In The Swim Knowledge Pool: In-Ground Pool Lights
In-Ground Pool Lights Will Light the Night
If you’re looking to update your in-ground pool lighting, take a look at the Hayward pool lights or a very popular Hayward Universal ColorLogic LED pool lights that fit into nearly any light niche. For in-ground pools with Pentair wall niches, choose the Pentair Amerlite pool light for the right fit and look, or the Intellibrite 5G LED lights are your best bet. For a quick upgrade, get the Pentair LED Color Bulb Kit to convert a regular in-ground pool light to a color LED pool light!
In-Ground Pool Light Selection
- • Step One: Remove the lamp from the wall by loosening the screw located at 12 o'clock on the light ring. Pull up on deck.
- • Step Two: From the label on the lamp or the cord, find Voltage (12V or 120V) and the Make and Model of the pool light.
- • Step Three: Measure from the pool light niche to the light junction box, add 7 feet for the total length of cord needed.
- • Step Four: Order a new inground pool light, with the same voltage and a cord that is longer than measured.
Pentair light niches fit pool lights made by American Products, Jacuzzi, Jandy, Pac-Fab, Purex, Sta-Rite and SwimQuip. Hayward light niches fit ColorLogic, CrystaLogic, DuraLite and AstroLite models. Hayward Universal ColorLogic LED pool lights will fit into nearly any light niche. Pentair Lamps are 3/8" smaller than Hayward lamps, on the front outside edge. Hayward fits Pentair in most cases, but Pentair pool lights are slightly too small for Hayward niches.
