Underwater Pool Lighting: Past, Present and Future

2018-09-30

Underwater LED pool lighting is a successful way to add to the wow factor of our pools. Pool lighting can gain a pool’s visual effect, make the darkness bright. With the development of underwater lighting technology, it is becoming more and more important to understand the professional terms and industry trends in order to successfully guide the confusing world of underwater pool lighting.


In general, design of underwater lighting for swimming pool has mainly depended on watts per square foot of water surface. Rated powers for pool lights, however, are almost dumped, since incandescent lights are becoming a thing of the past. The greatest and latest lighting trend taking charge of the pool industry is LED lighting. LED lights use much less energy.


As we know, wattage is a measure of how much energy a pool light uses. But in fact, it has nothing to do with the actual brightness of a pool light. As time goes on, consumers incline to gain a general idea of how bright a 40-watt pool light is compared to a 60-watt one. Due to this, people tend to connect the brightness of a light with its rated power. This method for comparing brightness is useful for incandescent lights. However, when it comes to types of lights like LEDs, this method is useless.


Actually, the correct unit of measurement to use when measuring brightness is lumens. A lumen measures the amount of light that is emitted from a light source. One lumen is equal to the amount of light emitted from a standard birthday candle from one foot away. The ultimate goal is to produce the most light (lumens) with the least amount of energy (watts).



With the advances of technology, keeping up with speed on industry terms and trends is very important, even when it comes to items like lighting. Understanding of industry standards for lighting levels will lead owners to make right decisions when illuminating their pool. Therefore, we should keep learning to ensure we have the latest industry knowledge available to us.
