my Zen is lit again!
my Zen is lit again!
You might remember the Zen Fountain (pictured above) I got for my birthday last year. After some time of using the light went off.
Well, the expectancy for light bulbs is simply, they will blow out some day. The solution? Replace it with a new one.
The problem, it was not that easy to replace the light bulb.
(as usual, more photos follow...)
It looks like a normal halogen spotlight. The problem is that it is an unusual smaller version, as well as the unusual 5W version.
I asked quite a few lighting shops. Non of them carried such light bulb. Many checked their computer and couldn't find it. One light shop gave me the address of a wholesaler. I finally managed to visit the wholesaler today.
I was so relieved that they have this unusual light bulb. I bought six in one go, and I hope that those six light bulbs would last a long time.
Finally, my Zen is lit again!
The fountain has always been working, but without light, it just doesn't look right.
The wholesaler told me that the particular halogen light bulb is a bit hard to get. If they can't any more in the future, I might have to switch to LED version of the spotlight.
I would like to end this entry with a useful tip. Never touch the halogen light bulbs or spotlight bulbs directly with your hand. The halogen light bulbs (and spotlights) are very high temperature, and the oil from fingers will cause the damage to the bulb (or shorten the life of the halogen bulb at least).
(to Don: Antony is poor.)
