For over 50 years, lighting has been used in pools to enhance their beauty and functionality. However, most lighting has been either halogen or incandescent lights which are often inadequate, dangerous, and low quality. LED lighting has been around for quite some time, yet their use in pools is still relatively new. If you are a pool owner or are installing a pool and want to add or upgrade your lighting source, read on to learn more.
Why LED is the Best Option
LED pool lighting is brighter and more cost efficient than either halogen or incandescent lights. Switching from halogen to LED can save approximately $1,000 over 10 years. Plus, LED lights last about 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Longer lasting lights also mean lower costs in replacements.
Additionally, LED pool lighting provides multiple levels of visibility in and around your pool. When night swimming, you want to make sure your pool and the deck are adequately illuminated to prevent accidents and reduce risks and ensure you can see all the way to the bottom of the pool. Proper lighting keeps you from hitting your head on objects or the walls the pool when swimming at night. LED pool lighting also adds beauty to your pool making it a feature for entertainment and relaxation.
