    Pentair Globrite

    I've had to replace 4 of my lights. Moisture behind the lens. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Re: Pentair Globrite

    How hard was it to replace them? I have one that has water in it. It looks like you can just unscrew them and pop the new one in (after turning off the power). Is this right?

    I wouldn't say its difficult if you've pulled wire before and have electrical knowledge. There really isn't anything to them.

    Re: Pentair Globrite

    I have had two fail...( same location) one under warranty. For me it was 2 out of 10 but I have fished some wire in the past....fish tape and patience I would think you could do it just fine...there expensive little f**rs though.

    Separate note....the one I replaced doesn't sync color wise with two others....any thoughts ? Reset controller any way?

    Re: Pentair Globrite

    Posted in another thread, we lost two in lightning. I didn't replace them yet as they are too expensive. I have seen poor reviews of these lately. One issue was the water behind the lens. I don't know of any other light that we could use to replace it. Does anyone? Short of replacing the niche I think we're stuck with GloBrites.

    Re: Pentair Globrite

    I ended up getting someone to do it. It was expensive, and I think I could have bought the unit online and done it myself. But water, electricity and my lack of knowledge doesn't seem like a good combination.

    The light was also causing my panel to short out, so I had to run the pool pump manually. The repair guy showed me that I could have just disconnected the light and solved the problem. But I'm comfortable with most pool stuff, but not so much with the electricals!

    Don't blame you. Better safe then dead.
