once your repair is complete just allow it to sit for the required setting time. If you need to paint your water fountain you can do so once the sealant has had an adequate time to harden.

Emergency eyewash stations, common in chemical labs and industrial buildings, are used for flushing chemicals or small particles out of your eyes. It is inadvisable to touch the eyes with your fingers, especially when particles have gotten in the eyes, as it will generally just rub the particles deeper and cause more damage. Instead, the eyes are held in the fountain while open to dilute the chemicals until they are no longer harmful.
