    Need LIGHTS recommendation during replaster

    I am having my pool replastered and 2 new lighting niches placed for pool and spa.

    What lights do you guys recommend since I can install anything at this point?

    LED would be nice, but need a brand/model with a long term low cost of ownership. This means I forget about it for the next 10 years.

    I have a GoldLine controller and saltwater.

    Thanks,

    Lee

    The Savi Lights are nicheless. They also had issues pre Jandy.


    I would look at the Hayward LEDs. ColorLogic 4.0 Pool Spa Lights | Lighting | In Ground Pool Lighting - Hayward Pool Products

    I'm not sure your bubble is burst. The Savi lights had issues prior to Jandy's purchase of Savi. But I have not seen any real issues since then. They have clearly changed the lights, at least the look and I suspect more.

    Ditto Gwegan. Hayward's ColorLogic 4.0 are what I'd recommend. They make a pool size and a spa size.

    Avoid Pentair LED's. One of two failed at start up. Reviews are bad online such as Amazon.

    I would prefer some LED lights, but bad reviews are everywhere for all brands of LED from what I see.
    Anyone have good reviews of the Hayward?
    Anyone have Hayward Colorlogic older than 7 years?

    Thanks,

    Re: Need LIGHTS recommendation during replaster

    I just installed a Hayward 500 watt Universal ColorLogic White LED. I can't speak to lifetime, but it puts out great light and seemed well built. Why do they call a White LED Color Logic? Seems illogical to me.
