I would try to use more muted light inside the water and like Geekster said make that light dance on all the walls. Whats with the line voltage or low voltage recessed ? Will you be retaining these ?

Make the water dance and then place some 20w (or maybe 35w) mr lamps below the tuscany signs. I like the idea of the pars to fill things out.

We did a 2 ft deep fountain with 10w lamps grazing a wall and 20w on the statue and it came out teriffice. Obviously you will need more punch on this here.

Ecellent project and I look forward to seeing your demo and finished project.

typo in description 4

Looks good otherwise. How wide is the base of the falls and how far will it be from your light. Instead of using a single 35 w would multiple fixtures give you a better coverage ?

Each end of the falls is about 6' wide. The par will be placed underneath about 1.5' from the base of it, (if I can find a reliable underwater par).

I never lit a fall like this before but I would probably lean on demoing 2 lower wattage lamps diving the 6 ft into thirds.


2 ft in from the edge... 2 ft apart on the lights and 2 ft to the next wall.

I could be wrong but this would be my initial concept. Curious to see how it turns out.

I will have to go take a look at it and see. I will try it with one and if it isn't sufficient or even, will go with 2. I am going to get some light bleed over from the 75 watters right next to it on the signage.

LOL.....You will enjoy it. It isnt going to be cheap per se but it will be able to hold up to a 75w lamp I believe and will also be able to go about 6-7ft deep without pressure issues. It is an MR16 underwater light completely machined form Stainless Steel. I will make sure to get some pics up and let you guys know when it is available.

Billy,
I set up the lights under the bottom of the spillway. 1 MR set back about 2' with a 35w 60 degree spread was easily enough to light the whole section. So far I will stick with the plan on that one.
I do need a mount that will stand off of the steel a bit for downlighting the pillars. There is a little square piece of finial at the top of the colomn I am going to have to extend out over. I will need to find a bracket for it or custom make something myself.
