Definition of an LED Faucet light
It has been no doubt that lights have made the world look beautiful especially in cities like Japan.
However, you can install some of these lights in your house to improve on house design. LED stands for light emitting diode in which it realises light through electroluminescence.
According to Wikipedia that means…
Electroluminescence (EL) is an optical phenomenon and electrical phenomenon in which a material emits light in response to the passage of an electric current or to a strong electric field.
There are three factors that allow these lights to work perfectly:
- Polarity: the connection of the positive and negative power sources.
- Voltage: the amount of energy needed to make the light come up.
- Current: the maximum flow of power needed before the bulbs burn out.

I get the need to have these lights in a house. Mostly is for decorations plus it makes it look cool for children and eye appealing to guests.
These faucet lights produce a variety of colour ranging from 1 to 8 colours. This change can be random or on the basis of water temperature.

4.Setting up pull-down facet
Attach a connect hose to the supply pipe then pull down the hose to attach weight on it.
Install the water lines and make sure you use plumber tape where needed. Remember that you should not tighten the connections too much as it will mess with the whole water system supply.
6.Monitoring for leaks
Turn on the water to check for some leaks and if you get any, slowly tighten if necessary.
