The hardest thing about pool ownership for many people is the off-season and impatiently waiting for the chance to open it back up and use it again. One way to try to tame that impatience is to make plans for the pool season. If your pool light situation wasn’t quite what you wanted last year, this is a good time to plan for improvements for the coming season. Here are some fun pool light facts to get you started.
Pool Lights Are For Safety And Aesthetics
Having lighting in and around your pool is essential for safety so that no one falls in because they didn’t see the pool. However, the twinkling lights under the water and interesting lighting around the pool can also help make the space more peaceful and serene. As long as you have the system annually inspected for safety, there is no major danger posed by a professionally installed pool light.
Pool Lights Can Be Added
Even if you don’t have the lights you want in your current pool (for either in-ground or above-ground), there are ways to add new lighting options, requiring different levels of construction based on what you have and what you want. Reach out to a trusted pool contractor to learn about the ways that you can add lights to your already installed pool. Depending on the extend of construction need to realize your pool lighting dreams, it might also be a good opportunity to retile or refinish an older pool and knock out two projects with one construction event.
There Are Different Types Of Pool Lights
There are three major types of pool lighting on the market. Most lights are either LED, halogen, or fiberoptic. LED lighting is energy-efficient and long-lasting, but tends to cost more upfront. Halogen lighting is very bright and cost-effective, which is why it has been the main type of pool lighting on the market for years. Fiberoptic lighting is the only choice if you don’t want to have to change bulbs in the pool – the bulbs and power are housed outside of the pool in a separate area and the fiberoptic cables carry the light.
