Frequently Asked Questions

LumaBase® Plastic Candle Holder
Can I fill the LumaBase with sand?
Sure! Filling the LumaBase with sand provides the necessary weight and can remain in the base for use year after year.

Will the LumaBase burn?
No! There is an additive to the plastic to make it non-flammable. However, it will melt in direct flame.

Will the LumaBase break if the water inside freezes?
The LumaBase is made of the same material as a plastic milk carton. Freezing may bulge the LumaBase, but should not affect the use. Leave a little air in the LumaBase for expansion during freezing.

How close should I place the Luminaria’s to one another?
It can vary. We suggest using the lines on sidewalks as a guide, 1 – 2 feet along your walkway, and 4 – 5 feet around your pool.

Can I store the used LumaBase with water inside?
Yes! We suggest that you add a drop of dish detergent to each to avoid water discoloration.

Can I use other candles in the LumaBase?
Yes! The LumaBase is designed to accept three different size candles.

Can I use votive candles in the LumaBase?
No! Avoid soft, low temperature burning waxed candles. The wax melts very quickly and runs off before burning.

Are the standard bags flammable?
Yes, some of them! They are made of paper. Our “Flame Resistant” Bags will extinguish the flame, but can burn under direct flame. We also offer standard paper bags.

Unplug the cord, and remove the unlit bulb and crew it back into the socket carefully and completely. Most often the bulb is not lit because it is not screwed in completely making contact.
