    Adding LED lighting to waterfall

    Has anyone added lights (LED strips?) to a water feature? I have a few LEDs surface mounted, but would like a colored "glow" under the water

    I just have underwater LED lights in mine. No color change.

    Paul, Any pictures? What brand or any other information on how you added them after the build would be helpful.

    The led's are underwater ones I found at Home Depot. They are $30 each and 2/3 fail. The look is good but the quality of the lights suck.

    I want to use strips though so that I can catch the lower fall before it hits the pool.

    Re: Adding LED lighting to waterfall

    Ahh.. how funny! Thanks Dave! Been learning/researching here since 2013 and probably would have lost our sanity if we hadnt followed others builds. Just seeing what others struggled with between delays and quality control helped us climb back off the ledge more than a few times. Also helped us to stand our ground that we werent just being super picky.. just need you to do it right, please. Here is a day shot.. appreciate the help, welcome and compliment. This site is a lifesaver for real!
