I have just bought a new house, and want to activate the pump for the water fountain.
The pump seems to run an insulated electrical line back to the house, but I am not able to find any indoor switches to turn it on.
I am not very knowledgeable about how fountain works. I have also thought about the possibility that fountains don't require switches and I just needed to replace the old pump.
The previous owner left it in a neglected state, and doesn't want to answer any questions.
Any input/suggestion is appreciated!
Thanks guys. I did look around the house and was not able to find any outdoor outlet. However there is this indoor switch in the basement. Previous attempt does not activate the pump, but this could be due to the pump itself being defective as per blacksmith37's comment. I will try to detach the pump from the wire, turn on the indoor switch again, then measure the wire's voltage using a multimeter. If there is a current, then I know for sure that the pump is the issue and get a new one.
Will provide an update once I get to it.
