DIY Under Water Fishing Lights
those strips are very schetchy at best, ive stopped using them completely, cheaply made and produce a lot of inefficient heat. if you have any heat, you are wasting energy. not to mention the life of strips like that are about 6 months to a year, and the silicone cracks and deteriorates, heat causing pressure , pressure breaks seal, very bad deal. short in wire- boat on fire. consider 3w green leds in a 1 watt config (3.3v @ 300mAh) stack them in series of 3 to match the 12v and be seriously efficient. always do the math- and never trust pre-made light strips or modules. always use a voltage regulator that lets you adjust voltage and current (always) or your lights will go pifff. when they should last 10 years. boat electricity is nasty stuff to tangle with. especially when there is water involved. make sure you use marine sealant. high temperature. :) good luck and stay safe. your design is really cool
Try a plumbing supply store. They will always carry more then the "We Sell Every Thing!" stores.
Try using 3528 led strips instead, 600 led's in a 5M piece (averages about 120 led's a meter), better coverage and produces more light.
Can somebody please tell me where i can buy the 1 inch to 3/4 slip on pvc fitting? I checked lowes and homdepot. Thanks in advance
