– The wood Rot?
Per the University of Massachusetts Amherst:
“Wood can be too wet to decay. Waterlogged wood will not allow oxygen in to support the growth of fungi. Marine pilings kept fully submerged may never rot.”‘
So long as the board is fully submerged constantly, rot will not happen. I know it is likely to decay over time, but not nearly as fast as everyone in my comments seems to think. I may be wrong! But building these features is what I enjoy, so if it falls apart I’ll build a new one. So far its been a Year with no sign of decay.
– Rock dampening noise instead of the board?
Yes! I did that, it dampened the noise and looked kinda cool, but it was still splashing out quite a bit. I left the wood strip instead.
– How do you clean it?
I made a video about that! Its pretty easy. Maintenance guide here: https://youtu.be/FhjnN7zTedw
Also, I’ve put a 400 GPH pump on the water feature and it runs pretty nice, a little quieter with the less water. When you’re picking a pump size anything between 400 and 800 gallons per hour should work!

[ below is the self-introduction I wrote when I published this video and I’m leaving it for later reference. ]
Hello my name is Travis Jantzer! I’m a vlogger from Oregon in the PNW. Online I go by TJantzer. My wife’s name is Cassie and our daughter born in spring of 2019 is named Hazel. If you watch our videos you’ll learn we love rock climbing (particularly bouldering), ultimate frisbee, road trips, diy projects, and drones. We converted a van to a camper for vanlife and take road trips when we have time. We play ultimate in the fall. Climb in the gym from fall to spring. Play Frisbee again in the spring. And play sand volleyball with our friends through the summer. I wrote a book and love writing poetry. Cassie loves watercolor painting and pencil sketching. We both enjoy cooking though she is way better at it. I started on Youtube in 2011 but did not take it seriously until 2018 and even then I was inconsistent. In 2020 my resolution is to make one video every weekend and post it by Tuesday of that week. My passion is video editing. I started doing wedding videos last year and this year got a job shooting real estate photos and video. I still consider myself an amateur, but I’m learning something new with every video.
My goals for 2020:
1 video every week
500 subscribers on Youtube
$10,000 earned from local video and photo gigs ($1000 earned but, Covid..)

I’ll respond to as many comments as I see!

I’ll see you next Tuesday.
