    Lights and Thermometer for Above Ground Pool

    Anyone have any recommendations for lights for an above ground pool? I have none for it right now and was wondering what is the go to choice for lights to help illuminate it in the evening.

    Also any recommendations for a thermometer?

    As for the lights, I second the cheap intex magnet lights. Get them on sale, they don't last more than a season or two. For the thermometer I am a huge fan of the wireless pool thermometer (ambient on amazon). Shows the high/low of the day and current temp for pool from the inside of your home. If you do go with the wireless pool thermometer, heed the warning and make sure you replace the desiccant pack when you change the batteries. Going on Year 3 with my wireless therm. Also have a cheapo floater by the ladder.

    I have used a Nightlighter for 3 seasons now. It has been in the pool year round and still works fine. It lights up my 18x34 just fine. As for the thermometer, get one you like and buy a couple of them, they don't last more than a couple of seasons. I use the flat blue one too.

    The Light:

    The thermometer:

    Yup, cheap but readable thermometer hung with a long shoelace from a small piece of pool noodle floats in my pool. Works great!
