Hi,

I am planning to use L.E.Ds under water. I am making a small pond and want to use L.E.Ds under water. Has anyone ever tried this? Are there special water proof L.E.Ds or how can I make the ordinary L.E.Ds water proof. Any idea that can steer me in the right direction is welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

Well, waterproofing the leads of the leds are going to be the problem. Using silcone adhesive bought from a hardware store might do the trick, but it might not look so nice Rolling Eyes

For underwater Use .

Waterproof Of underground lamp becomes very strictly ,AND it must be reach IP66 .

you know a underwater bulb when put underwater use .it has some heats spread out .When meet water ,And it will cooling down .after a heat then cooling down ,the silicon gasket of bulb easy be cracked .And the water will link in lamp .If use High voltage ,it will very dangerous .

Well, depending on current and voltage, 3V should not have a problem and I've immersed these LED's entirely and had no problem.
