Hi, I'm looking for some thoughts and advice.
I removed my light to clean out the mustard algae from behind it. (that seems to have been a mistake now) When I went to put the screw back in there was nothing in the hole in the trim ring for the screw to thread into. What was there a couple of minutes ago? the screw now just slides through the hole (threads are ok on the screw).
I see there is a 'wedge' device that will hold the light in. My Pentair owners manual states to only use the supplied brass pilot screw as it has something to do with grounding the light. I've looked at buying another trim ring (Pentair part number 79200200-I found the part on google). It looks as though I would have to drain the water below the light, then disconnect the light wiring, pull it all the way out, then slide the old ring out, the new one in...
Does anyone know of another method? I was initially hoping to just remove the ring, pop it over the light. Then I realized the light would never fit through the ring. I'd really like to do it with out draining the water. but am not sure what's holding the niche to the steel wall behind the vinyl liner. If I unscrew the 10 screws on the trim ring does the niche fall out from behind? The drawings I've looked at are not very helpful.
Anyone else ever have this situation?
