Swimming Pool Lights: Which Are Right for You?

Adding some lights to your pool is a great way to enjoy swimming whether it’s day or night. Pool lights can be an expensive purchase, so it’s important to understand what’s available and what work best in your pool. Here’s what you should know:

LED pool lights

LED lights are the most popular choice today and the one found in most pools. There are plenty of color options to choose from and they have good energy efficiency. LEDs are also very bright, so you won’t need to install as many lights in your pool.

Halogen pool lights

These types of pool lights were a very popular lighting choice at one point. Halogen lights are great  for in-ground pools and above ground pools and will light the entirety of your pool well. But this option isn’t the best in terms of energy efficiency and has limited color options.

Fiber optic pool lights 

You can also find fiber optic pool lights in an array of color choices and they can be installed easily under water and around your pool. Bulbs are kept in a dry box above the pool so switching them out is relatively easy. But fiber optic bulbs need a fan to keep them cool.
