    What gel to use?

    I need to lower my water to change a LED bulb, the lens is a screw-on type with a gasket, I remember there is a gel I need to apply on the gasket for water-proofing, does anyone know what I should use? Thanks.

    I believe you are talking about a silicone or teflon based lubricant for pool use such as MagicLube (teflon) or MagicLube II (silicone). These are what are commonly applied to o-rings, gaskets, etc to protect the rubber and make a good seal.

    Well if you have an LED and it is burned out there's no bulb to replace. You have to replace the entire unit. This also entails pulling the old wiring as the whip is hardwired to the fixture. I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself unless you're comfortable with pulling wiring through a conduit (not as easy as it sounds!)

    Some LED units are screw in types to convert older fixtures so it might be possible to 'change the bulb"

    My LED plugs into a socket which is connected to a wire in a conduit. I do have a tube of Teflon made by Locktite, I guess I'll use it on the gasket. Thanks everyone.

    You want a speciality product made for pool use like I suggested above. I would not use the loctite product. You can get a suitable product from your local pool supply or from an online supplier.
