Why choose LED In-Ground Pool Lights

Traditional pool lighting utilized incandescent lights, but today, LED pool lights are the preferred technology due to their durability, performance and efficiency.

LED pool lights can last up to 10 times longer than incandescent lights - greatly reducing the replacement and maintenance costs associated with incandescent pool lighting. Additionally, some smaller LED lights can have thinner diameter chords which can allow for easier replacement and reduced labor costs.

The amount of power a pool light uses to provide a given amount of light is measured in watts. Incandescent pool lights generally come in 100-, 300-, and 500-watt bulbs, while LED pool lights only require 18-65 watts of power to provide the same luminescence. Meaning, LED pool lights can use up to 87% less energy than their incandescent counterparts, resulting in significant savings on electrical costs.

While the upfront cost of incandescent lights may be appealing, LED lights come with a lower overall cost since they feature a longer and less expensive operational life.

To break down the cost comparison, assume one 42-watt LED pool light and its equivalent of one 300-watt incandescent pool light run eight hours a day with an electricity cost of $0.15/kW an hour.

45-watt LED pool light 42-watt LED bulb x 8 hrs x 365 days = 122 kWh/ year at $0.15/ kWh = $18.00/year

300-watt incandescent pool light 300-watt incandescent bulb x 8 hours x 365 days = 876 kWh/ year at $0.15/kWh = $131.00/light

That’s a savings of $114/year using LED lights.

Niched vs. Nicheless Pool Lighting Options

“Niche” refers to the pool light housing. Niched pool lights are generally larger in size and require advanced planning for placement during the rebar installation phase. "Nicheless" lights are smaller and don’t require a niche or special accommodation with the rebar.

You can sufficiently light most swimming pool designs with either one or two niched pool lights. Alternately, you can use multiple nicheless lights with little to no difference in energy consumption. Plus, with more lights spread throughout the pool, more even light distribution will be attained — making it an aesthetic decision.

View our Light Design Guide to see how nicheless lights can light different features of the pool.

Pool Lighting Design Flexibility

Both niched and nicheless pool lights provide brilliant illumination for your pool, but due to their size, nicheless pool lights enable greater flexibility for more elaborate pool designs.

For example, nicheless lights can be installed in shallow sun shelves, narrow walls, under pedestals or installed vertically in grottos and negative edge basins for added lighting effects.
