Product Overview

For 18-years, Post Protector has provided simple, slide-on barrier protection for in-ground posts. It works in conjunction with the chemical preservative as an important additional layer of protection against soil-dwelling and atmospheric decay fungi and insect infestation. Its first important to understand decay. Many believe that moisture CAUSES decay. Moisture is not the cause of decay but is 1 of 3 conditions needed for decay to occur. The conditions: 1 Moisture, 2 Oxygen and 3 Suitable temperature. These conditions enable the soil-dwelling or atmospheric decay fungi, as well as termites and other subterranean insects, to feed on the wood fiber. So the Decay/Degradation of ground-contact wood is not CAUSED by moisture but by the action of wood destroying organisms feeding on the wood. The chemical preservatives protection strategy is to poison the wood fiber, rendering it an unsuitable food source for the wood destroying organisms. The downside to that approach is that all chemical preservatives eventually lose resistance to decay and insect infestation. Post Protector becomes the perfect complement to the pressure treated (or cedar) post by simply providing a physical barrier isolating the post so the wood-destroying organisms have NO access to the post.

they were exacting what I was looking for. I used them to allow volleyball post replacement without having to do concrete work. I buried the post protectors in gravel then concrete on top. The post will slip right out of the protectors if and when needed! I made some drain holes in the bottom for the small amount of water to drain out.
