I'm looking for some opinions (preferably from those that have either of these lights) to help me decide between going with 2 Pentair Intellibrite 5G Spa Lights vs. 2 Pentair Globrites for my tanning ledge. First, let me say that our "tanning ledge" will be 14" deep. I realize that's not really a tanning ledge, but after trying several ledge depths, this is the depth we like.
Right now, I'm leaning towards the Globrites, but not 100%. Things I've considered:
1. The Spa Lights seem to have a bigger housing than the Globrites, which I think would make them more visible during the day than the Globrites. Point for Globrites.
2. The Spa Lights run about $500 ea. vs. the Globrites at about $250 ea. (Amazon prices). Several points for Globrites.
3. The Globrites are well below the minimum depth (4 in.). The Spa Lights are close (about 16" to top of lens vs. 18" recommended), but I think will work.
4. Since the Spa Lights are a bit bigger, I'm thinking they may produce a wider beam angle than the Globrites. Due to the shape of the ledge and the light placement, a wider beam angle would be better (not concerned about beam range due to short ledge extension into pool). However, I'm not sure this is true. Maybe the Globrites would produce a wide enough beam angle to flood the ledge area. I've got a question into Pentair asking about the beam angle of both.
Below is a drawing of the ledge with a few dimensions. Any thoughts/opinions are appreciated!
