Conventional lighting for inground swimming pools consist of incandescent or quartz halogen light bulbs that are sealed inside a protective waterproof fixture. These simple white lights are mounted in wall niches—typically made during pool construction—and operate on either low-voltage or standard electrical power. Incandescent pool lights provide a bright illumination and have plastic color lenses that fit over top of them to create a more dramatic effect.
An environmentally-friendly alternative to incandescent pool lights are LED lights, which use light emitting diodes to illuminate the pool. These energy-efficient pool lights use 80 percent less energy than incandescent and halogen light bulbs and last considerably longer—up to 100,000 hours on average; they also tend to be brighter. LEDs have a broader spread of light, which may reduce the amount of lights needed to light the pool. Contact Greecian Pools today at 661-832-0991!
