From the chart below. select the light fixtures (in watts) required to illuminate the
fountain unit. Then, select the length of cable needed form the command center to 
the lights. Allow for extra-cable length, because the cable will probably run along the bottom of the lake or pond due to the weight of the cable. The codes indicated in the chart refers to the cable gauge:

85802  #12/3           85804   #10/3          85806  #8/3           85808  #6/3


Please note that the cable has to be "one continuous run" from the command center to the lights. Lights must be installed in multiples of '' 3 lights" Each circuit must contain " 3 lights ". Should the cable wire not be long enough, adding extra cable or additional connections will cause the lights to operate incorrectly.
