One Solution for Hard to Find Low Voltage Fixtures
Background: Ted, a Homeowner from Mickleton, NJ

Question: I have a paver patio with 3 foot columns and the patio has low voltage landscape lighting. The problem is I can’t find decent low voltage post type fixture for my columns. I was told that I can use 120v post fixture on my 12v landscape lighting provided that I use a 12v bulb. Will that be OK?

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Ted.
