Our upright Bamboo water spout is the one that you would see in the traditional Japanese water basin arrangement.
We have 3 sizes on offer and the vertical column stands either 40cm, 50cm high or 70cm high. In each case, the water spout extends around 30 cm from the column.
The spouts have an attached metal spike for stability, in addition a generous length of 13 mm ID transparent hosepipe to fit a small submersible water pump. These products are hand made from natural bamboo, so there will be variations in both size and colour between individual pieces. Bamboo products may have or form splits as the bamboo weathers down, this is inevitable. However due to the design these splits won’t affect the functionality.
We advise the 40cm spout with the following basins: 30cm Tetsu, 45cm Iwa, 30-40cm kaliwatu, 30cm Kiku & 30cm Zeni bachi.
We advise the 50cm spout with the following basins: 45cm Tetsu, 60cm Iwa, 50-60cm kaliwatu, 45cm Kiku, 45cm Zeni, Teppatsugata & 30cm Natsume bachi. Traditionally the shallow bachi compliment a horizontal spout but if you do not have the space for a long horizontal spout an upright 50cm spout would also work.
We advise the 70cm spout with the following basins: 45cm Natsume bachi.
Complete the water basin arrangement with a bamboo water spout
For an Oriental water arrangement we suggest that customers also get a Japanese water basin, bamboo water ladle & rest, kneeling stones and a water feature kit. For help setting up your bamboo spout please see our how to..set up an upright bamboo spout page.
Please note that your bamboo spout will split. This is the nature of this material and there is nothing that we can do to prevent this from happening. Whilst the splits may look unsightly they will not affect the structural integrity nor the operation of the water basin arrangement.
