LED Swimming Pool Lights

When upgrading to LED Pool Lights, there is some information you should consider.

LED pool lights are growing in popularity and are being used in almost every industry from housing to swimming pool and cars. Though Halogen lights are cheaper, the swimming pool range typically have a few problems like failing light globes and leaking water seals that do not apply to the LED range of swimming pool lights.

LED pool lighting technology has advanced more than any other swimming pool technology in the past 10 years!

LED lights are now cheaper to manufacture, give out more light and use less energy than halogen lights. Making LED lights more appealing to anyone wanting to install lights during their pool renovation.

Can new LED lights be installed into an existing pool?

For swimming pool renovations a surface mounted light is usually installed on the surface of the pool interior.

When installing new LED lights into an existing swimming pool, it is far easier to use the existing lighting conduits, however if you want a new light in a different location we can core drill from the top of the pool shell down the wall for new light locations, so new lights can be installed in different locations of the swimming pool.

Pool Light Safety & Transformers

Some older swimming pools still have 240v cable leading into the swimming pool! This is because the transformer used to be built in at the back of the light unit, meaning that while the globe may have used less voltage (like 36v) there was still a 240v cable sealed into the light under water! If you have one of these, do not try to uninstall it yourself, an electrician is required by law.

Fortunately LED pool lights typically use only 12V compared to a house (240V) and the new transformers now are normally installed near the pool equipment.

A pool light transformer is used to reduce the voltage from 240v to 12v. (Depending on your pool light)

Pool lights might use different voltages such as 36V, 32V, 24V, 22V and 12V, however most new LED lights are 12v, anything above 12v requires an electrician for installation.
