Pool Lights are available for concrete, vinyl and fibreglass pools and spas. Pool Lights not only allow you use your pool safely at night but your backyard looks great.
Almost all Pool lights are now LED instead of halogen. LED lights use less power, are as bright as the halogen type lights and don't require globe changes.
LED lights have the advantage over Halogen pool lights as they don't heat up. This constant heating and cooling draws water into the older type lights.
Lights for New Pools
Pool lights for new swimming pools include a cable. If you’re building a new pool we recommend flush lights as they look fantastic and smaller in diametre. You will require certain elements of the lights at the early stages of construction. Contact us for advice.
Wall Mounted Lights
It is unusual to use wall mounted lights for new pools and are for existing lights. Wall mounted pool lights use a bracket attached to the pool wall which the light attaches to. This means that the light protudes 40 to 50mm into the pool. Wall mounted lights are sometimes used as steps by children which inevitably breaks the brackets. It is also common for pool cleaners to get stuck on them. Wall mounted lights just don't look as good as a flush pool light.
Fibreglass and Vinyl swimming pools mostly use these types of lights but new model lights for these surfaces are becoming more low profile.
Flush Mounted Pool Lights
In newly constructed concrete pools flush pools lights are best. Planning is required prior to concreting. A light housing (bucket) needs to be concreted into the pool structure. This housing holds the pool light and allows the light to be inside the pool wall.
