Spruce Up The Pond With Pond Lights

A pool in the court at the back of your house not just provides you with a place to relax but also gives you a beautiful and nice look to it. This phenomenon dims down with the downing of the sun.

The installation of pond lights gives stability to the beauty and nicety to the area irrespective of the position of sun.

The tools you might need while arranging the lights in the pond are floating solar pond lights, floating lighted pond fountain, electric or solar, underwater pond light with transformer and electricity source.

With all the above things ready, we can easily begin to light up the pond. We now leave in the social light to float over the surface of the pond. These moving lights need no timer or switch. These lights are left to move freely over the surface of the pond and it illuminates with the fall of night, with the energy provided by the sun light during the day.

A huge variety in the size and shapes of lights are available in the market. Some comes in the shape of water lilies or other aquatic plants. These are great in highlighting around a feature of the pond, such as an attractive rock or boulder, a beautiful planting of unusual aquatic plants, or a sculpture.

Now arrange the floating lighted fountain deep in the pond. Well, this will benefit you in two ways, that is, it brings you light and prevents odors. It’s easy to add attractive, dramatic accents to ponds with the floating fountain. For the working of the floating fountain, it requires an electric source and a fastener.

More attractive and effective lighting is possible with the installation of lights around the edges of the pond and by proper spacing of the lights. This again depends upon the brightness of the light that is needed. To attain this we must have light fixtures, cables, fasteners and transformers.

For an underwater light cable to be plugged, we would require an outdoor GFCI receptacle. An electric box is to be fixed on a pole near the pond so that we can reach it easily. This GFCI must be covered with a waterproof cover to keep the lights plugged in.
