A power cable is essential if you want your Otterbine fountain to work. However, since it is not included in the package, you need to buy it separately. And while it is not forbidden to use a cable from a different manufacturer, it is certainly not recommended.
As it is written in the owner's manual: "Only Otterbine factory approved power cord is to be used from the PCC to the aeration unit with no junction boxes or splices." You might ask - why?
There are two reasons. The first one is safety - think whether you really want to use an inferior cable in the water that delivers 115v-460v through a highly conductive element. You never know what could happen with it - do you want to be held responsible for an accident if it happens? The second reason is performance. If proper power isn't delivered to the aerator, the product can malfunction, fail prematurely, or even not operate at all.
The Otterbine power cables are produced from a special material called thermoset. Because of that, the product hardens under the direct application of heat. Once it happens, the cable cannot be re-softened by heat.
