    pentair amerlite

    i changed my bulb after it blew out but i put in a colorsplash 3g led in the pool then i changed the spa bulb to match. the spa works great no problems but my pool bulb burned out due to water leaking. i changed the bulb and let it flowt in the water before screwing it in the niche and it was leaking. after new orings my third one now. i decided it was leaking through the cord. i epoxied the cord floated it in the water no leak after 2 days so i installed it in the niche. after a weel i took it out and water was in it. i had to open it to dry so the gfci wont trip anymore. why is it still leaking? my gaskets are from Leslies pools. do i need to order the gasket from pentair. i let my light sit on the deck in the sun to heat the inside and creat a stronger seal suction before putting it in the water.

    It could be cracked somewhere that isn't visually obvious. At this point you probably need a new fixture.
