Safety Information

WARNING: It is recommended whenever working in or near water to have all electrical devices plugged into a ground fault interrupter (GFCI) that has been installed by a licensed electrician.

  • To reduce the risk of electrical shock or damage to the light, all wiring and junction connections should be made per local codes. Requirements may vary depending on usage and location.
  • The power cable should be protected at all times to avoid punctures, cuts, bruises, and abrasion.
  • Operating the light fi xture outside of the 9-15 volt operating range voids the product warranty and may damage or shorten the life of the LEDs.

 

IMPORTANT: Aquascape, Inc. is not responsible for losses, injury, or death resulting from a failure to observe these safety precautions, misuse or abuse of pumps or equipment.

Aquascape Garden & Pond LED Lighting Installation Instructions

Mounting Options

Choose the option that works best for each light.

Removable Mounting Stand (#84031, #84033, and #84034 only)

  • Remove the threaded nut from the fixture holder and insert holder into the base. Use the threaded nut to secure the fixture holder (Ex. 1).

Landscape Stake (#84031, #84033, and #84034 only)

  • Remove the threaded nut from the fixture holder and thread the stake clockwise into the bottom of the fixture holder (Ex. 2).

No Stand or Stake

  • The lights can be used without the fixture holder to allow the fixture to be disguised between rocks (Ex. 3).

Adjusting the Light Angle

  • To adjust the angle, push up or down on the fixture holder until it “clicks” into the desired position (Ex. 4).

Waterfall and Up Light Base (#84032 only)

  • The pre-installed stand can be removed for installation in tight spaces (Ex. 5).

Connect Light Fixtures

  • Aquascape Garden and Pond lights include 2-pin, quick-connect fittings to provide tool-free electrical connections.

    WARNING: Do not cut or remove the isolation chamber, as it will damage the light and void the warranty (Ex. 6).

  • Splitters and extension cables are available to install multiple lights. See the recommended products section for available extensions and splitters.
  • Connect lights to Garden and Pond quick-connect splitters and extensions (Ex. 7). 

    NOTE: Quick-connect connections must be fully tightened to prevent water from entering. Dielectric grease, available at most home improvement stores, can be used in all connections to further prevent water infiltration.

  • If desired, the Aquascape Garden and Pond Photocell with Digital Timer can be installed at this time. See the recommended products section for more information).

 

WARNING: Do not submerge quick-connect fittings, as moisture entering the connections will damage the lights.

NOTE: The light can also be wired directly in pre-existing low-voltage lighting systems. Cut off the quick-connect and use a commercially available wiring device suitable for outdoor applications per local codes. 

NOTE: Light failure as a result of improper wiring is not covered under warranty.

Transformer Setup

  • Aquascape Garden and Pond lights are designed to operate on a 12-volt, outdoor-rated transformer.
  • Connect the light, photocell, splitter, or extension cable to the transformer (Ex. 8).
  • Plug the transformer into a GFCI-protected outlet (Ex. 9).

WARNING: Aquascape garden and pond lights have a max voltage operating range between 9 and 15 volts. Operating the light outside of this voltage range voids the product warranty and may damage or shorten the life of the light.

NOTE: It is recommended to locate the transformer as close to the light fixtures as possible to avoid voltage drops caused by long cable runs.

NOTE: It is recommended to bury low voltage cables 6″ or less.
