We can swap that out. Looking at this light post, though it's in pretty rough shape, you can see the lights cracking antique brass, I don't know what that matches, but it's all rusty, hey, wait. A little shaky. It's seen its better days. The light bulb is actually keeled over.No, you know what I think they replaced the whole post. Oh just start over again sounds great all right. Well, let's get some tools and get that post out of there sounds good all right, cool all right. We've located the circuit breaker inside we've shut the power off. Let's get this shrub out of the way real carefully, we'll put it back afterward, very hot okay! Put it right in there! Now, let's get the most out of here I'll hold that over there.
Okay, all right: let's take that away. I'm gonna pull the post now all right. Joel here is your new lamppost. So it's a standard three-inch diameter and it's seven feet. Tall it'll accept any light fixture and it's all aluminum, so it'll never rust on straight and I've brought this light fixture. What I figured was we could match the roof lines of your house right here and also the wrought iron railing. The real clean look is right here. What do you think? Oh, it's beautiful, I think it's a great match for the house. Great, I just don't see a light bulb in there. How does it light up? There is no light bulb, it's actually a diode.
This is it right here. It operates on standard 120, volts and you'll never have to change it and we'll give you a lot of light all right like that. So that goes right in here. Like that, do you think looks great all right? We need to get the wire up the post. That's what this hole in the side is for all right got it we're using a special concrete made for posts. You pour it in the hole dry, you don't have to premix it, and then you add water to activate it all right. That's good! All! Right! Joel! We've left the concrete set for about an hour, give it a tug, that's pretty sturdy, all right. Let's get this light wired right in all right, so this is a diffuser right here and this will soften the LED diode real nicely all right. Let's get the top of it put on alright.
Now, let's get rid of the old switch. This box is not to code, someone cut the back of it off exposing the wood. I've got to replace it with a weatherproof box and, while I'm at it I'll pull a new wire up for the new switch instead of using a manual switch, I'm using an astronomical time, clock it'll automatically adjust itself as the days get longer and shorter. It goes on at dusk, off the don't, never have to touch it.
