Old piano turned into outdoor fountain (Idea by Bill Metzgar) This piano is an 1885 Steinway. It had really bad termite damage to the inner structure so yes, it was beyond repair. It was turned into a fountain for Bill's mom for Mother's Day. It has a 2000 gallon per hour pump in the pond and a flex hose from the pump up into the piano where a construction of pvc pipes was used to distribute the water across the keys. It was sealed with fiberglass resin.
