At Tin Shark Fountainworks we are never standing still. We are always working on bringing new innovative features to our fountains! We would like to take the time to introduce our lighting kit, compatible with all of our fountains and fountain control panels. But not just any lighting kit, a lighting kit worthy of the name Tin Shark.
Beautifully integrated into our fountain float, our lighting kit will come with your choice of a 3 light or 6 light configuration. Each light is incredibly easy to install into the float by firmly sliding and twisting it into place. Then each light simply connects with a water tight snap twist connector to our custom cable splitter. The light kit then connects to the included transformer/timer. The timer includes a photocell allowing for timed operation starting at dusk. All Tin Shark Fountainworks fountain control panels are pre-wired with power for our lighting kit.
Each light is powered by (3) 3 watt super bright LED lights. Each light puts out a whopping 2637 lumens! For a combined light output of 7911 lumens for the 3 light kit and 15,822 lumens for the six light kit. Which makes for one amazingly bright fountain. For comparison a typical 65 watt incandescent down light (or a 10-15 watt LED or compact florescent down light) typically puts out only about 600-800 lumens. Thus our 6 light kit puts out the same light output as almost 23 typical household down lights, while only using a total power consumption of 54 watts. At 10 cents per kilowatt hour, our 6 light kit only costs 1/2 cent per hour to operate.
We simply didn’t stop until we developed the most elegant, easy to install, brightest, longest lasting, lowest power lighting kit on the market, while at the same time keeping it the most economical lighting kit on the market. Our 3 light kit is preliminary priced at $450 and our 6 light kit is preliminary priced at $600. Many other fountain manufacturers charge almost twice that.
Well be rushing to take photos of our fountains with our new light kit while having our web developers adding the light kit to our website (they can hardly keep up with us). So we will in the coming weeks have the lighting kit available on our site. In the mean time, rest assured that any fountain you buy from us is already “kit ready” and soour lighting kit can always be purchased at any time later and added to any one of our fountains.
