new to this board-- but am baffeled at my dillema I’m experiencing.
I installed a 600 watt transformed on this pond, and lights with wattage that does not exceed the 600 w max.
here is the weird part----
lights worked great for 6 months. No problems. Now … they seem to be burning at the splice points. I had to splice the cable from the back of the light-- to low voltage cable that then runs to the transformer.
I noticed that the cable I bought was heavy duty-- but rated for 240w per leg coming out from the transformer.
If I was – and I think I am-- exceeding the watt the line can handle-- why woul’nt the line burn up all along the line ? why just the splice point ?
I’m taking is is BURNED and CHARDED !
