I have a 40+ year old anthony pool with an obsolete pool light. I was thinking about changing the bulb to one of those multi-color LED bulbs. I did some research on the bulbs and they are available in 120v or 12v version. Has anyone tried the 12V bulb with the OLD pool light wiring? I would obviously reroute the wire in the j-box to a 12v transformer instead of 120v. I was thinking it would be safer since I don't have to worry about moisture getting inside the lamp and tripping the gfci. Any thoughts on this idea?
I am planning on replastering the pool in the next few weeks so I always have the option of changing out the light niche, but would rather spend the money on replacing the copper lines and replacing the obsolete anthony skimmer.
