VOLT® Underwater Light - Forged Brass

When you don't want it to leak (and you want it to last) there is only one choice in underwater light construction-- FORGED BRASS! Forged brass is less porous than cast brass. Starts with one chunk of solid brass that is heated red hot and then forged into this shape-- a true heavyweight, quality underwater light for use in fountains and water features. Precisely-engineered brass faceplate screws onto the body and fits onto O-ring for a watertight seal. A pressure fitting seals the opening where the cable enters the fixture. Solid forged brass construction is the best material for underwater use, especially in chlorinated and chemically treated water features where aluminum will corrode. Uses MR16 lamps.

Features & Benefits:

  • Solid forged brass construction
  • Antique bronze finish
  • Uses MR16 Lamp (Not Included)
  • 25' 18AWG, FT2 premium tinned copper lead wire
  • Beryllium socket with conductive grease
  • Water tight seals --- pressure rubber gasket, rubber seal around wire exit. (fully submersible)
  • Clear flat glass for maximum light output
  • Silicone plug where lead wire exits fixture
  • Perfect for placing in fountains, waterfalls, water gardens, ponds, etc.
  • Note: Fixture must be fully submerged at all times of operation
  • Low voltage, 12v AC for safe installation
  • Requires VOLT's® Low Voltage Transformer (Sold Separately, click HERE to view)
  • UL & cUL Listed
  • Lifetime Warranty

  • Q:

    This is such a good fixture. Can it be used as a typical spot light (out of the water)?
    Asked on 4/18/2017 by Ron from Atlanta, GA

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      No, the Underwater light has to be either fully submerged or at least have running water over the fixture itself for heat dispersion.

  • Q:

    How to wire with 3 wires
    Asked on 4/1/2017 by Jason from Turlock ca

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      With this fixture, the green wire will not be needed. We recommend using a wire nut to independently cap off that green wire, and only use the black and white wire to connect to the transformer.

      Answered on 4/2/2017 by Anonymous
  • Q:

    In a previous response / answer it was mentioned ".....but keep in mind there is a ground wire as well...". Where does the ground wire connect into my transformer? I have all volt lighting but don't recall any having a ground connection. Thanks!
    Asked on 3/19/2017 by Jeff from Ashburn VA

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      With the Underwater light we carry, it does come with (3) strands of cable attached to it; A black, a white, and a green strand. The green strand will not need to be connected to your system, so all you will have to do, is connect the black and white strands to your low voltage line, and simply use (1) wire connector to cap off and isolate the green strand of cable. Of Course, you should check with an electrician and/or your local codes and regulations.

    what are the dimensions of each light?
    Asked on 1/8/2017 by gia from Malibu, Ca 90265

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      The Underwater Light has a baseplate that is 3 3/4" across, knuckle height of 2 7/8" tall, fixture length of 3 3/4 inches long, faceplate is 3 7/8" across, and the glass is 2 3.8" across. The fixture attached to the mount at its largest height would be 5 5/8".

  • Q:

    Can I get this light with 50' cord?
    Asked on 1/5/2017 by Rafael from Los Angeles

    1 answer

    • VOLT Lighting Specialist

      A:

      Unfortunately not. The Underwater light only comes with a one lead wire option (25'). You could always add on cable and use a heat seal connector, but keep in mind there is a ground wire as well.

So far this looks like the answer I was looking for. I have gone through two or three submersible fountain lights over the past years, and they all seem to eventually leak with water damaging the interior parts.
I am really impressed with the quality of this light compared to others. I am using it with a M16 narrow beam, 2700 K light and it illuminates my fountain head perfectly. The fit and finish of this light fixture is far superior to anything else I have seen or owned in the past, and I expect that it will stay water tight for many, many years.
After experiencing the quality and the customer service of Volt Company with my fountain light purchase, I ordered 33 Tulip lights to replace my old and deteriorating tulip lights. Volt is a great company with quality products!

Unsure of long term quality of the waterproofing

I am unsure on rating. I really like the look of them and lighting of the LED. However - I had 3 of these lights professionally installed in my waterfall pond 7 months ago. Two of the three leaked and corroded the bulbs and plug in component. I have reordered and replaced them myself - hopefully they will last longer this time.

Comments about VOLT® Forged Brass Underwater Light | Pond Lighting for Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

The quality of the pond lights exceeded my expectations. They are solid and should last for years. The power cord was long to reach the power hub away from the water. I especially like the wide lens for maximum light output. Very water tight with construction.

Stunning effects on papyrus

By

Comments about VOLT® Forged Brass Underwater Light | Pond Lighting for Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

Used in source pond for a waterfall and stream. We have papyrus growing in that pond and shine this light straight up at them. The effect of light through ripples into the papyrus fronds is absolutely stunning kaleidoscope like effect. This is my third unit like this, and they a solid so far. No leaks, sturdy cord with ground. I took a video but due to frame rate it just doesn't capture the shimmering effects.

Comments about VOLT® Forged Brass Underwater Light | Pond Lighting for Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

To the People at Volt: When I ordered this submersible light I was hopeful it would perform as your representative assured me it would. Turns out, he was absolutely correct! I was looking for a "wave effect" (caused by the ripples in the fountain) and the reflected light to appear against the wall. This is truly entertaining and enjoyable to watch during the evening hours. Looking at the light and feeling it's weight, I would highly recommend this products purchase to anyone that is interested in a quality, and moreover, longevity,

Comments about VOLT® Forged Brass Underwater Light | Pond Lighting for Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

Anyone who does outdoor lighting professionally can usually attest to the fact that aquatic/underwater lights are generally the most unreliable and problematic. I have found this light to stay watertight and produce professional results. Not much more could be asked for.

      Comments about VOLT® Forged Brass Underwater Light | Pond Lighting for Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

      Two of these in our Koi pond for over 4 years now. Had one of the LED lamps go out. It was replaced without hassle under the lifetime guarantee. Can't say enough about the service or the product. Nice bright lights that cast fish shadows up on our walls. The housings themselves and seals are in great shape after 4 years. No corrosion at all. All the faceplate screws were easy to remove and screw back in with nothing locked up.

      50 Watt LED Pond Light

      By 

      from Dothan, AL United States

      Site Member

      Comments about VOLT® Forged Brass Underwater Light | Pond Lighting for Low Voltage Landscape Lighting:

      I love the fixture, and though pricey, the 50 watt LED bulbs put out a lot of light with very little energy use. My only complaint is cord length. The lights I replaced had longer cords, and I need another 5 or 10 feet to position these in my 18 x 24 pond exactly where I would like them. If their is an option to order a light with 35 foot cord, please let me know.
