We are in the process of bidding on a pool and the design we like included 3 lights at 500 watts each. I am concerned about the wattage and the designer suggested going with 5 lights at 100watts each (not sure of the rationale). Is 5 lights too much for a 25'x45' pool?
If not, how should they be placed? All facing one side facing away from the house? I may want to go with LEDs as an alternative for energy efficiency. Any thoughts on this?
