    Jandy Watercolors LED lights don't match Jandy Nichless LED lights

    Hi all. I recently completed my pool and am loving it, though still not really able to do much but look at it and scrub it until the diamond brite has cured. One thing I'm not so pleased with is an aspect of the lighting. I did two large Jandy Watercolors 12v LED lights in the main part of the pool, a Jandy Pro Series 12v nichless LED over the sun shelf and another nichless in the spa. My gripe is that, on many of the color selections, the tone/shade of the colors are different between the Watercolors lights and the nichless ones. It's not terrible but definitely noticeable on many of the colors. I'm fairly certain there is no way to cure this, so I'm mainly posting as a lesson learned for others who may consider mixing light types in the same pool. I thought that by using the same manufacturer I'd be covered, but not so much. Some colors are totally fine and very close so it's not the end of the world. But if I were to do it over again, I'd have skipped the two large lights and put three nichless ones instead. The light they put off is excellent and they look so discrete. Hope this helps someone! Would have saved me around $400 and I'd have had uniform light.

    Jandy developed the Watercolors lights itself. The Nicheless lights they acquired when the purchased Savi. That is why they are different.

    Yes but still disappointing that they did not disclose this or inform their distributors. Easy mistake to make if you don't know the product's history. My hope is to help others avoid the same thing.
