I have a 4 tour rock pool water fountain and it has a power pack which has 4 leads they screw in to it. I am desperately trying to find a replacement for the lead and screw ins but I have no idea what it is called if anyone could possibly help me I would be most grateful.

Thanks in advance

It sounds like those 2 pin ELV screw on connectors that are sometimes used for garden lighting. But as a move, put some photos on here.

That's the ones I was thinking about. You may struggle to get them, although maybe ebay. The problem then would be fitting them.

Does it run at 12V or 24V? If so we will be able to suggest an alternative method of connecting those cables together.

Quite a lot of cheap garden lights use this sort of fitting, but I'm not sure it's a standard, so it may be a case of trial and error. Do you know the brand of the fixture?

"Duracell" (just a company using the brand I'm sure) lighting used to use similar and was available at Toolstation but seems not to be any more

The other end that has broken presumably comes from a transformer? Checking if it is 12/24V and the brand name may give you something search for...

If they are 12V, something like this or this might fit, though only does 3. The transformers often have the same fitting, so you can choose the length of cable you need from it...

Can't seem to find a 4 gang extender, but if the ratings allow it may be possible to split more than once...

Seen them on decking lights, just a 4 way splitter.

It my be more cost effective to buy a new full kit, use the splitter out of it and keep the lamps for the future if one fails.

The adapter/power supply will have the ratings, voltage etc written on it. can we get a photo of it please?

or if possible, just replace everything
