Safety is the main factor when deciding on lighting for your swimming pool. Public and private pools must both meet standard safety requirements. Therefore, it’s best to choose the proper type of lighting for your particular swimming pool, spa or BBQ.
Fibre Optic Lighting
Fibre optic lights are not as bright compared to other forms of lighting. Therefore, you will need to purchase more lights in order to reach the desired light intensity and coverage. Fibre optic lights don’t use electricity which makes them very safe around water and are also child friendly. Furthermore, Fibre optic lights draw power from an electrical box located away from the swimming pool. Fibre optic lighting is perfect for providing light for the landscape around your pool, creating a more serene and beautiful environment.
Similar to incandescent lighting, halogen lighting is an older form of lighting available for swimming pools. While they do produce a bright white light and have a longer lifespan than incandescent lighting, it can be difficult to replace or repair a Halogen light because the replacement process must take place outside of the water.
LED lighting is the most up to date technology available for swimming pools, inside your home and also has a multitude of benefits over halogen and incandescent lighting. Previously LEDs did not emit enough light to fully light a pool but that is no longer the case. LED lighting lasts longer and is the preferred type of lighting for all your in home, pool spa & BBQ electrical needs. The benefits of LED lighting are as follows:
- High amount of light output
- Optimal Energy savings
