    Replacing Spa Lamp

    A lightning strike knocked a relay out of our Polaris Command Center. Everything still worked except the pool and spa lights, which could not be turned off. Had to unplug the relay to turn them off. Service tech repaired today but spa light won't come on. He figures the lamps out. He want's to drain spa to fix the light... is draining necessary? I've replaced lamps underwater before. Do some require draining to replace a lamp or do you think he just prefers to drain. I think I can do it myself, just unsure about the need to drain.
    My pool… 30K gunite free form, 3 ft. to 11 ft. deep, with 700 gallon spill over spa. White plaster, Jandy 60 sq. ft. DE filter, 2HP Jandy Stealth Pump, 3/4 HP booster pump, Jandy color changing lights, Jandy 400,000 BTU heater, Polaris EOS command center with in-house controls, and shortcut remote next to spa. Hayward goldline valve actuators. 2HP Polaris QT blower for spa. Dolphin Dynamic robotic cleaner. Inline Chlorinator which is used with trichlor pucks ONLY when I need to raise my CYA, which I try to keep around 30 to 40 ppm.

    You shouldn't need to drain it; it's just easier if you do. Rather than actually draining water, you could just set spa suction and pool return (pumping all the spa water into the pool), then reverse it later to fill the spa back up. You wouldn't have to lose any water.

    Re: Replacing Spa Lamp

    Thank You... That's a better solution than draining outside the pool. He was going to bring a sump pump and drain the spa onto the lawn. Plus charge me $125.00. I thought kinda high for replacing a bulb.

    Replacing the bulb yourself is really easy; you just need a new bulb and a new lens gasket. Much less than $125, and takes less than half an hour, even if you've never done it before.
