    hi,
    would like to know if i could use 1.5mm twin and earth in my garden for lighting it. i would buy the 12v garden lights and a transformer but use twin and earth to wire it up. I would put the cable in mdpe pipe to keep the cable good. It would have splash proof boxes and cable glands. would this work? :confused:

    Yes it will work.

    If the wire run is very long from the transformer to the bulbs, you might get a small voltage drop (you only have 12), but other than that, it will be fine.

    Ensure the fuse is wired beside and on the output of the transformer
