    Awfully small and the light output looks weak. Having a couple of them around the pool might work ok.

    That light hooks into the return of an above ground pool so it's one unit.

    I am sure that is not approved for use around a pool.

    Its designed for pools, its UL listed and it should be plugged into a GFCI protected plug. Is it safe? Well those are the same requirements for most lights in any pool.

    Are we looking at the same thing? Are you talking about the solar powered rope light? Because I see nothing about UL approval, designed for pools, ability to plug into GFCI socket, etc.

    I bought 2 of these for my pool..I am sure they could be brighter but I am pleased..They have a few different programs that change colors which is pretty cool..They are new so not sure how they will last.
