No one wants to swim in a dark pool at night, so you need lighting if you want to extend the hours your pool can be open. Have you considered LED lighting? Here’s why it’s a great asset for any pool owner.
About LED Lighting
Light bulbs are not created equal! They all use energy to produce wattage, but that’s where the similarities end.
A 100-watt incandescent bulb uses electricity flowing through an interior filament to produce light (and heat). For every hour it’s on, it uses 100 watts of energy.
There is no filament in LED pool lights. Instead, electrical current passes through a microchip, which illuminates the LED. They have built-in heat sinks to keep them cool, while also enhancing their brightness and useful life. These lights are much more efficient than incandescent bulbs.
LED Lighting Costs Less to Operate
Owning a pool isn’t cheap, but using LED lights in your pool is! Because they use fewer watts than traditional light bulbs, LED swimming pool lights are pretty affordable. In fact, they only cost pennies per day to operate. Each time you switch out an incandescent bulb for an LED bulb is an investment that you’ll get back thanks to huge energy savings.
Unlimited Colors for your Inground Swimming Pool
LED pool lighting is available in every color of the rainbow. Some are even connected to apps so the colors can change as you desire. LED lighting makes it fun to sit poolside to enjoy the ambiance, but it’s also fun to take a nighttime swim surrounded by all of your favorite colors.
