Things to Know Before Buying LED Pool Light

2019-07-15

If you’re thinking about upgrading to LED Pool Lights, there are some things you should know before you buy. In this article, I hope to give you some useful information you need to know about buying an LED pool light.


LED pool lighting technology has come a long way in the recent years. LED Pool lights are now cost-effective to produce, have high light output and use a fraction of the amount of energy as traditional lights. There really is no good reason not to choose LED lights.


LED swimming pool lights are composed of many LEDs inside them.  Many customers think that lights containing more LEDs must be brighter.

This is not necessarily the case.

You can’t just compare the number of LEDs in a light or the power (Watts). The overall brightness of the light also depends on the efficiency of the actual LEDs themselves – a factor called luminous efficiency. This is a measure of how efficiently the LED uses power (Watts). The higher the luminous efficiency, the more efficient the LED is. Meaning, a 20 watt LED light may have the same brightness as a 40 watt LED light, if the LEDs are twice as efficient.

Quality LED pool lights illuminate the pool much more evenly than halogen lights. Halogen lights give more focused light (think of a torch beam), whereas LED pool lights spread the light more giving a glowing effect.

LED pool lights are available with different beam angles. This means some lights will spread the light 180 degrees, providing a broad coverage. Others will provide a narrow beam, which is useful for focusing light on one area to highlight a feature or create an effect.

What you choose depends on the overall lighting effect you are trying to achieve.  Choose a wide beam angle (150-180 degrees) if you’re trying to light a large area. If you’re lighting a feature item, choose a light with a narrow beam angle.
