The Olympic Flame Bowl fountain has been stopped for a week of prevention.

From August 22 to 28, the fountain will be flushed with a high-pressure device with the addition of algicides, the hydraulic guns will be aligned perpendicular to the axis, the backlight glasses will be replaced.

All the high-tech equipment that makes the Olympic fountain the brightest attraction in Sochi is hidden underground. Under the bowl, which holds 2 thousand cubic meters of water, there are fog generators, powerful pumps, a water treatment station, compressed air storage tanks.

The fountain will resume its work on August 28.
