Introduction: Repair Leaked Water Dancing Speakers
Hi, this is my first ible!
I bought these Water Dancing Speakers a year ago, and they worked great. But for some reason, one of the speakers broke, and the water inside it was emptied. I checked online for a solution but found no threads or instructions on how to repair them. So, if you're like me, I hope this helps!
Step 1: Tools You'll Need:
Here are the tools I used:
-An electric drill with a 1.2mm bit
-A syringe with a needle
-A philipps screw driver
-Epoxy/a waterproof sealant
Step 2: Disassemble the Speakers
Mine has 4 screws outside and 5 more inside. The board essily slid out and so as the transparent plastic part with the motor. The only part held down was the speaker. After removing the speakers, you can work more freely.
Just unscrew 2 more holding the motor in place and we're good.
Step 3: Refilling
I first drilled a hole 1.2 mm wide under the box. After drilling, I filled up the syringe, inserted it to the box, and than injected. It took me about 5 refills with my syringe. Just lay the other speaker(if it's not broken as well), beside the one you're fixing and use it as a guide.
Step 4: Sealing the Hole You Just Made
I sealed the hole with a two-part epoxy. You may use a sealant or caulk as long as it stays on and doesn't leak. Let it dry.
Step 5: Reassembly
NOTE:When reassembling, align the magnets on the rotor of the motor to the wheel's inside the transparent box.
I simply reassembled it after the sealant dried and you're good to go. Make sure you place all the parts correctly, because the lid might crack easily. They're still upside-down just to let the sealant dry more.
