Concrete Kit for HYVE Lights
This conveninet kit includes 20' of 2 1/2" PVC Pipe, 320' of 1/2 flexible core-line, 250' of 12/2 Landscape Wire, a 56W transformer and the HYVE light with oversize ring for contractor to visualize product.
Simply cut PVC pipe every 12-14" in lengths and rough in for every light/HYVE product you plan on installing throughout your concrete area.
Next from your low voltage transformer run core-line to first cut pipe placed in light location, cut core-line and place under cut pipe location.
Next run new core-line from under same pipe as per above and run to the next cut pipe which is the next light location. Continue this till you reach your final light location.
Once core-line runs are roughed in, now you can run your landscape wire. Push wire in from transformer location and follow core-line. Landscape wire is ran throughout each pipe location running continuously in every core-line to final light location. Be sure to pull lots of extra wire at the end as in the next step we will go though the step of leaving extra wire in each pipe.
Once wire is ran throughout, now go to each pipe starting from the last and first and pull back extra wire so each pipe has at least 18" of looped wire inside so later on there is enough to connect the lights in every pipe.
Once given enough slack of wire in each pipe, again 18" of looped wire suggested in each pipe. Now you can fasten the pipe to the rebar and place duct tape over and under the pipe to ensure no concrete is poured into the pipe. Remember the lights and wire need to fit in the cut pipe locations so duct tape will ensure concrete does not enter.
Concrete is poured and dried, great now is the fun part!
Pipe may be lower or higher then the concrete and thats okay. If pipe is higher than the poured concrete simply peel back the top portion of the duct tape and cut back the pipe so its flush with the concrete ensuring not to cut the wire!
If pipe is lower, its okay the light sits on the concrete so its ready for light install.
Connecting and installing the HYVE light. The HYVE (purchased separately) as kits only comes with one.
The HYVE light comes with a speciality connector, simply peel pack the duct tape as per above step if not done already, grab your slack of wire and connect the wire to the connector. Once connected attached light to connector. Place oversize ring (sold separately) to light by unscrewing existing ring making it a oversize ring which ensurs no concrete mistakes or pipe is exposed when installing light.
Final step, place small portion of silicon under ring and place light in pipe, pushing in the wire, connector and light so it fits all in the pipe.
Power on transformer to test lights, if any lights are not on, check connection on wire for that light and ensure the connector was tightened and not loosened when pushing light in.
