    Firstly, I need to extend the leads provided and would like advice as to the method of spicing the two wires given that they will be subject to water, and secondly, the size and type of transformer required for just two light fixtures - Thanks

    Hey Clyde,

    With low-voltage underwater lights, the connections are typically made outside of the water. Any connections made underwater are naturally more prone to failure and the connections are also more difficult to make with a pre-existing body of water. Because we pride ourselves on recommendations for products and processes which promote ease-of-use and longevity, we do not have any underwater specific connectors for sale.

    For only two fixtures, our smallest transformer (the 100W Slim Line) would offer plenty of power and leave you plenty of room for expansion in the future.
