Introduction

This guide will show you how to refill the dancing water speakers through the bottom water plug. These water speakers have a tendency to leak through the bottom water plug. This guide will show you step-by-step how to take the speakers apart so you can replace the water plug with super glue. The reason why we replace it with super glue is the glue works to seal the hole a lot more effectively and it's a simple process.

Parts

No parts required.

You will need to have a clean work space, water dancing speakers, super glue, mineral water, and Phillips screw driver ready. You will need to have a clean work space, water dancing speakers, super glue, mineral water, and Phillips screw driver ready.

Once the four screws are taken out you will need to slide the bottom piece from the water canister.

I have got the same speakers, and You should refill it with water but one inch of the top so almost full. Just correcting your stupid mistake You smarty pants. Thank You!!!

On the bottom of the water canister you will see a hole where the water was inserted. There will be a black plug covering the hole. Using your screw driver you can pry the plug out.

I tried prying it but it didn't work and I ended up breakin the little space it was in.

Mine didn't have a plug, and I had to use a very small bit to drill the hole open. added water and glued. works okay, except it makes a random 'grinding' noise and the liquid in the refilled one doesn't cascade like the original - almost as if the original liquid was not water - at least not plain water. Any thoughts?

it's mineral oil

Just bought these speakers; there's only about an 1/8" of water in them. Took it apart with your instructions and found water plug... It's tiny! How did you add water? A syringe? Also in the picture the water tank appears full, you say add one inch. We don't understand (duh), could you explain please?

Only the inch of water in the bottom of the water tank is shot up into the air in the water tank.

After the water is filled to approximately one inch. Super glue the hole shut and let dry.

When the glue is dry slide speaker back on to water canister.

  • Once they are put together place back panel on and insert the four screws.

  • repeat steps 2 through 6 on second speaker.

the pump is defective how to replace

I couldnt get plug out either so I drilled a hole in back and filled it with mineral water and sealed it with a small strip of scotch tape and duct tape on top of that in case I had to get back in. It works, but now it looks different. Sometimes the water clings to the inside and it looks a little foggy. Is it mineral water, or mineral oil? If it leaks again I'll prob try the oil.

The original liquid has a lower surface tension than water. I used odorless mineral spirits.

If the pump is noisy, try a drop of oil in the motor.

My speakers keep spraying even though their is no music playing, is that a good thing?

I got one of these for Christmas at five BELoW for $5. I figured out why they were selling it. Someone lost the black plug on the bottom that plugs the hole and they used hot glue to fix it, but it still leaks somewhere. I will probably drill a hole in the top or back and fill it with water and cover it up and then use some sealing tape to make sure it stops leaking.

Try some JB weld on the area

My water dance speaker still has water. My problem is the water isn't splashing about with the music, any more. What would cause that to stop?

lolirunninglate, you have broken pumps in your speaker, but i don't know how to fix that.

E. Cooper - Reply

I read somewhere u can use baby oil to is that true. My son got some but there is nothing in there so I have to fill them.

Michelle W - Reply

lorirunninglate u would have to get a new motor for the or both speakers if neither work there is no pumps it's three magnetics that are attached to the motor with a wheel try looking up on YouTube on how to replace the motor

Regarding identifying the liquid:

Based on a search for the MSDS, the MSDS (ref: http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/blog/wp-conte... ) calls it "Artware Oil C-300", with a viscosity of 3.6 mPa.s (aka 3.6 cSt).

Mineral oil comes in MANY viscosities, the closest I could find would be Peneteck, the second closest would be 4463 oil (ref http://www.hollandchemicals.com/Document... ).

Can't find a seller for "Artware Oil C-300", "Peneteck", or "4463 oil" yet. I expect there would be other mineral oils in this viscosity range as well. I haven't found a source for oil yet, but hope this helps in the search.

Will update / add comment if I find a mineral oil in this range.

I'm trying to fill my second speaker and when I open it the plug is like 1/4 of an inch down and I can't get to it.

Tyler unnecesary - Reply

I dont get it - its not water or mineral water , but oil - mineral oil of a fairly low viscosity so that it runs easily but doesnt stick. So exactly what is it, and when it leaked, where did it go to as if it is oil it wont evaporate.

When I opened the box only one speaker had water in it. So I found these directions for filling it. Both speakers had broken pieces in them. When I opened the back of the empty one, there wasn't a plug. Instead, there was a big thick layer of apoxy or something. When I finally got enough of the glue/apoxy stuff off, I put the water in and glued it back closed. Then, while trying to get it back together, three wires broke lose. My husband said he would try to sodder the wires back in place when he got a chance but I'm not optimistic it will work. Luckily, I didn't pay anything for the piece of crap. It was given to me. My husband said if he couldn't fix it, he would buy me another one......don't think I really want to chance money on buying another one though.

I also had trouble removing the plug (I resorted to pushing it in) and eventually broke a wire in the process. The oil that had escaped had made the inside of the bottom piece kind of sticky.

At this point, its no longer worth trying to salvage it. The other one still works, but it looks silly with just one. It was a neat little gift, but very cheaply made…

Can you just use regular water?

April Lopez - Reply

Can’t I just put a hole in the top and put tap water in it because I’m too trashy to go through all this &&^&^$ effort
