I am going to make one.
I want to know how long they last, and what can be done to make them last longer.
Does it help to seal the inside? With what?
If it does not land so sharply on the rock, but has a gentler touch down will that help? (I do not need the loud 'CLUNK!' sound, a gentle 'Tap' is plenty)
How secure does it have to be in the ground? Concrete? Or is compacted dirt enough?
If it is all built in one piece, secured to a plate that is buried, will that be more secure?
I am thinking of the H shaped one, with the water supply supported by the same legs as the rocking piece.
Any other tips?
