Thread: 2 or 3 colorlogic/intellibright lights in 20X40 pool?

    2 or 3 colorlogic/intellibright lights in 20X40 pool?

    Hi there. My pool is to be dug on Friday. It is a 20X40 freeform. Kind of a oval with soft curves type of thing. I am going to go with a darker bottom for a more natural or lagoon look; either a grey plaster, or a darker pebble tec plaster. Should I go with 2 or 3 lights in the pool (and 1 in spa)? I don't mind putting in the third if it will be better as you can get these farily cheap now (less than $250 each on line) However don't want to waste money if 3 is over kill? Have not decided yet whether to go with colorlogic or the intellibright, but I have the niches and I understand the same niches fit either. Hope that is right! All my other stuff is pentair so maybe I should go with the intellibright. But it is easier to find the colorlogics at a good price. Thanks in advance for any help.

    If you are going to go with a darker finish you need as many lights as possible. The colored lights loose much of there brightness when you have a dark finish.

    My pool is a 22 x 34 custom built. Although I went with white plaster, I would suggest at least 3 lights in the pool with the darker finish you plan to use. Obviously the darker finish will tend to absorb the light and not reflect it. Therefore, another one(3 lights + 1 spa) would help to insure coverage. Here is a shot of mine at night with 2 Color Logics in the Pool and one in the Spa. Good luck.

    Yes, that is a deep end. I have 2 love benches in the pool. The one on the left has an additional step added to make it a little easier to get out of the pool. Works great for the older folks and my lab. Good luck with your decisions.
