    Yes directly
    Yes test patterns
    Output yes
    Double checking voltage if I can find it I know I ordered 12volt . Is it printed on light strip somewhere?

    Got it working? A bad solder joint?

    Yes that controller was my first Diy solder controller . Guess when I tightened down the wires the negative out to lights broke loose. Cause when I applied separate ground to the injection wire the arch lit up. Reflowed the ground joint and fixed.

    Hi nice work they should be fine as I used 1"x1" wooden steaks for mine last year and had no issues. They do look good when lit up and working.

    Hallo Sammy,
    Ben in nederland ook al aan het zoeken geweest, lastig.
    Wat doe jij met de kerst? Huis, tuin? Ik heb de laatste kerst in het wkz te utrecht gestaan.

    Groet

    Keep your eyes out at Lowes and HD. They've changed vendors of PEX several times in the last few years. Twice I was able to get 100' rolls of 3/4" white for $10 in the clearance area. I also got a 1/2" 300' roll for $15. After installing two new outside faucets, I've still got 260' of it I doubt I'll ever use for anything. But what a deal!
