Smart lighting buying guide: How to choose the right one for your home
Before installing your pond lights, make sure that you have access to an outdoor power point that has been installed by a qualified electrician. The power point needs to be close enough to the pond so that electrical cable from the lights can reach it. Please note, the cable connected to the lights is waterproof but the cable connected to the power adaptor must be kept dry at all times.
The pond light kit comes with coloured lenses, that let you add some colour to your pond and garden. To change a lens, unscrew the outer cover at the front of the light. Remove the lens and replace it with the coloured lens of your choice. Make sure that the rubber O-ring is in place around the lens so that no water gets in. Screw the outer cover back on to the front of the light.
It's important to make sure that this connection is tight to stop any water from leaking into the transformer. Insert the two pin point plug into the transformer and screw the securing cap over it. Plug the pond light cable into the power point to test that the lights are working.
To give your project a professional finish, cover the cables. This can be done two ways. You can put the landscaping rocks around your pond over the cable. If you don't have rocks, dig a shallow trench in the soil. Run the power cable inside the trench and cover it with the soil.
