Our bird bath of many years broke. This satellite dish given to us by a friend will do until I come across something better.
Inner portion of a minnow bucket.
Outdoor light socket.
Washers – 2.
I made an L bracket from plumbing strap and attached it inside using the eye bolt. I then used zip ties to attach the socket to the L bracket. To wire it I cut off the female end of an extension cord, ran it through the hole I drilled and then wire nutted it to the socket. I wrapped electrical tape around the cord where it goes through the hole. I’ve had no problems with this but it might be better to use an electrical box cable clamp. The light is hung by a fish stringer which also helps to hide the cord.
The cord runs to an electrical outlet on our deck which we just plug in to turn the light on.
Well over a year ago while on a bike ride I found this light fixture dumped on the side of the road. I couldn’t resist bringing it home even though I had no plans for it. When Nova seen it she suggested we put solar lights on it and hang it outside.
I finally got around to doing it. I removed the wiring and flipped the light fixtures upside down. Was lucky that the solar lights we picked pressed right in to the fixture. Even though it’s currently hanging from a tree it does receive enough sun to charge the lights.
Now what to do with the fish? I put them in this small stock tank we had. I think we may keep this as I expect it’ll be easier to clean than the pond was. Being above ground I’m sure I’d need to get a pond heater for winter though or the thing will freeze solid.
