    People also ask:

    Which lights are used in a swimming pool?

    Halogen and Incandescent lights were always the traditional option for swimming pool lights since they are inexpensive, and produce a consistent output of light. Although these are the expected lights to find in a swimming pool, you would be surprised to find out how fast underwater LED lighting is becoming a frontrunner.

    Can I put LED strip lights in my pool?

    Yes, you can. LED strip lights are actually considered the most favourable option you could choose for swimming pool lighting, because of the safety it provides. LED strip lights are IP68 rated but still, they are protected by a layer of polycarbonate material

    How many lights do you need in a swimming pool?

    There are various factors that play a role when it comes to deciding on the amount of swimming pool lights you need. Taking this statement into consideration, the following general recommendations are not guaranteed to your specific needs but serve more as a guideline.

    • For a 4mx 6m or smaller pool, it is recommended to only install one light. (If you are using only one light for your entire pool, the light needs to be placed at the deep end of the pool. Preferably in a narrow beam). 
    • If you have a 5m x 12m pool, 2 lights are normally recommended.
