  • How to Light a Pool?
    How to Light a Pool?
    2019-11-05

    What you need to know to light a pool How to light my pool? That is a question that you often ask us when it comes to giving a touch of light to your pool. Maybe you need to take a night bath and want to have some good spotlights that facilitate visibility, as well as giving your pool an aesthetic touch. Or, you need to have the necessary lighting in a pool that is not outside. Therefore, from Waking Pools we offer you a basic guide on how to light a pool and what different types of spotlights exist. How many spotlights do I need to illuminate my pool? As a general rule it could be established that we will need a waterproof  LED pool light for every 20 m² of water surface that the pool we want to illuminate has. According to this example, for a pool of 5m x 4m it would be enough to place a single focus. How high to install the spotlights? In order to facilitate the maintenance and possible repairs of the projectors of our pool, the optimal location of the LED underwater light could be 70cm from the top of the pool. At this point, they will correctly illuminate the inside of the pool; In addition, they will always be accessible from outside the pool and it will not be necessary to empty it completely in order to access them. Pool near home If the pool is near your house, it would be convenient to place the spotlights facing away from the residence to avoid glare. What kind of spotlights exist to illuminate pools? They can be distinguished and / or classified according to the following factors: Depending on the type of lamp: Today we can basically find projectors that work with halogen lamps (conventional lighting) and others that work through LEDs (LED lighting). According to the fixing system: We can also distinguish between those that are embedded in the wall by means of a fixing niche or extra-planes that are installed on the surface of the wall. According to the material of the pool: Another aspect to consider in choosing a spotlight will be the type of pool to which it will be installed. In this way we will find spotlights for liner pool and, on the other hand, spotlights for concrete pools.

    What to Consider Before Buying Pool Light?

    Light types There are three major pool light types: LED, Halogen, and Incandescent. The older incandescent bulbs are like the standard bulbs you use in your home which only provide a white light. The Halogen lights are more compact and use less power than standard lights, but they will only produce a white light. The LED bulbs are the newest lights on the market, and they come with many advantages. They are cheaper to use since they use less energy, although they are more expensive to purchase at the beginning. Some LED bulbs also feature up to five colors of light in different programs. Voltage: 12V vs. 120V Either 12V or 120V will be used to operate the lights for your pool. Depending on where you live, you may have a local code that requires the lower voltage of 12V light while other areas allow the 120V light to be used, so it is important to find out what your local code says. Power Measured by watts, power has the general rule of thumb that it costs more to run a light that has a higher wattage. LED lights tend to run between 30W and 90W while incandescent lights run between 100W to 500W. This means that LED pool lights are more efficient, and they reduce your electricity costs in the long run. Brightness The brightness of a bulb does not vary from of a 12V and 120V. Lumen is usually the way brightness is measured, but it is published inconsistently. Basically, the higher the wattage for incandescent lights, the brighter the light will be. It is harder to figure out the brightness of LED underwater lights, but generally, they will be brighter for a higher wattage. Compatibility Niches are installed when the pool is built and the contractor places permanent fixtures into the pool’s sides to hold light fixtures. There are some lights that are compatible with any niches, but in most cases, lights are not going to be compatible unless you use the original manufacturer lights the niche was created for. Bulb Replacement You can easily replace most halogen and incandescent light fixtures. If you want to put in a color-changing light bulb, you will find that you can only convert a couple of incandescent light fixtures, but the rest of them will need a complete light fixture change, although there is a color light bulb conversion for halogen lights. LED’s use about a quarter of the energy that is used by a standard bulb, and they last 40 times longer. They emit deep rich colors that are eco-friendly, but they do cost more than a standard bulb at their initial purchase. If you factor in the savings over time, LED replacement bulb become a more cost effective option than other light bulbs. Conclusion When you start shopping for new lights for your pool, you will see that there are a lot of choices when it comes to lighting your pool and the surrounding landscape. With all the options, this can be a tough choice, but if you do your research you should be able to find the best pool lights on the market for your needs.

    Types of  Pool Light There are three types of pool lights, LED lights, halogen and incandescent lights. Incandescent bulbs are the same as the standard lights you use in your home and that only provide white light. Halogen lights, on the other hand, are more compact and consume less energy than standard lights, but they also only produce white light.   Instead, LED bulbs are the newest lights on the market and come with many advantages. They are expensive to buy, but cheaper in the long run, since they consume less energy. Some LED lights also have several light colors with different settings. Halogen: Halogen bulbs have been very popular for spas and swimming pools, which require an excellent way to improve lighting and reduce energy expenditure. They are still used a lot and are still chosen by many users.   Compact fluorescent: Compact fluorescent bulbs consume less energy than normal bulbs and last six times longer. Unfortunately, they are sensitive to turn on and off, so they are prone to fail. In addition, its lighting capacity is not very strong.   LED: LED lights use approximately a quarter of the energy used by a normal bulb, and last 40 times longer. Surface mount pool light emit intense and ecological colors, but cost more than a standard bulb. But if energy savings are taken into account, they become the most profitable option. Power The watts in the lights is the amount of energy needed for its operation. LED lights tend to work between 10W and 60W, while other types of lights, such as incandescent lights, operate between 100W to 500W. It means that LED lights are more efficient and reduce long-term electricity expenses.   Brightness While incandescent lights have more brightness consuming more energy, LED PAR56 pool lights are somewhat more complex. Its system manages to achieve a very bright light with the minimum energy expenditure.   Cable Length Some lights come with a power cord which must be connected to a power source for it to work. They will come in different lengths from 0.5 meters to 4 meters, or more at times. When you buy your waterproof  LED lights, make sure the cable is long enough to connect to a power source.   Installation Some lights must be installed when the pool is built, or a professional must be hired to install the lighting fixtures on the pool walls. Our wall-mount pool light is so flat that you can simply install them once your pool is built or assembled. Remote Control Like the common lights, these can be turned on and off from switches or control boxes, in addition to having color change and programming functions. A light with remote control will facilitate the use of it, without having to approach the switches or control boxes.

    Tips for Your Home Pool

    Whether you install lights in your new pool or just update your current pool, you should consider the lighting effect. Adding LED pool lights to your pool not only has different lighting effect but also provides safer environment. As a manufacturer with many years’ experience, we will help you on lighting effect or pool design. We have many received feedbacks from customers and our engineers suggestions can let you avoid some mistake. Let’s discuss how good LED lighting effect can transform your pool into incredible experience. 1. Now let’s get down to shapes. In a smaller geometric shape pool with limited intrusions, a single light is sufficient. You should install the light at the end of the pool for better illumination length. In mid-size pool,  two lights pointing at one another will eliminate any shadows and make the bottom of your pool appear smooth and mark-free. When it comes to illuminating the width of the pool, lights can be placed in a row and spaced evenly across, which will give you a stunning effect. 2. We use underwater LED lights because they produce the brightest light. However, you don’t want them shining directly in people’s eyes. In order to create a relaxing and inviting backyard environment, we recommend the lights being strategically placed so they are not illuminating your seating areas. 3. A general rule for illumination is to ensure that these lights are installed at a maximum depth of 300mm from the top of the pool, as steps and ledges are usually installed at a depth of 540mm. Mounting lights above the bench height ensures the area will be illuminated. There are so many creative possibilities bringing your pool to life with special lighting. We’ll provide you with some great ideas and tips on how to make it all happen. Just communicate to any member of our team.
