Customer Question

My house has an outdoor power pack installed for outdoor garden lights. The lights are old and need replacing however the cord from the lights is burried under the dirt. I'm sure it does not go under the concrete. there is a power pack directly next to the cord but the two don't seem to be connected.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Please provide additional details. What is your question? Are you trying to confirm if the power pack transformer is connected to the underground low voltage cable?

2) Do you have a multi-meter available?

Thanks for the replies.

1) Most low voltage landscape lighting transformers will contain screw terminals where the low voltage cable terminates to.

2) Can you send me a picture of the transformer and the manufacturer name and model number?
