Indoor Water Fountain - Lighting & Electrical
All light bulbs eventually burn out and need to be replaced. With this in mind, the fountain bulbs used in our indoor waterfalls are found in most hardware stores. Listed below is the information for replacing the bulbs. These specifications can also be found in your indoor waterfall's instructions.
Use a 10 watt, 12V halogen bulb (JC Type) S3459.
For Standard Lights
Depending on which indoor waterfall you own, use either a 75 watt flood bulb or a 25 watt reflector bulb.
When handling a halogen bulb, never touch the glass with your skin. Oils on your skin can shorten the lifespan of the bulb, or even cause it to shatter.
How to Change a Bulb
- Unplug the indoor waterfall
- Remove the glass tube cover
- Remove the old bulb and replace it with the new one
- Replace the glass tube to protect the bulb from water
If a standard bulb burns out or shatters frequently, it may be caused by water splashing onto the bulb while it is hot. Make sure to set up the fountain so that the water flows evenly, minimize the occurrence of splashing. You may also want to adjust the light hood so that water can no longer contact the bulb. If the light bulbs on your indoor waterfall continue to burn out frequently, try replacing them with lower wattage bulbs. For example, in place of a 75 watt bulb, use a 50 watt bulb.
