Other than replacement, Landscape lighting fixtures have a fairly low need for maintenance. Landscape lights can be cleaned when they become dirty. First, use a dry cloth & wipe away any loose dirt & debris. Then, use a bucket full of water & a small amount of dish detergent to wipe off the fixtures. Finally, use clean water to rinse off the soapy mixture. If dirt is tough to get off, you can use a soft bristled brush to remove dirt from crevices & hard to reach areas. If this still does not work, then use a Magic Eraser to remove stubborn dirt & grime. Afterwards, dry the fixtures thoroughly with a clean towel. Let any moistness or humidity dry off on its own afterward.
 
Often people would like to know how their lighting system is controlled. The answer is a timer which is located inside the transformer controls the system. You are able to set desired on & off times & can also manually over ride the system with a simple flip of a switch. A quick tip to remember is that Landscape fixtures are supposed to be replaced after an average life of 2000 hours. With this being said, it is important to monitor your lighting system & determine how often you use your lamps. Keep a record, log, or journal to help you be ever – more accurate & precise in this regard.

    How do you connect landscape lights?
     
    How to install low-voltage landscape lighting
    Landscape lighting is the sizeable outdoor light that illuminates your pathways. For low-voltage landscape light fixtures, your considerations should include checking the transformer, low-voltage electrical cable, pathways lighting, & accent fixtures. Tips for managing the installation include
    – Laying the cable – alight your fixtures about 8 – 10 feet apart, then dig trenches of about 3 inches deep to mark the area to install the light fixtures.
    – Installing the transformer – peel the cable & connect the two wires in terminal A & B on the transformer & tighten the screws.
    – Connect the lights & test them

    Why are some of my landscape lights not working?
     
    Repairs on landscape lighting
    It's not easy to repair the landscape lights either to the homeowner or a technician. The major red flag to noticing that you have an issue with your landscape lighting is when they don't turn on, & you have power in your transformer. The common problems would be your toggle switch flipping in an off position, or you have a blown fuse stat, both of which can be caused by a shot in a particular part in your electrical supply system. Know what the common causes of shorts are & how to keep away from them.
