BAMBOO PRODUCTS

Shishi Odoshi

Water is a vital component in the Japanese Garden. The Shishi Odoshi or literally "Deer Scare" was originally used to startle the deer that fed upon the rice shoots in the rice paddies. The Water Hammer is now a common element in many Japanese gardens.

Upon entering, one takes a drink from the basin, symbolizing internal purification; washes the hands, symbolizing external purification. The sound of the clack of bamboo penetrates the garden and fades. We are reminded that time is moving on.

In time - depending upon the climatic or environmental conditions to which it is exposed - bamboo will naturally crack. There can be no guarantee against such cracking. Our bamboo pieces are made from Arundinaria amablis and Phallostachys pubescens (Moso) - the most select of the quality bamboos.

We recommend periodic sanding and recoating of the bamboo finish for longer lasting function of this product. Climate conditions will vary the finish durability. Four season climates have the greatest wear factor. For north Ameriican eastern climates we recommend removal from the pond during winter months.

 Bamboo Water Return Feature


Over the past 15 years we have found this item to be a life saver on pond renovations.
We also use them in applications where the existing waterfall of the pond is so improperly built, that an alternative to rebuilding is a must.
Size used would be dependent on the method of water returned to the pond - under pressure or gravity fed.
Each unit is "handmade" so length and diameters vary.
Finished with 4 coats of exterior varathane with space void between O.D. of pipe and I.D. of bamboo filled with black expanding foam.
Exit tip of bamboo coated with black silicone for longevity.

If you are supplying this water feature with a pipe line smaller than 2", simply attach a reducer bushing to the plumbing. The 2" pipe size is intentional. It provides for aesthetically pleasing flow rates from 200 to 2,000 GPH. For flow rates greater than 2,000 GPH, choose the BBWR-3
