    Thinking about LED lights

    I'm using a Easy Touch 8 control panel (8 yrs old) with the standard 500W white lights (which have failed). Generally what is involved in upgrading to LEDs? Other than the bulbs, any new equipment? Should I stay with Pentair?

    Re: Thinking about LED lights

    Pentair is not going just have a replacement bulb I do not think ... their LED lights are a sealed enclosure that would require pulling out the old fixture and pulling the wires.

    By far the simplest thing to do is buy a LED bulb (and new seal) and put it in your existing fixture. If you go with one of the color bulbs, you can change the color and modes by cycling the power.

    I have the Colorsplash 3G.

    I was looking at the Colorsplash but found one on Amazon for $60 that has worked great for this season so far. There is no remote but the LED colors are amazing and can be cycled to different light shows or solid colors by flipping the switch.

    Just screw it in. I also changed the housing gasket.
