In feng shui, water is an important element needed to generate qi (energy). feng shui expert joey yap tells us six important facts about water sources in the home:
1) Water flowing or found on the left side of the property is considered a desirable formation, both for the wealth and prosperity of the house.

2) Make sure the water is clean, as that denotes vitality and dynamism. qi cannot be harnessed properly in dirty water, and these areas will invite vermin, ill health, and insects.
3) yin and yang should be at the back and front of the house, respectively; this is why water in the back of the house is considered bad feng shui. However, “if there is enough distance between the water feature and the house, or if it is located in a suitable location based on the san yuan xuan kong principle with a mountain nearby, you don’t have to worry,” says Joey.
4) Do you want to ensure prosperity and financial security? watch for regions with sentimental water, which is water that hugs your property without crossing directly in front of or through it.
5) Another highly auspicious water formation is the Nine Curved Water (九曲水), which meanders in nine curves as you drive towards your home. denotes wealth qi that accumulates and accumulates over the years.
6) Although natural water formations are the best form of water feng shui, roads are a viable (albeit not as efficient) alternative in the urban landscape we live in today. a fast highway passing by your house is considered merciless water (無情水), and a t-junction pointing directly at your front door generates sha qi (煞氣).
