Old ugly water fountain

I couldn't leave the second-hand store without this awesomely hideous fountain. Now I need to make it work. Can anyone point me towards the power supply needed for the lights? There are four, each with its own two-prong plug. I can't find any info stamped anywhere on them to give me any clues. I've Googled a lot, but can't make sense of anything, as I'm not well educated about this kind of thing. Please see pics. Thank you!

Welcome to the forums.

We'd have to guess at the lights. Taking an educated guess...... I'd say those are 12v bi-pin landscape bulbs. They are probably low wattage..... possibly between 5-10 watts each.

Do you have any old plug in wall warts you want to get rid of ?
See if any have an output voltage near 12v on them. It can be AC or DC.

We can point you towards what to buy once we confirm what the bulbs are. There are many different power supply options available but as your application deals with water..... you'd need an actual transformer type adapter.... not a switching type of adapter which is not suitable for an underwater lamp.
