You are in: Pool and Spa Lighting → Fountain Lights
When deciding to light your fountain, there are three things to consider:
1. You will need to determine if you want a color changing light or do you just want white light.
2. Once you have decided on a color changing or white light you will then need to determine if you will need a small fountain light which is approximately 6 inches in diameter or a large fountain light which is approximately 12 inches in diameter. You will also need to determine which voltage you will need along with the appropriate cord length for your light. Check with your local electrical code to find out if your area requires a 12 volt system or not.
3. Decide on how you are going to install the light fixture, surface mount (using a lighting stand) or flush mount (using a niche to install the light right into the fountain). One note here, if you are going to flush mount the light, you will have to purchase a rock guard and a niche for mounting the light. If you surface mount the light, you will only be required to purchase the stand. You CAN use a rock guard with the stand but that is optional totally up to you.
