Step 1 Fill the bottom of the barrel with the two bags of Lava Rock.
Step 2 Place the closed plastic planter on the Lava Rocks and in the center of the Whiskey Barrel. This will be your water reservoir so be sure there are no holes.
Step 3: Mix the two part epoxy (included in the TotalPond® Container Fountain Kit with LED Lights) until it is a consistent gray color. We recommend wearing gloves. Position the cord through the hole to your mark. Use the epoxy to fill the hole around the cord. Wait a minimum of 1.5 hours for the epoxy to harden.
TIP: Do not move the cord while the epoxy is setting.
Step 4: Once the epoxy has hardened, flip the planter over and add a small amount of the water to test for leaks. For extra seal, we recommend reinforcing the seal with a caulk.
Step 5: Once you are certain there is no leak, place the 5 smaller pavers under the planter. These will help will the cord running out the bottom.
Step 6: Once the planter is positioned, add the 6 pavers into the planter. Notice that your assembled TotalPond® Container Fountain Kit with Light is draped over the back of the planter. Place a black planter with no holes over the pavers to conceal them.
Step 7: Position the TotalPond® Container Fountain Kit with Light on the pavers and begin to fill with water until the pump is fully submerged.
TIP: We recommend covering the pavers inside the planter with a black planter or bucket to make them less visible.
Step 8: For a finishing touch, add the 3 bags or more of the pebbles around the base of the planter. Plug it in and enjoy!
