    Anybody have a suggestion for an LED Strip Tape? I have seen a few online - but have no experience using anything like this. I would like something that can be bought in a roll and cut to custom lengths. Also, a warm color is preferred. Any suggestions and/or input would be greatly appreciated.

    There is simply miles of this product available to the market. The key here is to ensure that the product you choose is:

    1: IP or UL rated for oudoor applications.
    2: Able to be cut for length in the field. (usually have preset indents where it can be cut)
    3: Comes with some means of sealing where you cut it.
    4: Operates on 12 Vac and doesnt require an accessory driver unit.
    5: Has some form internal heat sinking that comes into contact with the LED chips.

    Then of course there should be some means by which to attache this product to the finished surface. Small linear channels (extrusions) are probably the best, most secure approach.

    Hi Mike. No, INTEGRA is just an Outdoor Lighting Systems Company. I took a stab at Christmas Lighting a long time ago, but it wasn't for me. As for irrigation, everyone knows that water and electricity don't mix! :laugh:
