Types of Pool Lights and Your Lighting Options

As we know, now there are more and more swimming pools around us. Because of the rapid development of economy and improved daily life condition many families even have their own small swimming pools. So that there are various different size swimming pools. And providing appropriate pool lights is really thorny. We will list some points about which lights used in swimming pool. And hope this can give you some idea.

Pool Light Fixture Options

Pool light has a lengthy history and there are four options mainly so far: Incandescent, Halogen, Compact Fluoresecent Light and Led lights. No doubting, decorating some lights around or in the swimming pool will make it well lit. That’s why pool with enough lights looks more gorgeous, attractive. Because bright lighting can make the swimming pool more beautiful, neat and cool.In addition, good light condition can create distinct ambiance and surrounding to your familiy and guests.


Incandescent is the earliest and cheapest swimming pool light bulb before the Compact Fluorescent Light was invented. This kind of bulb gives the lights off by heating tungsten filament. And the lighting is often yellow. So if the pools use this kind of light bulbs, When it turns on,the water often become yellowish and geenish. Since it has cheapest cost, this light often has a little lifespan in the past. Almost you will replace it twice a year and the maintaince cost is very high.The important point is that it does not have enough brightness but high heating radiation. So nowadays, if you still choose incandescent bulb, maybe no one will visit your swimming pool.


Many people still use the halogen bulb since it is brighter and longer life span than the incandescent bulb. It generates the lights from the heating filament. The difference from incandescent bulb is filling with gas.However, it produces more heats and the installation place should wide or open or easy to ventilation. Or the life span will reduce quickly.Often you need to replace it every year and also more expensive than incandescent. The cost is almost double.

Compact Fluorescent Light

Compact Fluorescent light has been more than twenty years since it came out. And lasts till now because of its cheap cost and energy saving characters.Its cold lighting and high CRI give the swimming pool enough brightness and beautiful surroundings. The key weakness is that compact fluorescent light bulb can not be waterproof and should be hiden into the waterproof lamp holder or cases. Otherwise, it will run out very soon. It is longer life than those above light bulbs at times. However, you still need to replace them in a while when they burn out every year. The maintain cost is relatively high. One more problem is that energy saving lamps contain mercury. The accelerated electrons interact with the vaporized mercury atoms to generate ultraviolet light.

LED Lights

LED Lights become one of the main stream swimming pool lights since they popped up. Now led lights are very popular in in-ground pool or above-ground pool.Because They can be brighter than energy saving lamp but only 25% of the power of energy saving bulb lamp.Moreover, swimming pool light can be many colors available, such as red, blue, yellow, green,cool white, warm white,natural white , RGB or multicolor. This will make your swimming pool rich in colors not dull.Thirdly, led bulb can have nice waterproof performance to reach IP68. This can dive into the water directly and easy to replace. Finally, as the technology of led lighting is developping, the cost become less and less. So the mantenance cost is getting lower and lower. More and more people like using pool light led for its high CRI and suitable for many applications such as indoor or outdoor pools. It also supports many different installation method: recessed, wall mounting, suspending, floating or flood standing.

How Much Do Pool LED Lights Cost?

Now as the technology of led lighting develops and the maturing techniques of the sealing of led chip, the price of pool led lights slamp a lot. So led pool lights don’t cost so high as before. That’s why led lights for swimming will get more and more popular.

Which Lights Used in Swimming Pool?

Now more and more led lights can apply in swimming pool. However, not all the led lamps can be suitable for all kinds of swimming pool,especially for in-ground pool. There are several ideas about select which lights used in swimming pool. This passage we only talk about led swimming pool lighting.

Firstly, high waterproof rating. Underwater led pool light should have a good waterproof performance. These led lights could be dived into the pool for a long term. And at least reach IP68 waterproof. Because if they are broken, it’s very difficult to maintain. Even if they can replace, the cost is not small.

Secondly, good quality. What is good quality underwater pool light? How to select underwater pool lights? We often have a solid formula. Good chip led + good quality led driver + waterproof packaging technology = good quality pool light. Good chip led is the core of led lights and it decides the lighting color, life span and the whole atmosphere of the swimming pool. Good quality led driver is the second priority to the pool light. Just like a good soldier, he should have a good gun to give a perfect performance. So it decides the lighting current or brightness control.Led driver also decides the life span of led lights. The led driver often go away before led. While waterproof packaging technology is another key to good quality. It decides if the led lights can reach IP68 waterproof and dive into the water. If the water goes in, that will lead to the damage of led driver.

Thirdly, colorful and high Color render index.What color should the swimming pool be? What CRI is the best? Actually there is no fixed regulation about lighting color or color render index of pool lights. But as our experience, people often use cool white, warm white, Blue or RGB most. But they use less of green or yellow.Because cool white or blue color will give the pools clean, neat and provide people good view under the water while swimming.RGB color can keep the pool magic and amazing.Now remote RGB swimming pool light becomes the new hit in this application. We often suggest CRI>80-85Ra is suitable. Because this cost will be cheaper and also can create a nice color render for the circumstance. 

Fourthly, safety. Is it safe to have lights in a swimming pool? This is the most question often pop up in our heads. Of course, underwater led pool lamps are the safest lights in swimming pool. Because these lamps often works at AC12 or DC12V. There is no harm to our body. Each lights have a long waterproof cable to connect with the junction box. While junction box is  far away from the pool to keep this security.
