There have been some significant technological advancements in the swimming pool industry within the last 10 or so years. These advancements have made products better and allowed pool owners more time to just enjoy their pools. One of these advancements comes in the form of the underwater light for your pool.
Years ago there were only large, bulky, metallic lights available, and they were wired into a 120 v circuit. It has become very evident that this is not the best way to make a light for a swimming pool. One downside is that these lights are not the brightest. They only light up a small area of the pool. The other problem is that the gasket system of these lights often failed resulting in water leaking into the light housing. If you know even the littlest thing about electricity, you know that water and electricity are not two things that work well together. This fact has resulted in some tragic events taking place. Even to this day we hear about people being injured or killed by faulty pool lights. Zodiac has taken the steps to remedy these issues.
They have created a new style of pool light that is not only brighter but it also runs on low voltage, eliminating the risk of electrocution. In addition to that they have the capability of changing colors. The Jandy Pro Series Nicheless LED light delivers bright, efficient, and reliable lighting to your pool for up to 50,000 hours of enjoyment. These lights are designed to be smaller and can be installed just 4 inches below the waters surface. These lights are also 100% non-metallic so there is no need for bonding.
There is also no requirement for a traditional niche and they can be installed in a standard return fitting. This will allow homeowners some piece of mind knowing that they don’t have a enormous hole in the liner where the light is cut in. They offer 9 vibrant colors and 5 different light shows. The amazing thing is that they can be hooked up to Zodiac’s RS or Z4 automation systems and if you have more than one light in your pool they can be synced together so that they are always on the same color. They can also be controlled by Zodiac’s iAquaLink. This allows the pool owner to control the lights through their smart phone or any other internet capable device. If that is not something you are interested in they can also be controlled with a regular light switch. However if that is the way you want to go, be advised that in order to change the color or light show you will have to turn the light off and on. The colors change by killing and restoring the power to them. They are so small that for larger pools, in order to have adequate lighting you may need more than one. However they are safer than traditional pool lights.
Another benefit is that they are fully compatible with Jandy Pro Series Standard LED lights. These are larger LED lights that still function on less power than the traditional white lights. Again these two styles of lights can be used in conjunction with one another and synced together through their automation systems. As stated above they will last for up to 50,000 hours. However if there should be a problem then they can be easily replaced and you won’t have to break the bank to do so.
The right lighting can transform even the most ordinary looking pool into a work of art. For more information on Jandy Pro Series Nicheless LED pool lights visit www.zodiacpoolsystems.com.
