I'm new to the forums here, so I apologize if I don't follow the accepted procedures just yet. I posted this in the technical questions section as well, but after doing so it seemed like the wrong place, so I'm reposting here. I'm looking for some help with an indoor fountain at my building, it has become a maintenance nightmare. 

The problems have ranged from red/orange algae when untreated, requiring water changes (3500 gallons) and cleaning every other month or so, to a water scale build up when treated with bromine.  The water scale was an issue when untreated as well, but the frequent water changes allowed for the stone to be cleaned and treated more frequently, making it less of an issue. 

I run a pool filter every month to keep the water as clean as possible and use stone sealers to keep as much scale from sticking to the stone as possible, but nothing seems to change anything enough to attribute it to one thing or another.  I have tried lowering the pH, tried calcium hardness reducers, but just seems like more work for no gain.
