I live in rain country, where it is not unusual to get rain 10 months of the year. Are these Dabmar LV-605 Outdoor Step Light – DM-LV-605 completely waterproof? If not, is there another model you can recommend for wet environments?
Dabmar LV-605 Outdoor Step Light
We have contacted Dabmar who said that the landscape light (LV-605) is waterproof. They recommend the stainless steel version because over time there is wear and tear, but the environment is not likely to affect the stainless steel finish as it would with cast aluminum finish.

I would like this Dabmar Globe Polyethylene Series Transitional Outdoor Post Lantern – DM-D7TOP to sit as low as possible to the pier mount. Will this outdoor post lantern light attach directly to pier mount, or do I need a short piece of pole in between the two pieces?

Dabmar (the manufacturer), advised that this outdoor post lantern can work with Dabmar Outdoor Lamp Post Pier Mount – DM-BS250 as this light fit perfectly to that base. Physically, DM-D7TOP can fit also to Dabmar 2.875” Outdoor Lamp Post Pier Mount – DM-BS222 but the fixture will look a bit awkward and would be difficult as far as installation because you have such little room to screw the lamp on to the base.

What is the wattage of Dabmar LV-231 Outdoor Spot Light – DM-LV-231? I am calculating the transformer size and this is vital.
Dabmar LV-231 Outdoor Spot Light
This outdoor spotlight from Dabmar used a 20W 12V MR-16 halogen bulb which is included. When you are calculating your total wattage, make sure you are using up to only 80-90% of the transformer as voltage drops as the fixtures run further away from the transformer. This way, when you have some room left on the transformer, the furthest light from it, still has the same brightness as that light closest to the transformer.

How is this Dabmar Marquee Transitional Outdoor Lamp Post – DM-GM9913 attached at the base? What is bolt pattern and is there a base cover? What type of bulbs can a photocell be attached? Also, where do the height dimension measure? To top of light or to the bottom of fixture?

There is an access panel on the base for maintenance. This lighting fixture uses medium base, 180W, incandescent bulbs and does have a photocell option.

I am very interested in this Dabmar LV-69 Path Light – DM-LV-69 but needs it to be shorter. Is it possible to place it further into the ground so as to decrease the above-ground height? I would prefer something around 15 inches tall.

We were informed by Dabmar (the manufacturer), that you cannot cut this path light, because you will cut right into the threads. They also informed me that you cannot place it further into the ground. This fixture is made out of cast aluminum.

Does this Dabmar LV-128 Pagoda Light – LV-128 come with a post and if it does how does it “attach” to the ground? Do you need to cement it in place or does it simply push into the ground?

Dabmar (the manufacturer), advised that this path light comes with an in-ground stake that attaches to the stem so you can push them into the ground.
