What types of pool lighting do you have to choose from?
On our website you will find both halogen and LED pool lights, with white light or RGB functionality.
In the past, halogen lamps were mainly used to light pools, but the popularity of LED underwater lighting has grown rapidly in recent years. This is because LED lights last many times longer, consume only 10% of the power used by halogen lights, and produce even more light. Although the prices of LED lights can be somewhat higher, this form of pool lighting is an investment you can enjoy for a long time to come.
Moreover, would you like to have the option of shrouding your pool in atmospheric colors? If you choose RGB pool lights, you can use a remote control or your smartphone to decide which hue you prefer. Of course, white light is also an option with these LED lights! However, is colored light not for you at all? Then take a look among our range of white-colored pool lights, from warm white to cold white.
What to look out for when installing pool lights
If your pool is directly adjacent to your patio, you will want to install your pool lights so that you are not blinded by the light. This is because water is a powerful reflector, so improperly placed lights could quickly start shining into your eyes.
Make sure you never install your pool lights directly opposite your deck, but preferably attach them to the nearest pool wall. In doing so, a depth of 50 to 100 cm is recommended, with a golden mean of about 75 cm.
When does pool lighting require a transformer?
Pool lighting requires a transformer when these lamps of themselves use more than 300 watts and 12 volts. This is the case, for example, if you still decide to work with lamps that usually use 230 volts.
After all, pool lights are installed under water, so you want to avoid any contact between electrical components and the water. Otherwise, you run the risk of electrocution. For such cases, there are special pool transformers that are designed to transform the standard 230 volts from your outlet into low volts (6, 12 or 24 volts). As mentioned earlier, using low voltage is safe, so you can enjoy your beautifully lit pool to the fullest and without worry.
How does pool lighting installation work?
How your pool lights should be installed depends greatly on the product you choose. In any case, make sure that your power supply is turned off before you get started to avoid any risk of shock. In addition, carefully read and follow the instructions provided. Not only will this ensure that the installation of your pool lights is done as safely as possible, you will also be guaranteed the optimal result afterwards.
