I have a defunct Fiberstars lighting system in the pool and spa that I will be replacing with a niche-less LED system. I can't get this fitting out from the spa wall. The PVC is just under 2" diameter.
Is there a special tool I should purchase? Local pool store guy didn't know what I was talking about when I mentioned removing an old fiber optic lens fitting. He'd never heard of a pool light that wasn't in a niche. I tried a pair of opened needle-nose pliers but the plastic is very brittle and just started to crack.
If anyone can help with a suggestion for how to remove this thing without destroying the wall fitting behind it, I'd be grateful!
Also, I'm looking at the S.R. Smith (formerly Fiberstars) TREO LED retrofit light system to replace the fiber optics. They make a "TREO Micro" light that I was considering of my approximately 550-600 gal. attached spa, while I'll use the regular TREO in the pool. Does anyone have experience using the TREO Micro in a spa, and will it give off enough light for this application? It seemed to me that if the TREO is enough to light the entire pool, then it might be overkill in the spa.
Thanks in advance!
