When pool lights are installed correctly, they make your swimming pool look so much more beautiful, while also allowing you to use your pool after dark. If you’ve ever thought about installing your own pool lights, we advise against this idea. DIY pool lighting installations can run into quite a few pitfalls. Today, we’ll go over why installing your own pool lights might not be the best idea.
It’s Not as Safe
Electrical work is going to have its safety risks, especially when you’re doing electrical work around water. You have to be sure that your wires are grounded and free of any water that could otherwise become a hazard to you. This will be difficult to accomplish safely without expertise installing pool lights, which is why we recommend letting a professional electrician handle the task on your behalf.
It Can Be Expensive
Sometimes, DIY projects are done in an attempt to save money. This sounds good on paper, but there are ways that this plan can backfire. When pool lighting isn’t properly installed, you can run into many issues that range in severity, from power outages, to even death! Even if you avoid severe consequences, you’ll still need to hire someone to correct your mistakes, which means you’ll end up spending the very money you intended on saving. While it’s not fun paying the cost upfront, hiring a professional pool light installation company will be worth it for you in the long run.
