I've got a problem with my Aqualamp lights. (in-ground, vinyl, 16x32). There was some corrosion in the transformer box so I cleaned the contacts and reconnected and they worked. A couple days later they stopped again.
I opened the box and one of the transformers slid down out of its grooves and a few things melted. I figure I need a new transformer box. I called a distributor and they said just go to a hardware store and save some money.
I bought a 12v 200W outdoor transformer at Home Depot but the instructions said do not use with submerged pool lights so I took it back. Even after I took it back an employee told me it would still be fine. I'm not sure. Should I pay the 400$ for the original manufacturer's box or just 90$ for the Home Depot one?
