What do you need to do to convert a 220V waterfall picture to 110V?

User Avatar
You need to acquire a 110V to 220V step-up transformer. Just be sure to take into consideration the frequency of the AC voltage. I believe the UK runs at 50 hz. and the US is at 60 hz. What that means to you is that the waterfall will run faster here in the States. Also be sure that the transformer's output will match the power consumption of the device you're going to power with it. Do they make such a device? Yes, but you can also use a 220V to 110V step-down transformer in reverse. (Providing it's just a transformer.)
