We just got a new inground gunite pool. (Yeah!) It's been a stressful process, mostly because of the rain this spring in Texas. (long, painful story) We finally got to swim a week or so ago, and then went out of town this weekend. When we got back, there was glass in our pump basket and glass on the bottom of the pool. I thought that was weird. We had to leave the gate unlocked so our pool company could bring us our pool cleaner (they had "forgotten" to do so earlier.). So I thought maybe a neighborhood kid or adult had decided to use our pool while we were gone and broken a glass or something. I couldn't figure anything else out, but I know that sounds weird. Well I got to thinking, maybe it was the lights. So I went outside and turned on the lights, and yhey didn't come on. So I'm pretty convinced it is a broken light. I don't want to get into the pool to verify or clean up the glass.
So, what would cause a pool light to break. The water levels were much higher than the light, so that wasn't an issue. Has anyone ever run across this? And how should I ensure that it's fixed correctly by our pool company? I'm trying not to let it stress me out.
Thanks in advance for you help.
