First, you want to choose your lighting type for your project. Fountains do best with a submersible light. Submersible landscape lights are placed below the surface of the water in the basin and pointed upward toward the body of it. They can create a shimmering effect and help to illuminate the fountain itself as well as the streams of water being sprayed into the basin. A good way to add some creativity is to use color filters. Often the lights will come with these filters and they can add a vibrant modern effect to your landscape.
Besides using durable LEDs of the highest quality, both the Antari UV Spot 670 and Antari UV Wash 2000 use a special silicone lens that is UV resistant and slow to degrade. Most other plastic lenses will brown and deteriorate over a few years of use but these lenses will last for 25 years or more.
While minimal, solar lights do have some drawbacks. If you live in an area that snows or is overcast for most of the winter, you will want to store your lights inside. Many lights use rechargeable batteries that you will have to replace every few years. Theft of your lights is easier since wiring isn't required. Performance will vary depending on placement and weather.
Often people head down to the local DIY store or hardware shop. This of course does work and often you will find the lighting supplies you need. Is the cost however the lowest available? The chances are good that the costs are high. The trouble with regular shops on the high street is that they tend to have very high overheads. These costs have to be passed onto the customer in order to make the business viable. That is why there is always a premium on prices in shops on the high street. The other difficulty is that because DIY stores are not specialist lighting shops, they may be lacking some items that you need, or at least items you would want to be able to view before deciding what to buy. This is especially true of all commercial lighting supplies. A high street store just doesn't have the room to supply everything.
