Firstly, maintenance is the key for keeping all pool equipment healthy. This includes having properly balanced water all year round as this prevents corrosion occurring within the light from unstable chemicals levels.

Second to this, but just as important, is ensuring your lights are turned on for 15 minutes minimum per week all year round. Doing this helps to eliminate the build-up of moisture inside the light cavity that occurs when the light is not in use.
• Use quality brands like our LED pool lights.
• If your pool still has halogen lights, switch them on for an hour each week, even during the winter months, as a lack of use can damage the globes.
• Dark-coloured pools need more lights than light-coloured pools.
• When positioning lights into a new pool, consider accessibility for future servicing.
• Ensure there is a sufficient amount of lighting for night-time safety.
