Bamboo Fountain (Kakehi)


The Kakehi (Bamboo Fountain) is a waterspout consisting of a vertical bamboo pipe in which the internal part of each node (joint) has been bored out to accept a plastic hosepipe. At the head of the vertical bamboo pipe a "Komagshira" or scorched timber joint drilled out to accept the vertical and horizontal bamboo pipes, the komagashira timber top section is either square in section or round. The" Kakehi " has a number of uses, used to feed water into a stone water basin (Chozubachi) or to trickle water into the end of a Deer Scarer (Shishi-Odoshi). It can simply be used on its our as a water fountain to pour water onto a stream or pond and creates an interesting feature into any water garden setting or Koi pond. Our Kakehi are supplied ready to install into your garden complete with internal plastic hose, the outlet hole for the plastic hose in the vertical bamboo has not been bored out. The position for this hole has to be decided on each individual installation, and the depth the vertical pipe is set into the ground, we recommend a hole saw be used of about 1" dia, all cut ends and holes of the bamboo may be sealed with polyurethane varnish to prevent water ingress into the fibres which will cause surface discoloration.
