Rainwater, distilled water or softened water are recommended for filling and topping up the Belfonte.
Topping up is rarely required more frequently than once per week.

Ordinary tap water may be used, but over quite a short period of time, especially if the water is hard, this may lead to substantial deposits of scale on the pump and bowl, which then should be cleaned.

Dust and other air-borne matter will eventually clog the pump's filters. In the short term this will merely slow down the flow of water, but eventually the pump's filters must be cleaned. How often this should be done depends on circumstances, rarely more frequently than once per month.
