My pool light keeps tripping the GFI. I just replaced my light bulb It went on for about 10 min the GFI tripped. So I pulled the fixture out today no moister at all in it. So I remove the bulb turned on the switch GFI tripped. If I disconnect the wires the other light (have 2 lights) stays on and other outlets stay hot. So I took a compressor blew out the fixture and were the cord enters thinking may water is getting in threw the cord , did not help . Now I have it sitting in the sun to maybe at the end of the day it will work. I’m thinking I need a new Fixture.
I know the cord leaving the fixture has a splice in it . Now I assume the conduit has water in it. I wont go into detail how the splice was done I would be amazed if water got in, plus the light did function for a while I also tested the fixture it was reading 118VAC . so if the splice was bad the light would have never gone on .
Now the other problem is the light had about a 12” of extra on it to change the light , that’s why there’s a splice. And to get the cord to pull threw the conduit was almost impossible So pulling a new cord threw for new fixture might be a real challenge.
Any thoughts Ideas
