Wire guage for low volt landscape lighting

Posted by crabapplemcn (My Page) on

I am doing some outdoor lighting and wanted to get advice on the size wire to use. I have several short zones that I will use 12 ga for. I have a 100 ft zone (100 watts) and a 150 ft zone (100 w) that I plan on using 10 ga for. Then I have a 210 ft run (100 w) that I was unsure of whether to use 10 or 8 ga? any thoughts or suggestions on my plans. Thanks
