          If what you are sealing is in good shape and clean, then transparent waterproofing stain is the way to go. If the wood is off color or has a more color variation and you want to hide it more go with the semi-transparent version.
          I used this on some fencing. It goes on easy, roll it, brush it, spray it, wipe it etc. Depending on what you are working on some methods work better than others. Basically flood the surface to get the best protection. Vertical surfaces and recesses i think are best done with a sprayer. A pump sprayer, not an airless or hvlp or something that atomises the stain. Coverage is pretty uniform and its forgiving. Start in the least obvious location and see how it looksRead More

          The 32 oz. All-Purpose Spray Bottles can be used anywhere you need a spray bottle. Its dilution and measuring scale helps make mixing easy. The convenient check-off grid helps identify the contents and prevents chemical mix-ups.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Used it a dozen times and the sprayer came apart. Seems if you get a little enthusiastic spraying and try to spray too fast it can't take it. It will go back together but them it only last a few more sprays. Well for a dollar you get what you pay for. Go for the slightly more expensive spray bottle they sell
          Cons: Not Durable

          This Razor-Back trenching shovel has a unique blade design for digging trenches. The 4 in. wide shaped blade is designed for digging a narrow trench in a construction application. It is the highest quality garden tool.

          Lifetime warranty for 20 something bucks and feels like it should last, it's a winner. I used to dig 50 feet or so of trench for my landscape lighting. It did the job and it wasn't easy. The shovel held up and still looks like it has a lot of life left in it. The handle and blade will flex a little when you try to pry a rock out but nothing broke or bent. This is a quality shovel and is easily worth the investment if you are going to be doing any trenching.
          I am 6' 2" and digging down a 6 inches or foot isn't a problem. I used it to dig down 18" (foot and half) and I would have liked the handle to be a foot longer a lot of the time when I was getting down to the depth i needed. But otherRead More

          I have a 20 x 40 pool and I had a guess a 40 or 45 ft hoes and could never clean the entire pool. It was either get another hose and a coupling or a longer hose. I chose the later as it was only a few dollars more and I didn't need 25 feet more hose just 5 or 10.
          This hose feels like a pretty decent quality, actually slightly less than the one i have but not cheap like what all pools stores sell for a similar price. A similar quality hose is twice the price at the pool store.
          One cuff is glued on so it should stay on for good and not leak, the other end is free to let at twists in the hose. and the hose unwinds pretty easily. winding up is easy too. The inside of the hose is pretty smoothRead More

          Answer: 
          Check your local electrical code and/or check with your local building inspector. If it's a circuit dedicated to these lights, you could put a lot on the one circuit without overloading the circuit. I would suspect this would be well beyond what would be acceptable by code. If you are unsure an electrician should be called in.
