All the Options in Pool Lighting
The latest in swimming pool lighting technology is the use of LED inground pool lights that can create rich, vibrant colors and beautiful light shows underwater. Older swimming pool lights use traditional incandescent bulbs to light up the water, this old technology would be like comparing VHS tapes (the incandescent bulbs) to DVD movies (the LED lights).
For those trying to reduce their energy bill, LED pool lights need only 37 watts to create the same light output as traditional incandescent and halogen pool lights do at 161 watts – that’s more than 75% less! And LED spa lights use only 23 watts for the same light output compared to 46 watts for traditional lights…”
Now, what about the life span of pool lights? Which one would last longer? Well, a typical incandescent bulb lasts about 5,000 hours where the LED light is rated to last about 30,000+ hours! This is because LED’s are made from durable materials that run much cooler than regular incandescent bulbs.
Another feature that lead many pool owners to upgrading incandescent pool lights to LED pool lights is that LED lights have the ability to change and fade to different colors where incandescent pool lights cannot. With LED lights, a person can simply flip a switch to activate a beautiful color show display in their swimming pool.
